Croatia, already a finalist in 2018, managed to keep its place on the podium of the World Cup-2022 thanks to the victory (2-1) against Morocco in the match for 3rd place.

While the future of the iconic Modric remains uncertain at 37 despite still impressive activity on both sides of the pitch, his teammates have done everything to make him wish to continue the adventure.

Gvardiol, with a header from a superb combination, quickly opened the scoring (7), while Orsic restored the advantage with a splendid curling shot (42).

Meanwhile, Dari, heckled since the start of the World Cup, had also managed to equalize with a header (9), taking advantage of a rare hesitation from Livakovic.

Morocco, the first African team to reach the semi-finals of a World Cup,  fails to become the first team from the continent to finish on the podium.
