Euro 2024: The tragedy of Luka Modric and the bitter end for Croatia

The European Championship has its first big drama: In the match against Italy, Croatia’s greatest footballer celebrates his resurrection – and becomes a tragic figure at the very last second.

When it was all over that evening in Leipzig, when a carpet bombardment of colorful UEFA beer mugs had fallen from the corner of the Italian fan block onto the pitch, when the entire squad of the “Squadra Azzurra” was just a cheering heap of human bodies lying on the pitch, when the arena was shaking and his own teammates were sinking to the ground as if dead – Luka Modrić was seen sitting there quietly in the semi-darkness of the substitutes’ bench. With his gray tracksuit jacket pulled over his sweaty red and white checked shirt, he shook his head very quietly. Dumbfounded by the last-minute drama that had just unfolded before his eyes.
