A well-recognized man is celebrating Croatia’s big victory.
Mayor FoFo Gilich, who carries Croatian blood, says he is very proud of his team who was the underdog in today’s game.
Mayor Gilich was in Croatia last week. He says the excitement is running high. “I guess it grows on you. We watched that one game right on the seaside on the deck, and just the excitement. It was more than a Super Bowl. It was just terrific. It infects you! So, we are really excited about where we are, win or lose next week, it’s an amazing story.”
Croatia will face off against France in the World Cup Finals this Sunday. Mayor Gilich says a big watch party will be held at the Slavic Lodge in Biloxi.
