Croatia: Joe Simunic defends ‘pro-Nazi celebrations’ after World Cup play

Croatia’s Joe Simunic has defended his use of ‘pro-Nazi’ celebrations in the aftermath of his country’s World Cup 2014 qualification.


Video footage shows Australian-born Simunic taking a microphone to the field after the match and shouting to the fans: ‘For the homeland!’ The fans respond: ‘Ready!’

That was the war call used by Ustashas, the Croatian pro-Nazi puppet regime that ruled the state during World War II when tens of thousands Jews, Serbs and others perished in concentration camps.
