The Croatian football side has popped into to visit the current Archbishop of Zagreb, Josip Bozanić, on the eve of their departure from Croatia for Brazil…
“When you put your hands on your heart, let it be known that the whole of Croatia is with you. Everyone who is in Brazil are already winners. When you get back we could visit Pope Francis together,” said the Croatian Cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church to the squad, who was presented with a Croatian jersey with his name and the number 10 on the back.
