France and Argentina take on each other in the final of the FIFA World Cup 2022.
Luka Modric signed off his World Cup career with the consolation prize of a Qatar 2022 bronze medal.
This came after he captained Croatia to a 2-1 win over Morocco in the third-place match on Saturday.
Goals from Josko Gvardiol and Mislav Orsic helped the 2018 finalists recover from their semifinal loss to Argentina.
37-year-old Luka Modric also played his 162nd game for Croatia.
This is his fourth FIFA World Cup — 2006, 2014, 2018 and 2022.
He helped Croatia become the 4th team in FIFA World Cup history to win the 3rd place match.
Gvardiol gave Croatia a seventh-minute lead at Khalifa International Stadium, after which Achraf Dari swiftly brought Morocco level.
Then Mislav Orsic's brilliant finish just before half-time proved to be the goal to give them a creditable third place.
