Luka Modric Shows Magical Touch As He Scores Absolute Worldie Against Scotland

Luka Modric showed he's still got the magic as he produced a stunning individual finish for Croatia against Scotland.

The Euro 2020 Group D decider was poised at 1-1 when Bruno Petkovic delivered a deft touch, then fed the ball to Modric.

Running on to the pass at the edge of the box, the Real Madrid star unleashed an outrageous finish: hitting the ball with the outside of his right boot and curling it into the top corner. Sheer genius.

The 35-year-old Ballon d'Or winner showed he's still got the class as he put Croatia in pole position to qualify for the last 16.

Ivan Perisic then made the game 3-1 with a towering header off the post as Croatia - inspired by their talisman's strike - began to take control of the tie.

Earlier in the game Nikola Vlasic had put Croatia into a first-half lead, then Callum McGregor equalised before the break, scoring Scotland's first goal of Euro 2020.

However the hope of Scotland winning and qualifying for the last 16 was snuffed out by a moment of sheer brilliance from Luka Modric.
