    I stopped watching because I just couldn't take it anymore. But... rooting for Croatia from afar, and without watching. Cool story for them.

    Be cool if they won. Be nice to have a new team win for once ... only 8 countries have ever won would be cool to see a new one

    Sucks for the Dutch and Italy, but 221 countries, someone has to sit one out...

    Croats: 7th in beer consumption, 6th in wine. We like our alcohol.

    in Kabul at our base, we had like 20-25 Croats stationed right next to us
    they used to stream satellite soccer somehow on a projecter onto the showers/bathroom wall outside, and I've never seen such diehard, crazy fans of any sport....

    And I lived in Germany at the time, so it wasn't like I only had American apathy to soccer to compare it to

    Good guys

    You’re American, not Croatian.

    Most people in England are happy with the result. Previous years we've had teams full of superstars like Beckham and Rooney and they've been completely shit. This time we entered lesser known players and they did the best we've done since 1990.

    Working in NYC, a tournament like this brings all nations together to watch games, get drunk, sing songs, it’s fun af. And no matter what the nation, NYC has them in numbers so for Local Croatians, this is amazing.

    Not going to lie, I’m still pretty gutted, but all the credit to Croatia, not sure there was a lot in it, but they were the better side and they handled the occasion better-and anyone who doesn’t love watching Modric play shouldn’t be watching football.

    I’ll be rooting for Croatia on Sunday, and not just because it will mean we can make bullshit claims about only losing to the eventual winners...
