Carlos Bacca to miss group stage

Colombia striker Carlos Bacca has a leg injury and will be out for the rest of the World Cup group stage, the Colombia Football Federation confirmed on Tuesday.

The Sevilla player sustained a leg muscle strain in training and will be sidelined for Thursday's game against Ivory Coast and the match against Japan on June 24.

"Following the tests done by Colombia's medical team, led by Doctor Carlos Ulloa, it has been determined that player Carlos Bacca has suffered a first degree muscle strain and will require a period of treatment from seven to 10 days," a statement from the federation said.
