Croatia coach Slaven Bilic described young playmaker Luka Modric as the best player in Europe following his side´s shock Euro 2008 win over Germany - but he insists they are no one-man team.

Modric followed up his match-winning penalty against Austria on Sunday with a man-of-the-match performance against Germany on Thursday, helping Croatia to record a 2-1 victory that, combined with Austria´s 1-1 draw with Poland, saw them progress to the quarter-finals.

"Luka is a star even without this tournament, I keep saying to him every day that he is the best player in Europe, but he is not the only great player on our team," Bilic said after the match in Klagenfurt.
