Modric scores early to give Croatia 1-0 halftime lead over Euro 2008 co-host Austria

Luka Modric scored from an early penalty kick Sunday to give Croatia a 1-0 lead over Austria at halftime of the opening Group B match at the European Championship.
Modric put his team ahead in the fourth minute after Rene Aufhauser had brought down Ivica Olic in the area.
Croatia's Darijo Srna had another chance with a free kick that went past the post, and Mladen Petric, alone on the left side of the area, later shot way off target.
Austria struggled to put together attacks of its own, going closest through a header by Sebastian Proedl, but improved as the match progressed.
