Home, to London? Are you kidding me? Are you serious when you say that! The World Cup trophy is on its way to Paris – or to Zagreb! Croatian national holiday in Moscow and throughout Europe after the finals, after the 2-1 against deeply disappointed Englishman. Men of the evening were Mario Mandžukićthat FC Bayern might have kept – and AFP photographer Yuri Cortezwho scored the Croatian jubilation at the winning goal, scoring the most legendary images of his career. Already the world sports photos 2018!

And the English? We leave the conclusion to the big one Stephen Fry, And Oasiswho said goodbye to the Three Lions at the Lushniki Stadium with “Do not look back in Anger”. And Prime Minister Theresa Maythat should hold the semi-final as usual for a very decent compromise. Oh, England, it’s howling with you. 😥🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

Sad. Proud. Annoyed. Relieved. Disappointed. Unsurprised. Impressed. Vexed. Gutted. Elated. Deflated. Despondent. Encouraged. Defeated. Defiant. Broken. Resilient. Inspired. Silly. All those things #ENGvCRO

Twentythree Lions

“Thank you England”, “We lived the dream” and “Now we have 23 lions” – quite a lot more than Dieter BohlenLyric does not catch the English newspapers this morning any more. The English association tweets: “Thank you. We hope we made you proud.” Oh yes, you did.


You did not proud, #ENG.

Fiery Croats

And Croatia? On the way to the final. And we hope that the great Croatian firefighters, who were in the quarterfinals against Russia shortly before the decision to cancel, this time could see to the end!

Ako netko slučajno nije znao, Rijeka se potrudila da svi saznaju koji je bio rezultat polufinalne utakmice između Hrvatske i Engleske.

I da pritom svi sretnu stignu svojim domovima … Večer za pamćenje, bravo Rijeka, bravo @HNS_CFF

WHEN DUTY CALLS: Croatian firefighters were desperate to see the end of their team’s match against Russia in the World Cup quarterfinals-but when a call came in, they leapt into action.

Croatia won seconds later.

Our good old age Mats Hummels meanwhile, was in London to celebrate the finals with the English. Shit, gone wrong again. It should not be 2018, with Germany and the final. Oh, king Roger Federer then lost too. Stupid year, Mats.
