The Croatia goalkeeper has revealed the advice given to him from the midfielder which helped him save the defender's penalty

Croatia goalkeeper Danijel Subasic has revealed the advice Luka Modric gave to him before he saved Sergio Ramos’ penalty.

Spain went ahead through Alvaro Morata but were pegged back by Nikola Kalinic’s equaliser.

Vicente Del Bosque’s side had the chance to pull ahead once again after David Silva was brought down in the box but Ramos’ penalty was saved by Subasic.

Prior to the penalty being taken, Luka Modric was seen passing a message to Darijo Srna, who then spoke to Subasic before he saved Ramos’ effort.

“Penalties are a lottery,” said Subasic. “The guy from Czech Republic [Tomas Necid] smashed the ball well, this time I waited a little and made good save.

“Luka Modric send a message through Srna to wait for Ramos and that he will shoot to my right side. And that’s what happened.”

Croatia then secured victory with Ivan Perisic’s late effort, which means Spain have finished second in Group D behind Ante Cacic’s side.
