President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic to be Croatia's biggest fan in Moscow

By  Jul 13, 2018

The Croatian President, Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic, will cheer again for Croatian team in the finals of the World Cup in Moscow – HRT reports.

This are great news, especially if you remember her passionate cheering on the match against Russia – she even went viral because of her dance of joy! Not to mention that she even went to the dressing room of the players (who can blame her?) and has been one of the biggest supporters of Croatian team.

During semi-finals (Croatia-England), she was at the dinner with NATO leaders and couldn't watch the game, but was informed about the score all the time – HRT writes.

- When Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg gave me the word at that point, Jean-Claude Juncker and Donald Tusk (the President of the Commission and the President of the European Council) have shown me that it was a tie, which deconcentrated me a bit at the start of my speech. After dinner together with President Macron, I looked at the last few minutes of the last extension. He congratulated me, hugged and we agreed to see on Sunday in Moscow - the president said.

She announced that she will follow the match in the Croatian jersey and that he slightly provoked Macron to appear in national colors, not in suit.

-I told him that people in Croatia wonder who is the bigger fan – me or him, so we will have to prove ourselves in Moscow - she said.

She expressed hope that the optimism that flooded the country because of the historical success of football players could flow to other parts of social life and economy – it’s written by HRT.
