Croatia needed a touch of Luka Modric magic to beat Turkey 1-0 in their Euro 2016 Group D opener Sunday, gaining a measure of revenge after their bitter quarterfinal elimination by the same opponents at Euro 2008 .Inspirational playmaker Modric put Croatia in front with a fine volley from 25 meters that bounced in front of diving Turkey goalkeeper Volkan Babacan shortly before halftime of a tense affair at Parc des Princes.Turkey looked nervous in the opening stages and Croatia dictated the pace, with Modric and Ivan Rakitic pulling the strings in midfield.The game was lively but with no clear chance for either side until Croatia midfielder Milan Badelj offered the first shot on target with a volley from 20 meters that failed to surprise Babacan.
