Croatia’s On Fire!

A team of firefighters in Croatia were watching their side face the hosts in a Quarter-Final penalty-shootout on Sunday afternoon until duty called.

The lads were congregated around the telly at the station and were all waiting eagerly for Rakatic to place his penalty and secure a spot in the Semi-Finals. Moments before the Barca star stepped up for his spot-kick, the alarm sounded for an emergency. Within seconds the squad were kitted up and out of the door within seconds.

Not one looked back to see the fate of their team's shootout. A lot of respect for this group of men and a place in the last four of the world was their reward. There were a few left in the station who lingered around and they were ecstatic when Rakatic converted his penalty.
