France defender Adil Rami has only a minor neck injury after landing heavily on his shoulder during the scoreless draw with Croatia in a friendly.

The Lille player was injured in stoppage time on Tuesday at the Stade de France while trying to perform a scissor kick. He was carried off the pitch on a stretcher and underwent scans at La Pitie Salpetriere hospital.

The French football federation said on Wednesday in a statement that the scans "didn't reveal any sign of seriousness."

Lille says Rami will return to the club later on Wednesday and will be monitored by medical staff.

Leader Lille hosts Caen in the French league on Saturday.
