Lionel Messi of Argentina and Luka Modric of Croatia are probably the two players who will make or break Tuesday’s first World Cup semi-final. Like Messi, who is now 35 and plays for Paris Saint-Germain, it seems likely that Modric will end his World Cup career in the final or third-place play-off this weekend.

Brazil was the favorite to win the tournament, but Croatia beat them thanks to Modric’s third penalty goal.
