3. Luka Modric (Croatia)
Luka Modric was already considered one of the premier midfielders in world football. But it is safe to say he has reached a new level at this World Cup.
Modric has orchestrated the Croatian midfield with near perfection, performing a variety of roles seamlessly.
Modric has been instrumental to his team’s success at this FIFA World Cup 2018 and has dominated the midfield nearly every time he has stepped on the pitch. A lot depends on the midfield maestro tonight.
