The Croatian Football Federation (HNS) has issued a press release on Monday after news that former global and associate of the coaching staff, Ognjen Vukojević, has left the camp just two days before the team's semi-final clash with England at the World Cup.

"We can confirm that Fifa's disciplinary committee has sent a warning to the player Domagoj Vida due to his video statement following the 2018 Fifa World Cup match between Russian Federation and Croatia", football's world governing body said Monday (NZT).

Following the 2018 FIFA World Cup quarterfinal match between Russian Federation and Croatia in Sochi, Vida and Vukojević sent messages on social media intended for their friends in Ukraine - where they had spent a significant part of their careers.

In a video posted on social media by former Croatia global Vukojevic, Vida was shown shouting "Glory to Ukraine" which had angered Russian officials given the past between the two countries. I've got friends there [in Ukraine] since Dynamo Kyiv, I didn't mean anything else.

Vida has just left Ukrainian club Dynamo Kyiv and Vukojevic also played for the club during his career.

Vida's fate is now in FIFA's hands, with the body examining the incident.

Russian state media ran reports about the video, which also drew fire from Russian officials. "I love Russians and I love Ukrainians". "Until we have evaluated all information available, we can not comment further".

Relations between Ukraine and World Cup hosts Russia remain fraught after Russia's 2014 annexation of the Crimean peninsula and its backing for a pro-Russian uprising in the east of the country.

"Such actions should be punished", parliament's sports committee member Dmitry Svishchyov told the RIA Novosti state news agency.

This could cost him a spot in the World Cup semi-final.

However, the video was taken after the match and the defender - who has been linked with moves from Turkish club Besiktas to several Premier League sides, including Liverpool - goes on to say he was only joking and "the victory is for Croatia, no politics".
