Good points Rupa. I've mentioned this before because I think it does matter, Modric's form for Madrid and Croatia are quite different. He's been in and out for Madrid, but until I see a dip in form for when he plays for the NT I don't see any reason to leave him out. Of course we'll have to see what effect delaying the Euros and not playing regularly does to him and the other older players on the team. Rakitic for me doesn't really deserve to start. Still a valuable player, but I would prefer Kovacic to start.

The only player I'm worried about is Modric tbh. Rakitic is fantastic but we've seen that Vlasic is a viable option and Kovacic can also plug in. We're stacked in midfield but someone as good as Modric is irreplaceable. It depends on the opponent but I'd like to see him play further up with less defensive duties.

The rest of the team are pretty much still in their primes.
