Luka Modric Admits The Qatar World Cup Will Be His LAST International Tournament...

With Croatia and Real Madrid Star Turning 38 Before Euro 2024!

Luka Modric stated that the 2022 Qatar World Cup would likely be the last international tournament he plays for Croatia. The 37-year-old playmaker. Who was an essential part of Croatia’s 2018 World Cup victory, has been retired since winning the Golden Ball for best player.

Modric was bestowed the Ballon d’Or for his fantastic work in his home country and Croatia.

Modric implied that he was aware that he was old enough to qualify for this competition in the Croatian National team.

Modric will be 38 years old at the 2024 UEFA European Championship. And 40 at the 2026 FIFA World Cup tournament’s completion. So it makes sense that he has decided to call it quits on international soccer’s biggest stage.

His bizarre decision came from his comments just a month ago. Asserting he wasn’t thinking about international retirement during the UEFA Champions League matches where they competed in the final four.

I’m focusing on competing in the Nations League, and I know the appropriate time to determine whether I think about it is after that. I’ve made no decisions; I’m focused on the Nations League. Maybe we will be able to qualify for the last four, then we’ll move on to the World Cup, and we’ll then see what happens.

I’ll attempt to make the best decision at that time. At that time, I’ll talk with our head coach, with the people I trust. I’m happy with that same thought.

Modric, a thirty-six-year midfielder, will probably play for his country in the Nations League semifinals in September. A couple of months from now, his final World Cup will be when Croatia goes up against Belgium, Canada, and Morocco in the group stages.

The Player has emerged as the leading natural goalscorer in the current generation of Croatian footballers. With an appearance record of 158 games, scoring 22 goals.
