Luka Modric admits that he is finding it difficult that Croatia will not be at this year’s World Cup.
The Tottenham midfielder will line up for his country this evening in a friendly against Austria.Â Niko Kranjcar and Vedran Corluka miss out through injury.
“It’s painful for us that we’re not there,” Modric told the club’s official site. “It’s hard to accept and such a shame because we have such a good team and I believe if we’d have got to the tournament we could have done well.
“Our players around Europe are in great form as well.
“We need to turn it around now and prepare for Euro 2012 qualification. We need to look forward.”
