Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic gave her United States counterpart Donald Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May Croatia jerseys on Wednesday ahead of the Soccer World Cup semi-final against England.

After Kieran Trippier opened the scoring in England's World Cup semifinal match against Croatia, the 30,000-plus fans at London's Hyde Park tossed so much beer into the air.

Team mate Mario Mandzukic then struck in the 109th minute to complete their third straight comeback win. Charlie Clarke tweeted: "England needs to get to the semi finals more often. our office have all sacked off work and now we're at the pub amazing" and Shona Fran wrote: "Banked out from work 5 hours early, GET ME TO THE PUB ENGLAND". "We started slowly today but we showed our character and again came from a goal behind just like we did in the previous knockout rounds". Croatia will look to get over the historical hump of never winning, while the French will look to move past recent failures like their loss to Portugal in their home country during the last match of the 2016 Euro Cup.


The goal proved decisive as Croatia ran out 2-1 winners after extra time, and the celebrations in its wake swept up one unlucky photographer pitchside.

Croatia looked vulnerable from set-pieces against Russian Federation, conceding the equaliser in extra-time via a set-play, so this is an area England can exploit.

Prime Minister Theresa May said: "Gareth Southgate and the boys have done a fantastic job and I'm sure that they're going to go on to do well and I wish them all the very best of luck tonight". "We worked hard defensively, we needed to take advantage a bit more in the counter-attacks but congratulations to my players and my staff", he said, according to Reuters. "God willing, we will be world champions".
