Luka Modric has won the Golden Ball at the World Cup for being the player of the tournament. His solid performance guided his country to their first World Cup final.
Modric's past has come to light in revealing documentary footage.
这段影片的拍摄者 Pavle Balenovic 回忆说，这段视频拍摄于 1989 年和 1990 年之间，当时他打算拍摄一部有关狼的纪录片，他也是多年之后才得知画面中的小男孩是年幼的莫德里奇。
So I took the shots of my friend and his son collecting their herd of goats, closing the pen and some scenes directed as it was planned for editing a wolf documentary...
Then just a few years ago I got some information on who the small boy collecting his father's herd in my episode is.
I had a difficult path, but you should never give up...I never doubted myself, as you don't have to be tall to play football.
但是他扛着 420 万克罗地亚人的希望与荣光，拼命奔跑、掌控全场，体能似乎永不枯竭，终于带领“格子军团”创造奇迹，也拿到了个人的至高荣誉。
Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic said: "He did the lion shareof our play and he was a deserved winner of the Golden Ball." lion's share: the largest portion
I'm focused only on the success of my team. It's very nice to be among the possible candidates, but I don't care about the individual prizes. I want Croatia to win the World Cup, as the rest is beyond my control.
I am proud of the award. The incredible fan support makes me even happier. You know that despite the defeat you've achieved something big, but it's hard when you come so close and fall short.
