After the match Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic said , “I’m proud of my team and of my country. For us bronze is a gold medal. We played a very tough tournament. Also I want to congratulate Morocco – they played well, they did a fantastic job. Really I am very proud, very happy. Maybe it wasn’t expected that Croatia would do something big again but we are a small country with big dreams and congratulations to everyone.”
Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic praised Modric’s “fantastic job” in Qatar.
