PARIS. – Paris was divided into three parts on Sunday: Those who were going to go to the Euro 2016 match between Turkey and Croatia; those who wanted to go, but could not; and those who did not want to go. The second was the largest group.

Turks have a fairly large community in France. In addition, many had arrived from Turkey. But there are a lot of Croatians, too. 

History recalls six heavy wars when the Kingdom of Croatia and the Ottoman Empire had battled one another. 

From sea to sea roaming with Ucom

Starting from September 15, use internet for 39 drams per megabit and incoming calls for 150 drams per minute in the mentioned seaside resorts. The entire list of countries here.

 

And I, for may part, decided to have a photo from this match, and naturally, against the backdrop of the tricolor national flag Armenia. 

The Croatians, who were asking me questions, were finally asking me where I was from. And when I was responding “Armenia,” they were becoming so delighted that I was starting to think about the Armenian community in Croatia, our similarities in history, and ultimately, about Kim Kardashian, again. 

The Croatians beat the Turks 1-0

All cafés in Paris were filled with football fans.

The Croatians celebrated their victory in cafés.

Turks went to the Eiffel Tower.

I don’t know what the Ukrainians were doing.

The Albanians climbed the tower and waved their flag.

Ever since the start of Euro 2016, I was wondering where Zinedine Zidane is. It turns out, however, that he had gone to India for the first time in his life.

In the evening, Poland defeated Northern Ireland, and Germany beat Ukraine.

Ten minutes after the end of the last Euro 2016 game of the day, the Eiffel Tower is lit in the colors of the flag of the country whose fans have voted the most on Twitter.

The Turks were the most “active” on Sunday, and therefore the tower turned red with a star and crescent.
