How dare those asshole Croatian hooligans ruin this game for their captain. How dare they. On this day! Heartless motherfuckers. His father was buried yesterday and this is how they repay him? By throwing fireworks at his face! I’m fucking furious!!!
Darijo Srna’s tears during the anthem was the most heartbreaking thing I’ve seen so far. I feel so sad for him, losing his father while he was away. I know what that feels like. And yet here he is, a few days later, leading his team again. Just amazing. Respect to him. And all my love and support goes out to him and his family.
