Luka Modric returns to Madrid despite Croatia having one more Euro 2020 match to play
- The Croatian has asked his national team to exclude him from the upcoming game against Georgia.
- Luka's team have already qualified and the match is basically a formality.
- Modric knew Real Madrid would appreciate this gesture, considering he came back injured from the previous international break.
According to Marca, Luka Modric is already back in the Spanish capital despite his national team having one more international break match to play. Croatia have already qualified for Euro 2020 and Luka had no reasons to risk another injury.
Real Madrid are going to appreciate this decision and Modric knows it. The Croatian wanted to show his commitment to the club by leaving the national team early to avoid another injury with important matches in La Liga and the Champions League incoming.
Modric was injured two times during his matches with Croatia and came back with problems from the previous break. Obviously, it's great to see him coming back to Madrid in good health and ready to help Zinedine Zidane.
We need Luka at his best - like during these matches:
