Luka Modric is the boss

As against Nigeria in the group stage, Zlatko Dalic decided to get Luka Modric down a notch in his 4-2-3-1 start to make way for Kramaric in support of Madzukic. Result, the Madrilenian found himself in midfield alongside Ivan Rakitic. For a rather vague rendering, the Croatian playing master finding himself far too low on the pitch to make differences and be this number 10 that we liked to see since the beginning of the tournament.  Exceeded by the Russian speed on the opener, Modric has really struggled in the first act, not really knowing where to position to not unbalance his team. We just did not recognize it. Dalic understood it well and corrected the shot at the break. And the part of Modric has completely changed. The Madrilenian is again the real maestro and the metronome of his team. A little delight. And it is also from his right paw, corner, that came to the second goal of Vida in the extension. Although he was a little shaken on his attempt, the ball touching the post before returning to the other side, the Real midfielder also responded to the penalty shootout. A real boss match. With a Modric at this level, Croatia has a lot to say for the final title. Real midfielder also responded at the penalty shootout. A real boss match.
