Inter midfielder Marcelo Brozovic has tested positive for coronavirus while on international duty with Croatia. 

The Croatian Football Federation (HNS) announced Brozovic’s COVID-19 result on Friday, along with a member of staff, and confirmed he is in self-isolation. 

Additional testing took place prior to Saturday’s Nations League clash with Sweden after Croatia defender Domagoj Vida returned a positive test in Istanbul on Wednesday. 

“The test results showed two positive results, for the national team member Marcelo Brozovic and a staff member of the national team,” a statement read. 

“Both were immediately isolated from the other members of the national team. Inter were informed of the positive test.”

Vida was informed of his positive test during the midweek showdown with Turkey. 

The 31-year-old played in the first half before being withdrawn at half-time of the thrilling 3-3 draw. 

Croatia – runners-up at the 2018 World Cup – are third in League A Group 3, seven points adrift of Portugal and France. 

Brozovic has made seven Serie A appearances this season and 10 across all competitions for Inter, scoring once. 

Inter – winless in four matches in all competitions – are seventh in the league and five points behind leaders Milan ahead of the November 22 visit of Torino.
