    Victory for Croatia!

    That was the last chance for Morocco as En-Nesyri’s header went over the bar. The referee blew the final whistle and Croatia took third place in this World Cup with a 2-1 win. This is also Modric’s final World Cup game as he will retire from international football after this tournament.
