Real Madrid and Croatia midfielder Luka Modric broke one of the tournament records in the Euro 2024 match against Italy.

The Croatian footballer failed to convert a penalty in the 54th minute, losing the duel to Gianluigi Donnarumma. However, just a minute later Modric scored against Italy.

Thanks to this goal, Modric became the oldest player in the history of European Championships. At the time of the goal, the player was 38 years and 289 days.

Recall that the match against Italy - the last chance for Croatia to reach the playoffs of Euro 2024. Luka Modric's team needs to win to qualify for the next round.

It should be noted that Cristiano Ronaldo has not scored at Euro 2024. The Portuguese genius can score at the sixth consecutive Euro. In addition, he will take away the status of the oldest scorer in the history of the tournament, because at the moment he is already 39 years old.
