Spain midfielder Busquets fit to face Croatia

Spain midfielder Sergio Busquets is fit to play against Croatia

at the European Championship after being cleared Friday of a right

foot injury.

The Spain midfielder fell to the ground clutching his right foot

following a tackle by Keith Andrews in the second half of

Thursday’s 4-0 victory over Ireland at the Arena Gdansk.

Spain says Busquets underwent an X-ray on Friday, and says the

23-year-old Barcelona is not seriously injured.

Busquets, who is a defensive midfielder, finished his 41st match

for the defending champions by completing 70 passes and nearly

scoring a late goal.

Spain and Croatia both have four points at the top of Group C

heading into Monday’s match.
