Croatia played Ireland today in their first match of Euro 2012. While watching, some amused themselves with geographical snark.

Croatia won the match!

Croatia finish off the Irish 3-1. Lots to talk about after that one. We'll do so on the #Whitecapsfc prematch show. #Euro2012

Kudos, Croatia! A win and a first time trending topic all in one day.

This business cleverly joins in on the hashtag action to pimp its services.
