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.
