Luka Modric made history on Saturday when he took part in Croatia’s World Cup qualifying match against Cyprus (Croatia won 1-0).
The former Spurs midfielder became Croatia’s most capped player ever – and arguably their greatest too – after making his 135th appearance, surpassing Darijo Srna’s record.
To commemorate the achievement, the Croatian team watched a video of Modric’s highlights. Luka was then given a big cake and a standing ovation, which moved him to tears. Wholesome stuff and fully deserved – Modric is one of the truly great midfielders of our time.
