Modric's Might be his Last Appearance for Croatia All eyes are on Luka Modric as he leads Croatia in the Nations League Final on Sunday against Spain. The 37-year-old midfielder has so far kept quiet about his future in the national team, leaving fans to wonder if this will be his last appearance. If Croatia wins, it will be the team's first major triumph, and Modric has made it clear that the title is the top priority.
Modric's Future Uncertain Modric has grown weary of being questioned about his future and insists that the focus should be on winning the title. He has been one of Croatia's top players and played a key role in the team's recent successes, including the runner-up position in the 2018 World Cup and finishing third in the previous year's World Cup. Croatia is hoping to break their championship drought in the Nations League Final in Rotterdam.
Fans' Support Croatia is counting on its loyal fans once again, with over 15,000 expected to cheer the team on in De Kuip stadium. In the semi-finals against the Netherlands, the fans made the stadium feel like home, and Modric was particularly impressed with their show of support. He remains focused on the final, though, and isn't looking beyond it.
Spain's Chance for Redemption If Spain wins the Nations League Final against Croatia, it will be their first major international trophy in eleven years. The team has struggled to regain their form after a disappointing performance in the World Cup in 2022. Midfielder Rodri sees the final as an opportunity for redemption and winning the 7.5-kilogram silver trophy would be a defining moment.
Winning at Any Cost Both teams are aware of the weight of this win and what it means to their respective countries. As such, they will give it their all to win. For Modric, it could be his swan song in the national team, and he's determined to leave on a winning note. For Spain, it's a chance to overcome their past failures and bring home a trophy that would mean so much to their fans.
