Euro 2016: Modric In Tears As Portugal Edge Past Croatia

It’s difficult to truly dislike Real Madrid’s elegant midfielder Luka Modric.

The former Tottenham man is a technically-gifted genius and the world of football is a better place with him in it.

Modric has once again expressed himself at Euro 2016, but he will no longer be involved in the prestigious tournament.

That’s because Croatia were cruelly beaten at the hands of Portugal in the Round of 16 on Saturday night. Indeed, a late extra-time goal from substitute Ricardo Quaresma settled the contest after a dire affair in Lens.

In all honesty, led by the brilliant Modric, Croatia were the better team, but they failed to truly sparkle on a frustrating night.

Ultimately, Modric’s reaction to exiting the tournament was probably the highlight of the evening. The midfielder couldn’t hold back the tears and was duly consoled by his club teammate Cristiano Ronaldo.

Poor Luka.
