The lone fan wearing a Croatia jersey, who watched with a co-worker donning an England shirt, said there was a great atmosphere in the room during the match.
UPDATE: July 11, 2018, 4:39 p.m. EDT It's ultimately heartbreak for England, who lost 2-1, so here's hoping for more beers to drown the sorrows.
The BBC says one of the two videos in which Vida appeared was posted online after Croatia beat host Russian Federation for the right to play in the semi-final against England. "We haven't said our last word, there is still one more game to go".
Croatia defeated England 2-1 thanks to Mario Mandzukic's winning goal in extra time. "Nobody gave up", said Dalic, whose team have played the equivalent of one match more than the French.
A nation tormented by poor showings in the biggest events finally put together a spirited run that looked poised for a shot at World Cup glory.
HNS also said that Vukojevic and Vida apologised for their statements, saying they were not meant to be political messages but "unfortunately left room for such interpretations".
However, FIFA says the sentence is not final because the former Dinamo Zagreb director general is appealing to a higher court.
"I don't think England could go on to win the World Cup, I think France and Belgium have got too much".
"All of my friends are England supporters and, seeing as I'm likely the only Croatian they know, they've all called me out to wish me good luck for the semi-final!" "So I chose to build a pub", Lewis said.
"The players and the squad, everybody involved in the World Cup, have a reason to come back home with pride after giving everything and making the country proud". Croatia was 6/4. Odds Shark had France as -210 to win the final and Croatia +185.
