Luka Modric has won everything possible at club level for Real Madrid, including the FIFA Club World Cup, but many believe Russia 2018 is his last chance to deliver on the international stage.

Although he had some joy at UEFA EURO 2008, when he was included in the team of the tournament, he has so far had no such luck at the FIFA World Cup. Two substitute appearances at Germany 2006 and three matches without distinction at Brazil 2014 are hardly fitting for such a sublime playmaker.

There is no question this unassuming star can deliver for his country when it matters though: over both legs in the World Cup play-off against Greece, Modric was the heart and brains of the team.
