Residents in Biloxi reacting to Croatia in World Cup

Although the U.S Men’s team is out of the World Cup, many people are still tuning in and some in Biloxi are heavily rooting for Team Croatia.

Last Friday, Croatia played an intense match against Brazil in order to advance to the semi-finals.

The game was tied at one at the end of regulation and the score came down to penalty kicks where Croatia came out on top 4-2.

Croatia’s success is bringing life and excitement to many, including Biloxi Mayor FoFo Gilich.

His family was in Croatia in 2018 when they worked their way into the final World Cup game. Mayor Gilich said, “We have a tremendous Croatian community and organization and we’ll be meeting tomorrow to hopefully pull Croatia through the semi-finals into the actual finals. We’re real hopeful and we’ll be together.”

Croatia will play Argentina in the semi-finals tomorrow at 1 p.m. on WXXV Fox 25.
