Croatia forward Ante Rebic said he was sure that the team’s captain Luka Modric could be crowned the player of the tournament at the World Cup.
"I am certain he can [achieve this]. He is a true leader of our team," Rebic said.
Modric has played in all four of Croatia’s matches at the tournament so far. He has scored two goals, while also found the net in the penalty shootout win against Denmark in the round of 16.
Croatia will play Russia in the quarter-finals in Sochi on Saturday.
