She said;

“I wanted to showcase that I am a football fan, like everyone else; I wanted to support the team among other fans in the stands.

I put on a shirt with national symbols, whereas the dress code in the VIP zone, which usually presupposes long gowns, wouldn’t have permitted such an outfit.”

After the final whistle, which signaled Croatia’s win over Denmark, she entered the team’s changing room to give them a heartfelt hug. She congratulated the footballers and the lead coach on their triumph.
