Recall, Luka Modric won the Golden Ball at the 2018 World Cup, where he also became a finalist with Croatia. Luka went on to win the Ballon d’Or and was named the men’s best player by FIFA and UEFA for the 2017/18 season. He also won the Golden Ball at the FIFA World Club Cup with Real Madrid, and helped the club win their third consecutive Champions League title – and that’s just part of it.
Modric trained with his teammates in Madrid on Monday and is included in the 19-player lineup for the Champions League match between Real Madrid and Club Brugge, which will be played on Tuesday at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium in Madrid.
On Saturday, Modric played the last 25 minutes against Atlético Madrid, which was his first appearance after 19 days and a muscle injury.
After the match, HRT reported that Modric told the Spanish radio station Onda Cero that he had recovered from his injury and that he would join the Croatia national team for the upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers against Hungary on October 10 and against Wales three days later in Cardiff.
Modric could also have a place in the starting line-up against Club Brugge on Tuesday.
Last week, for the fifth consecutive year, the Croatian representative was ranked among the top 11 football players in the world by the FIFA FIFPro.
