Croatian Montrealers wear checkers to watch team beat Canada in World Cup

While most bars, living rooms and coffee shops in Montreal were packed Sunday with Canada fans, the Saint-Nicholas Tavelic Catholic Church in the Town of Montreal was awash in checkers. Marko Piperković was among the over 100 Croatian Montrealers decked out in his country's iconic colours, cheering on Mateo Kovacic, Marcelo Brozovic, and the country's talisman and arguably the best Croatian player ever: Luka Modric.
