Luka Modric was voted man of the match in the 0-2 victory against Club América in the Club World Cup semi-final. The Croatian, who played the entire game, shone yet again thanks to his flawless display in the middle of the park: “It is an important win. We are happy with the result and the way we played after the first 25 minutes”.

“We started a little weak but that's normal after such a journey and adapting. After that we played well, created chances, scored two goals to win the game and now we're in yet another final”.

“I don't know what to say. To be honest I don't like it. It creates a lot of confusion. The other day we had a meeting where it was explained to us but for me that's just not football. I hope that this is not something that lasts. We need to focus on our game but my initial feelings about this are not good”.
