Croatia qualified for the World Cup in Brazil next summer by beating Iceland, 2-0, and celebrations were much deserved. Except, celebrating by leading a pro-Nazi chant isn't a good idea or sensible thing to do, but defender Josip Simunic hasn't always been a sensible person.
According to reports, Simunic took to the microphone after Croatia's victory and started the war call used by the Croatian pro-Nazi regime that ruled the state during World War II. The same chant is often accompanied by a Nazi salute and Croatian fans have been accused of using it in the past and Fifa and Uefa fined the Croatian Football Association because of it.
Simunic, who was born in Australia, responded to the criticism by saying: "Some people have to learn some history. I'm not afraid. I did nothing wrong. I'm supporting my Croatia, my homeland. If someone has something against it, that's their problem."
As of right now Fifa has not responded.
Simunic is probably best known as the player who was sent off for receiving three yellow cards and being sent off in a match against Australia (where he was born and grew up!) in the 2006 World Cup, which is a feat because players are ejected after two yellow cards int he same match. So he's not the brightest player on earth by any stretch.
