Real Madrid midfield maestro, Luka Modric, is among the FIFA World best finalist for the first time in his career. He was rewarded with a place on the finalist for having a stellar performance last season.
Modric, who led his nation to their first ever World Cup final appearance and also a record back to back Champions League-winning campaign with Real Madrid is contesting the FIFA World best award with former team mate, Cristiano Ronaldo and Liverpool forward, Mohamed Salah.
His country was however thrashed 6-0 yesterday by Spain and his performance was also below per in the encounter. This is making football lovers react on social media. While some are of the opinion that the result does not matter and should not affect his chance at the award ceremony, other feel otherwise.
See their reactions below:
Modric deserve the award

Croatia got dismantled 6-0 by Spain.
Some Idiots somewhere will still try to convince me that Luka Modric deserves a Balon’dor this year more than Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
