The 37-year-old ruled the midfield fight today as Croatia edged past Brazil on penalties after a 1-1 draw to arrive at the World Cup semi-finals for the third time, driving Sosa to hail Modric.
The Real Madrid midfielder won the Golden Ball in 2018, the honor for the best player at the World Cup as Croatia arrived at the last in Russia prior to tumbling to France.
Modric guaranteed the Ballon d’Or in the wake of assisting Madrid to be the Heroes and winners of the Champions League and crown around the same time and has again conveyed in FIFA’s top competition four years later in Qatar.
Luka Modric should be positioned as one of the most incredible midfielders ever, as indicated by his Croatia partner Borna Sosa.
He’s in the main five midfielders ever. Totally no one performed on his level at 37 years of age, Sosa told journalists.
He’s appearing from one year to another how significant a player he is for ourselves and Real Madrid.
At the point when it’s generally significant, he gives us this experience, certainty and he’s truly quiet ready.
The Croatian players are extremely glad to have him in the group and, ideally, he will remain with us as long as he can.
Marcelo Brozovic and Mateo Kovacic offered help for Modric in Croatia’s midfield triplet, who overran Brazil’s solitary holding midfielder Casemiro.
The players believe in themselves, and I can say they have the best midfielders of all time. Brozovic, Kovacic and Modric.
Assuming they are on their game, we have some control over the game 90% of the time and on account of that we can take down groups.
The shoot-out triumph could never have been conceivable without the brilliant Dominik Livakovic, who made the most saves by a Croatian at a World Cup subsequent to recording 11 stops against Tite’s side.
While Neymar figured out how to beat Livakovic in extra-time before substitute Bruno Petkovic evened out with four minutes remaining, Sosa considers Croatia lucky to have a sublime goalkeeper to call upon.
He showed many, ordinarily all through his profession that he is a brilliant goalkeeper. And he provided the teamwith a great deal of certainty.
Against a group like Brazil – they will constantly have chances since you can’t close everything against these sorts of players.
To win against Brazil, you really want to have this sort of karma and a goalkeeper on the most extreme level like we had today. We’re exceptionally cheerful, yet it was an extremely debilitating game.
Sosa desires to keep on leaving a mark on the world as Croatia hope to raise the stakes than their keep going competition on the worldwide stage.
How glad he is, so such an extent that we endure Brazil, which is quite possibly of the best group On the planet Cup,” he proceeded. “Presently, we’re anticipating the semi-finals.
There were a ton of feelings. A ton of blissful tears since we are truly showing many, many outcomes.
As our country, no one expects this and no one puts stock in us, and that is the reason it’s truly close to home when you accomplish things like this.
For my purposes, Brazil is football and football is Brazil. At the point when you beat Brazil, it’s perhaps the best inclination of all time.”
