In the match against Denmark, she did not join the VIP box in the stadium but rather she watched the game seated along with her fans! She earned massive praise and respect!
She was quoted saying:
“I wanted to showcase that I am a football fan, like everyone else; I wanted to support the team among other fans in the stands, I put on a shirt with national symbols, whereas the dress code in the VIP zone, which usually presupposes long gowns, wouldn’t have permitted such an outfit.”
She even flew economy class, ditching her VIP ticket! Yes, she flew with football fans from Zagreb to support her home team. The 50-year-old lady did wear a red formal suit but later took off her coat to show Croatia’s red and white check jersey.
