Croatia is running away with Group D in Russia and their star midfielder is the man to thank for it.
Captain Luka Modric led the way for Croatia in their 3-0 beatdown of Argentina on Thursday, scoring the second of his sides trio of goals. Modric’s 80th minute strike essentially iced the victory for Zlatko Dalic’s side, which is 2-0-0 in their group and sitting in first place.
The Real Madrid man completed more passes (36) than any other Croatian offensive player and helped shut down a star-studded Argentina attack. His two goals lead the team so far this tournament as Croatia eyes a deep run in the knockout stage.
Modric beat out tough competition from Denmark’s Christian Eriksen, France’s N’Golo Kante, and Croatian teammate Ivan Rakitic
