Everyone now is rooting for Croatia. We can't have the Frogs winning the title. That would be just shameful.  :(

I am very surprised Russia hasn't won, perhaps they'll do what the Women's netballers down here, do when they lose, celebrate as though they'd won anyway, saying thing like "Victorious"....

Rubbing it in:

Shortly after Croatia defeated Russia on penalties in the quarter finals, defender Domagoj Vida and coach Ognjen Vukojevic - who have each played for FC Dynamo Kiev - dedicated their win to Ukraine on YouTube from their changing room.

Ukrainian TV executive Oleksandr Tkachenko praised the players on Facebook, saying it was "nice they stopped the hosts of this strange World Cup".

Fifa reviewed the video and issued a warning to the players. Ognjen Vukojevic was fined $15,000 (£11,360) and sent home by Croatia.

Then Vida appeared to do the same thing again. He has since apologised in a live interview with Rossiya 24 state television after the semi-final.
