Croatia needed spot kicks to advance against Denmark in the last 16 and against Russian Federation in the quarter-finals.

"To bring them back before that would be, 'OK, I have you for the first match of the season, but maybe I don't have you in three or four months'". "Croatia are really strong mentally". Before the tournament started, there were doubts over us.

"For us, we are not the favourites".

"We will analyse all of this and we will make sure that the Croatians are not in good shape, and that we can block their best player and their best plan of attack". There are two teams in the final, a Cup and there are 90 minutes more. "We are chasing something and will do everything to succeed".

Real Madrid's Luka Modric is Croatia's captain and has nearly singlehandedly led his nation to the final, potentially at the cusp of winning it too.

"The Croats are not just Modric".

"Even their defenders are outstanding players".

"I don't think Man United will sell him for a second time despite how underwhelming he was last season", Downie told the Transfer Talk podcast.
