Doha, Qatar (AP) -- Luka Modric is set for one more World Cup campaign and one last chance to drive Croatia to the title.

The 37-year-old midfielder will lead Croatia when the team plays its Group F opener against Morocco on Wednesday, a hurdle that the 2018 runner-up is expected to clear before facing Canada and then second-ranked Belgium and Kevin de Bruyne.
