We know what you’re thinking. Isn’t it hilarious how that row of healthy energy drinks looks like it could be a row of beer cans? Well wipe that smirk off your face and replace it with an even wider one because they are cans of beer. Sitting in front of two athletes preparing to discuss their upcoming participation in a major International football tournament.
It could be part of some wider ad campaign we’re not privy to. That might explain why Manchester United target Luka Modric and Niko Kranjcar look as though they’ve just woken up on a park bench after a night on methylated spirits.
This is what transpired at today’s press conference with the Croatian team. Spurs star Modric and his now ex-Spurs team-mate Kranjcar gave their thoughts on Euro 2012 and their opening game with Ireland in front of rows of beer cans. Strategically placed there for commercial and comedic purposes. Good work Ožujsko beer company people.
We haven’t seen that kind of can configuration since our student days but back then our cans were generally empty. Looking at the dishevelled heads on this pair maybe theirs are too.
It’s probably not going to matter with Kranjcar but we could do with Modric struggling not to vomit on himself when Croatia and Ireland play on Sunday night.
