DID. YOU. SEE. THAT.
Goodness gracious me...He’s done it again. Luka Modric played a great game against Scotland yesterday, scoring a goal and also registering an assist to help seal his country’s progression to the knockout phase. And what a goal that was! Have you seen it? Never mind, go watch it again! And again and again! You don’t get to see that everyday.
The croatian wizard was basically Gandalf.

- Curious about El Capitan’s future?
Sergio Ramos has informed several Real Madrid players that he will play for PSG. [Cope]— Real Madrid Info ³⁴ (@RMadridInfo) June 22, 2021
- Brahim seems uncertain about his future. Probably less certain than the rest of us seem to be at this point.
️ Brahim Diaz: "My future? At the moment I have no idea where I will play, I hope to find out soon. At Real Madrid I was happy and at Milan I am very happy, we will see what happens." [@CmdotCom_En]— Infinite Madrid (@InfiniteMadrid) June 22, 2021
- Mbappe has reportedly asked to leave PSG. Both Marca and AS have articles reporting this. Weird timing, given that PSG are strengthening their squad and look very much like a winning project in progress. Yet, this might give Los Blancos some hope about their No 1 target.
Another good day for football fans
We get to watch four matches on this day.
- Sweden VS Poland
- Slovakia VS Spain
- Portugal VS France
- Germany VS Hungary
All of these are important matches and especially the difficulty of the Group of Death games is through the roof.
So, what’s tonight’s prediction?
Let us know which match you will be watching. Have fun and may the madridismo be with you all.
