President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic Gives Jerseys to Theresa May, D

Croatia President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic was seen cheering her team in the Semi Finals of FIFA World Cup 2018, she was wearing the official jersey of the Croatia football team.

He said: "People were talking.English journalists, pundits from television, they underestimated Croatia tonight and that was a huge mistake". The Croatia President congratulated the team and her enthusiasm at watching her team emerge successful is unbeatable.

(Luka) Modric and (Ivan) Rakitic pressed their backline and we had the ball possession.

As Croatia advanced to the FIFA World Cup final for the first time in history, Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović, its first-ever woman President won many hearts worldwide for her enthusiasm during her country's matches. But we showed again that we we not exhausted, we dominated the game physically, mentally, in all aspects.

"We were motivated and what I told these players before the game was "there's no pressure, no nerves, don't lose your head - you've reached the semi-final, be proud and enjoy your football".

Midfielder Modric, perhaps the finest player in this current Croatia team, spent four years in England with Tottenham prior to joining Real Madrid in 2012.

The criminal case hasn't affected Croatia's progress to its first World Cup semifinal in 20 years, despite Modric being charged with perjury in March.

"We showed again we were not exhausted", he said. "They are a top-drawer team with fantastic players".

It stayed level at 90 minutes, meaning Croatia faced extra time for the third successive game, having got past Denmark and Russian Federation on penalties.

It was a similar story in the last 16 against Denmark and, on the back of those two gruelling encounters, they must prepare for an England side that beat Sweden in 90 minutes.

UEFA said Wednesday it is awaiting developments to assess Vrbanovic's role as a member of European soccer's committee overseeing national team competitions.
