Coach Zlatko Dalic claimed on Friday that 37-year-old captain Luka Modric would play for Croatia at the Euro 2024 tournament if the side qualified. Dalic believes Modric will play if Croatia qualifies for Euro 2024. They advanced to the semi-finals. They were eliminated by eventual champions Argentina. Largely thanks to the playmaker’s efforts in the middle of the field.
Dalic believes Modric will play if Croatia qualifies for Euro 2024
On Friday, Zlatko Dalic, Croatia’s coach, said that the team captain, Luka Modric, despite being 37 years old, would participate in Euro 2024. Assuming Croatia makes it to Euro 2024, Dalic expects Modric to appear. As a result of the playmaker’s efforts in the middle of the field, they could go to the semi-finals, where the eventual champions, Argentina, finally ousted them.
Croatia and Morocco will play for third place on Saturday before Sunday’s final pits Argentina against France. Dalic has said his hope is that the small Real Madrid playmaker will attend Euro 2024. I expect it with great suspense.
“He will undoubtedly show up, but his motivations are ultimately up to him. In my opinion, he will, but the choice is entirely his.”
Croatia shocked the world by coming back from behind and forcing extra time in a record three knockout matches at the World Cup four years ago in Russia. Modric was named the tournament’s most valuable player. Germany will host the match between June 14 and July 14, 2024.
