Croatia and Turkey kicked off Matchday 3 of the Euro 2016 tournament under a rainy sky in Paris.

But the poor weather didn’t stop Luka Modric from scoring one of the top goals of the competition late in the first half to give his Croatian team the 1-0 lead.

The other top players are going to have to step up their game if they want to surpass Modric for top goal of the tournament. And it’s only day three.

The goal ended up being the only one in the game as Croatia won 1-0.
