Football is fair to Modric

Modric will not miss his appointment with the World Cup. The runner-up in the world qualified for Qatar not without suffering, in a match that he dominated from beginning to end and that he had to solve long before the Kudryashov’s own goal. The Russian side, with ten minutes to go, scored the goal that buried his country’s options, which was worth a draw to achieve the goal.

Before that, and after, everything that happened in the meeting was starred in Croatia. From beginning to end he took the reins of the clash and had Modric and Brozovic to channel the game. The danger came from the wings, with the wonderful lateral centers of Sosa and especially Juranovic. One of them almost took advantage of it Kramaric with a very centered headbutt that saved Safonov. The peculiar Russian goalkeeper was subjected to a bombardment. On the sides and from outside the area Croatia tried at all times. It was a miracle that the scoreboard was not altered in those moments.

The passage of time worsened the state of the lawn. The incessant rain turned the stage into an almost epic place. Whoever achieved the classification would do so under unique circumstances for a feat. Karpin, quite overcome during the whole match, put in one more center-back and was withdrawing his missing artists, especially Golovin. Dalic’s response was to put in another tip, Petkovic, and the area became a subway car at rush hour. Impossible to see more people wandering there.

Russia had no other intention than to bail water and get out of that siege as best it could. However, when it seemed that fate would reward him without deserving it, a Sosa center, one more, was inadvertently finished off by Kudryashov at his own door to the ecstasy of the Croatian public and disappointment of Karpin and his people. Croatia will be in the World Cup, their sixth of the last seven. An award for his ambition and that of Modric, also a leader in Qatar when he arrives at the meeting at the age of 37 …
