Kenyans on social media are happy that Croatia thrashed England at the World Cup semi-finals on Wednesday, but this is partly because of the support the country offered after the Garissa University terror attack.

Three years after al Shabaab killed 147 people on April 2, 2015, students of Zagreb University in Croatia lay on a ground on which ‘Kenya’ was written in honour of the victims.

After the country’s 2-1 victory, some Kenyans noted the “great support” that Kenya was offered while others praised President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic for being the number one supporter of the team while others

In a tweet,¬†Immigration boss Gordon Kihalangwa said: “I remember Croatia very well. They stood with us during the Garissa terror attack. I wish them all the best.”

Croatia will face France in the World Cup final on Sunday.

Using hash tag #TeamCroatia, Lizz Ntonjira-Mutum also noted that the students took time to mourn with Kenya. She is IBM’s Communication Manager for¬†Central, East and West Africa.
