Croatia will be cheered on in their first knock out round match against Denmark by the President, Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic.
The Croatian President has travelled to Russia for the World Cup game and has uploaded a photo onto her Facebook account from the plane. She is posing on the plane with a number of other supporters who are making their way to the game. Around 15,000 Croatians are estimated to have bought tickets for the match tonight.
“Great atmosphere from the early morning. Let’s go for a win,” commented Grabar-Kitarovic on her social media site. The President’s office had earlier commented that she is going to the match in Russia on a private arrangement and that she will cover all the costs of the trip.
