Modric is yet to play a minute of Euro 2016, and he has yet to score a goal.
In fact, he has not played a single second of any of the five matches, as the French side is still looking to qualify for the quarter-finals of the competition.
The 28-year-old was the best player in the tournament but was left out of France’s squad for the tournament in Italy.
It was an unusual move, given Modric has been the best defender in the competition so far, and his inclusion was seen as a sign that France would be a tough opponent.
But it seems Modric was not the only player who was left off the squad.
Italian coach Giuseppe Marotta has revealed that the 23-year, 34-cap Modric did not participate in Wednesday’s practice because he was too busy preparing for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers.
Marotta told the AS Roma daily newspaper: “He did not train with us because he is a footballer and has been training a lot, he is very good and we are trying to find him a place to play.”
That is understandable, but Modric will be disappointed to have not been included.
France lost 3-1 to England in their final group game, with Modric providing an assist for the goals against England.
He has scored eight goals and assisted six in 24 appearances for the national side, with his best performances in Europe come against Italy, Germany and Spain.
And it seems that Modric could be on his way out of the France team, with Marotta saying: “We have lost three players to injury and we will see how it goes.”
He is a very talented player and he is looking forward to playing for his country.
