Did you know that Croatia invests more money in its youth sports than any other country in the world? It is part of the country’s cultural pride to do so.
This may not be such a difficult feat to afford, considering Croatia is such a small country. it looks like they even have some extra cash to invest in writing offensive signs to diss the competition. Despite its small size, it has one of the best national soccer teams in the world and has given a lot of trouble to big-name teams like Germany, Brazil, and England.
Braces, Mugs, and the Moves Like Jagger
These two boys are giving off so many mixed messages. First of all, why are they holding up a Germany poster that says "Let's Go Germany" if they are wearing Brazilian jerseys?
Secondly, Why is the man on the sign the frontman of the British rock band rolling stones? And last but not least, how would Jagger feel if he knew these two guys were disparaging his name with such confusion? Brazil ended up getting crushed that day, and that poster probably ended up on the floor.
The 1994 World Cup hosted by Sweden seems to be a complete whirlpool of confusion. Fans here are holding up American flags in the background. Somewhere in between, there is a man holding what seems to be an Argentinian flag.
In the front, there's a dude in a sombrero, and the man with his shirt tucked in seems to have a very deep diss against the US soccer fans. Meanwhile, this is a game between Sweden and Cameroon. It's like looking at a (bad) Atlas.
Five People With a Story to Tell
The five people in this photo, taken during a game between Aston Villa and Newcastle on August 23rd, 2014, each have their own story to tell. The man on the left is holding the flag nice and high and gazing even higher into the stadium ceiling.
The man beside him, though, looks like he is the one holding it up with a somewhat careless look on his face. The two dudes on the right both look like they were dropped there from another planet and have no clue where they are and why they are stuck holding these flags.
You know you're a fan when you have laminated your sign for either future use or to just save it so your children can inherit it one day. This young girl seems to be making quite a statement. She's got a long life ahead of her, and Rooney is only human.
He's bound to disappoint, and she may find herself wanting to back out on her promise to him. The little boy on the right seems to be captivated as well, yet the man on the left looks like he has not made a promise since birth.
