Euro 2020: England Much Better Than In 2018 World Cup – Modric
Luka Modric believes England are a better team than the one Croatia faced in the 2018 World Cup.
Modric was part of the Croatia squad that broke the hearts of English fans three years ago when they beat the Three Lions 2-1 in the World Cup semi-finals, before losing in the final against France.
The two countries were regrouped in Group D of Euro 2020, alongside the Czech Republic and Scotland.
England and Croatia meet on Sunday at Wembley in their first game of the tournament.
Modric, one of the most influential players in world football, is preparing for a tough test.
The 2018 Ballon d’Or winner said: “For me they are better than three years ago. Without a doubt.
“The main threats? To say that one player is difficult because they have so many great players, talented players, young players who are hungry for success and who will be very dangerous at this Euro. For me, they are one of the favorites.
“Especially since they’re playing at home and it’s a good game for them. Advantage? It’s not huge but it’s like there won’t be any fans on the outside.
“That’s why I think they are definitely one of the favorites.”
