    When you gamble like that, better win the tackle else you are opening up a ton of space behind.

    I reckon Modric will retire from NT football now?

    Actually, they will play the runner-up in England's group.

    Dunno. He might hang around long enough to play the WC in 2026. He extends at RM by playing super sub role next season, I’m sure he could get enough games somewhere else and then it’s the World Cup. Maybe by then the surrounding cast has gotten better.

    A strange refereeing standard today. How can the ref not see a clear arm right in front of him? And then 8 minutes when there weren't prolonged periods of injuries etc.?

    I just noticed that all 5 Euros Modric played in ended in a similar way - late goal when they were on the verge of progression or at least forcing PKs.

    It's a 24-team tournament.

    Croatia was trash in these group matches, says enough that Italy who are also bad were better. Only feel sorry for Modric, but they didn’t deserve to go through.

    Very underwhelming from Croatia

    This whole best 3rd place teams is bullshit anyway, objectively Croatia absolutely do not deserve to go through to the knockout stage.

    They never should have expanded the Euros in the first place, I was totally against it. Expanding it further to include 32 teams would make it even more absurd because it would essentially entirely defeat the purpose of having qualifiers. There aren't enough good teams in Europe to justify a 24-team tournament let alone a 32-team tournament.

    He'd be fantastic signing for us imo.

    He's excellent on the ball, great off-ball defending especially headers (we need that) and he can play as a LB. Having Carlo will help him a lot.

    Modric is older than his country, let that sink in.

    Close to joining Juve for 40 ME apparently. Can't see them letting an Italian talent slip away especially with Motta being their new coach.

    Turkiye and Portugal winning is possible, but England winning by 3 goals is almost impossible. :D

    I've watched all the games so far and I stand by what I wrote. Teams like Scotland are why the expansion was a mistake. Not to mention that Portugal won Euro 2016 by among other things finishing third in a group with powerhouses Austria, Iceland and Hungary and then went on to not win a single game in the regular 90 minutes until the semi-finals. I'm sorry but that's just ridiculous and the 24 team format enables that.

    16 team format was top tier. But UEFA will never go back to that as more games mean more money.

    Exactly, it's all about money which allows them to make one idiotic decision after the other.

    Greece was probably the worst team to ever win the Euros and it happened when the competition had 16 teams; most of them had star-studded lineups.

    International football is unpredictable, rarely does the most entertaining team win the competition.

    That said, I'm against the expansion, be it in Euros, WC Copa America or UCL but FIFA and UEFA want more money so..

    When you have a tournament where both Czechia AND Slovakia qualify, that's not good quality.

    If we wanted to sign him, it'll take one 4-minute phone call from Carlo to convince him..

    Edit: Some outlets reporting that Juve looking for alternatives e.g. Jakub Kiwior as Bologna don't want to sell to them on account of how they poached Motta..
