Modric scores early penalty to give Croatia 1-0 win over Austria at Euro 2008

Luka Modric scored from the penalty spot Sunday to give Croatia a 1-0 win over co-host Austria at the European Championship.
Modric put his team ahead in the fourth minute of the Group B match after Rene Aufhauser brought down Ivica Olic in the area. Modric and Olic combined down the left wing from a throw-in and took the ball into the box before Aufhauser ran across and knocked down Olic as he went past. Dutch referee Pieter Vink awarded the penalty and Austria defender Emanuel Pogatetz was then given a yellow card for protesting.
With goalkeeper Juergen Macho diving to his right, Modric sent the ball low and into the middle of the net.
