#CROENG: England underestimated Croatia - Modric

Luka Modric says the English media underestimated Croatia and revealed his side used this as encouragement for their win over England.
England were beaten 2-1 by Croatia in the World Cup semi-final on Wednesday in Moscow, thanks to Mario Mandzukic's goal in extra-time. Gareth Southgate's side were slight favourites for the clash, with Croatia having played extra-time and penalties twice on the trot in the knockout stages, and Modric says the English should be more humble and respectful ahead of games.

Modric told ITV: "We proved everything differently that people were talking. Especially English journalists, pundits from television, they underestimated Croatia tonight and that was a huge mistake. All these words from them we take, we were reading and we were saying 'OK, today we will see who will be tired.' As I said, they should be more humble, and respect opponents more. That's it."
