Modric is the world's best number 10 – Arbeloa
Croatia star Luka Modric is the world's best number 10, according to his former Real Madrid team-mate Alvaro Arbeloa.
Modric starred to lead his nation to a 3-0 win over Argentina at the World Cup Thursday.
The superstar midfielder scored with a spectacular long-range effort to double Croatia's lead in the Group D clash, in which Argentina's number 10 Lionel Messi struggled.
Arbeloa – who spent seven seasons at Madrid – believes Modric is the world's best number 10.
"The best 10 in the world: @lukamodric10," Arbeloa wrote on Twitter, alongside an image of the Madrid midfielder.
