"It's only good to see females interested in football and she is not a bad looking president, back home we are used to old presidents, its good to use, even the French President, very young man, brought luck to the team".
Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic gestures beside French President Emmanuel Macron (R) during the trophy ceremony at the end of the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup final football match between France and Croatia at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on July 15, 2018.
After an enthralling finish to the World Cup in Russia, President Vladimir Putin announced that foreign visitors holding the "fan id" could have visa-free entry to the Russian Federation until the end of 2018.
Since it is bound to be hot in Qatar, where temperatures can soar to 45 degrees, the World Cup matches have been moved to November and December 2022.
Grabar-Kitarovic steered clear of sensitive issues, such as the pro-Ukrainian sentiment among some Croatian soccer players at the World Cup that has angered the tournament's Russian hosts.
In a dramatic match on Sunday night in Moscow, France won 4-2.
Grabar-Kitarovic social media handles are unverified, which is unlike so many other leaders.
According to Grubisic's data, there were 25% more mentions of the Croatian president than the Croatian captain. "We are proud of what we did for fans of this wonderful sport".
She presented the shirts to Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump, and both of them coincidentally had the number 9 on them.
She was also spotted partying with Luka Modric and his men in the dressing room after Croatia cleared the quarter-final hurdle earlier this month.
The leaders congratulated the team on the victory, and the football team of France in the answer has dedicated a chant to Putin.
