Luka Modric set to play at Euro 2024, aged 38, as Croatia boss says World Cup ‘won’t be his last major tournament’

LUKA MODRIC will carry on playing international football until at least Euro 2024, his coach has hinted.

The Croatian, who continues to defy his 37 years with stunning performances for Real Madrid, is set to star for his nation at the upcoming World Cup.

He will be 38 by the time the Euros rolls around

But Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic rejected the idea of Modric retiring after the tournament next month.

As quoted by Juraj Vrdoljak, Dalic said: “I’m certain he’ll stay on the team, and that this won’t be his last major tournament.

“Luka is playing amazing football and he can continue doing so.”

Euro 2024 will be hosted in Germany and will see the return of summer tournaments after the anomaly of the Qatar World Cup.

Modric won the Ballon d’Or after he helped guide Croatia to the final of the 2018 World Cup, making him the first player to disrupt the Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi domination.

The former Spurs man, who turned 37 last month, also helped Real Madrid win the Champions League over Liverpool last season.

He has not slowed down at all this season either, playing 14 games for Los Blancos so far.

By the time Euro 2024 rolls around, Modric will be 38 years old.


Croatia captain Modric already has 154 caps to his name, and will likely add a load more before Euro 2024 if his national team boss is correct.

Modric has 23 goals and 24 assists to his name in the national team too.
