"I've learned a little from Rafa and Crouchy," Modric told the Spurs website.
"Rafa has scored a lot of goals from Crouchy in those areas and I expected Crouchy to win the ball and flick it towards me.
"I then beat one player with a dummy and was able to score.
"I'm very happy because it's my first goal in the Champions League and that means a lot. It's a great feeling."
