Croatia struck a blow on Tuesday. On the brink after his first two matches, with a defeat against England (1-0) and a draw against the Czech Republic (1-1), the Croatian vice-world champion won his qualification by strangling Scotland (3-1).

A victory marked by the magnificent goal signed by Luka Modric on the hour mark to restore the advantage to Croatia. And in addition to putting the squad on the road to victory, this achievement also allowed the Madrilenian to heal his place in the Croatian football record book.

Already the youngest Croatian player to have scored at the Euro since his goal against Austria in 2008, at 22 years and 273 days, Luka Modric has indeed also become, at 35 years and 286 days, the oldest Croatian player to score at the Euro.
