Handled the wet conditions unbelievably. He's played some amazing games for us but his handling of the ball and passing in the second half blew my mind. It's like the pitch dried up only for him.
He was the first player I noticed who started putting air on his passes, even the 5-10m short ones.

Discussing Modric vs Boban with a friend last night, who was better etc. Boban & that initial NT were absolute legends, as they were the pioneers of the cult of the Vatreni, made us all so proud for standing up for Croatia, paying their own way for NT matches etc. Loved Boban as a player but have to put Modric ahead overall, and part of that is his longevity. 36 years old & still a crucial member of a top, top club side and still doing the business for the NT. Like fine wine indeed.
