English Media Never Gave Us A Chance Against England - Modric


Luka Modric  said the English media underestimated them (Croatia) and this only served as a motivation for their Semi Final win over England.

England had taken the lead earlier in the game but Croatia, had to dig deep to get the win from behind and even if it was the extra time. Mandzukic sublime finish in at 109 minutesm  sent them into Final.

"We proved everything differently that people were talking. Especially English journalists, pundits from television, they underestimated Croatia tonight and that was a huge mistake" . Modric told ITV

"All these words from them we take, we were reading and we were saying 'OK, today we will see who will be tired.' As I said, they should be more humble, and respect opponents more. That's it."

He also believed that his team controlled the game, physically and mentally throughout the game.

"We showed again that we were not tired, we dominated the game physically, mentally in all aspects," he said. "We should have killed the game before extra-time, but this is an amazing achievement for us, a dream come true.
"After such a long time we are in the final, the biggest success in Croatian sporting history. We have to be proud."
