Luka Modric Tells Darijo Srna Exactly Where Real Madrid Team Mate Sergio Ramos Will Put Penalty

Luka Modric Tells Darijo Srna Exactly Where Real Madrid Team Mate Sergio Ramos Will Put Penalty

Croatia grabbed a famous 2-1 win over Spain this evening thanks to goals from Nikola Kalinić and Ivan Perisic but it could have been very different had Real Madrid man Sergio Ramos slotted home a penalty with the score poised at 1-1.

Alvaro Morata put the Spaniards ahead in the opening ten minutes and for a while it looked like he and his team-mates would go on to open up a comfortable margin, but Nikola Kalinić’s stunning back-heel goal levelled things for Ante Čačić’s side before half-time.

But Sergio Ramos was gifted a golden chance from 12 yards to put Spain back in front and if it were not for the actions of Real Madrid team mate Luka Modric, he may have done just that.

As Ramos prepared to step up, Modric was seen telling captain Darijo Srna where the defender would put his penalty.

The information was then passed on to Croatia goalkeeper Danijel Subašić who went on to save it:

The result means Croatia now top Group D and Spain’s second-place finish sets up a mouth-watering tie against Italy on Saturday in the last-16 of the tournament.

We imagine Real Madrid’s first day back at pre-season may be slightly awkward now.
