May get Croatian jerseys ahead of England World Cup semi

Croatian President Kolinda Grabar Kitarovic gave her US counterpart Donald Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May Croatia jerseys Wednesday ahead of the World Cup semi final against England ## ## .

The president posted photographs on her Twitter account showing her with Trump and May holding red and white jerseys bearing their respective names in meetings at a NATO summit in Brussels.

After a dramatic win on penalties against hosts Russia, Croatia has repeated the success of the 1998 team which reached the semi finals in the country’s first World Cup as an independent nation.
