Don’t blame Lionel Messi – Luka Modric after Croatia’s 3-0 win

Luka Modric had a night to remember against Argentina as he led Croatia to a 3-0 win in their second group stage game of the World Cup.

Modric not only dominated the midfield but also scored a goal to help his side book a place in the knock-out stage of the tournament.

Speaking to the media after the game, the Real Madrid playmaker reflected on how the game went and how Lionel Messi cuts a lonely figure in Argentina’s team.

“He’s an incredible player but he can’t be expected to do it all on his own. In football you need help from your team mates – even when you are a great player,” the 32-year old said.

“Leo looks fine to me, but by playing the game we played, that went against him. We closed down spaces and stopped Mascherano and other Argentina players getting the ball to him.

“It was very important for us to do that right at the start of the game and once we found our rhythm with the ball, we started taking control.”
