A “heartbreaking” photo of “Man of the Match” Luka Modric is going viral

A roller coaster of emotions for Luka Modric and all Croats. The captain first saw a crucial penalty saved by Gianluigi Donnarumma, but he corrected that kick less than a minute later. However, the football icon still saw qualification slip away from the bench. The Man of the Match award was only a consolation.

People on social media described Modric’s shocking photo as “heartbreaking”. The 38-year-old Real Madrid midfielder’s appearance speaks volumes.

This won’t be any consolation to Modric either, but at 38 years and 289 days he has replaced Austria’s Ivica Vastić as the highest scorer, who was only 32 days younger than him at the 2008 European Championships.

Modric’s former teammate will no doubt be keen to seize the record in the coming weeks. Cristiano Ronaldo is 39 years old. The 41-year-old Pepe could also beat Modric in this edition.
