TURIN, Italy — Juventus winger Marko Pjaca will miss the rest of the season because of a knee injury.
Pjaca was stretchered off the field in the 64th minute of Croatia’s 3-0 loss to Estonia after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.
The Croatian soccer federation says the 21-year-old Pjaca will undergo surgery and needs "several months" to recover.
Pjaca is expected to be out for six-to-eight months.
Juventus teammate Claudio Marchisio, who missed the end of last season and the European Championship with a similar injury, wrote on Twitter "we’re all with you! Be strong … You will return to your best to show all your talent!"
