Croatia victorious after magical Modric volley

Luka Modric has scored a sensational volley to hand Croatia the win against Turkey at Parc des Princes.

The amazing atmosphere from Turkish fans proved to give their team an early advantage. It almost felt like a home game for the Turks, as thousands chanted for The Crescent-Stars.

Croatia soon found their feet, and were prepared to spill blood for their team. Corluka looked like he had just been in the wars after Cenk Tosun threw a flying elbow which would have been saluted in the WWE.

That moment marked the turning point for The Vatreni, as Modric scored a perfectly hit volley, that bounced under Turkish goalkeeper Volkan Babacan.

Frustrations flared from Turkish fans, as their side only managed to produce two shots from nine on target. That same frustration was evident in the Turkish players, as they gave away pointless fouls.
