Our corpulent defender played for the second team of Schalke which is defeated in the awy match against RW Essen (0:1). Kolasinac was starter and spent 76 minutes on the field, when he has been replaced by Mickels.
Otherwise, this is the first game for Kolasinac after 203 days of break because of the injury of the front cruciate ligaments. He played for Schalke last time on 23rd August last year in the first round of Bundesliga, and left the field after just 16 minutes.
This was a test for Kolasinac, and he successfully passed it, and probably we will see him in the first team of Schalke next weekend. Thus, he will be able to compete for the upcoming match of qualifications for the European Championship that will be played against Andorra on 28th March.
