“Argentina was a fair winner of the game, they were better, they deserved to win but these things have to be mentioned,” The Mirror quoted Modric as saying.

“I generally don’t do them but today they have to be done. I don’t like to talk about referees. I don’t have a good memory of him, for me, it wasn’t a penalty.

“Despite this, I don’t want to detract from Argentina, we have to recover for third place and win that game.”
