New Tottenham signing Luka Modric has slammed the quality of England's players.

The Croatia midfielder barked: "The English aren't that dangerous. They look more powerful on TV than in the flesh.

"We had a big impression of them, but it changed when we saw them face to face on the pitch and the competition with the ball started.

"Our 3-2 win at Wembley was a magnificent confirmation of our values. England will remember us for next time. We play them again in the 2010 World Cup qualifying group and even the great Fabio Capello won't be of great help."
