My dear friend Roger produced this great drawing of Croatia´s midfielder Luka Modric this week. Modric has been one of the stars of this summer’s World Cup in Russia and I thought the portrait deserved to be shared far and wide.

Roger says, “I have been watching Luka with RM over the years and so often his performances have been exceptional. In my opinion he is a very brave and skillful player.

Yesterday I had him in mind after the England game and made the drawing. It was a great pleasure to draw him and I hope that I caught some of his Croat features and his passion.

The WC games have been played in a strange fashion and the hosts seem not to have put a foot wrong. I expect Trump to take credit for it’s success on Monday!

England’s goal after five minutes and their first half performance was very creditable but it was obvious that they could not sustain that. Everything changed, changed utterly in Croatia’s favour in the second half. A terrible beauty was born!

France will not be an easy task. Roll on the final.”
