Luka Modrić, the midfield general of Real Madrid, is the key man for Croatia at the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia and he needs to be the same for his national side in tonight’s Argentina Vs Croatia. He’s been a master for the Los Blancos ever since his arrival in 2012 and is absolutely the heartbeat of the national side as well.

Luka Modrić is among the top three midfielders in the world and along with Ivan Rakitić on his side, could help the Eastern Europeans spring a few surprises in the tournament.

For fans of the Bundesliga, Kramarić might not be considered much of an unknown – but to everyone else, this 26-year-old arrives in Russia with a point to prove and in the top form of his life. The striker has fired Hoffenheim into the Champions League places in the 2017-18 season and filled the hole left by Sandro Wagner’s departure to Bayern Munich.
