In the Doodle of Croatia people appear playing football in the sea and several historical monuments of the country, like the walls of Dubrovnik and the Arena of Pula. For the artist Vedran Klemens, the illustration aims to show the beauty of the country in the summer and, at the same time, remind everyone of the captivating joy of the game.

The illustration shows a football match between three lions, who are a nickname for the English team. In the figure there are also people of all types, especially some with umbrellas, in the crowd. The artist Celyn Brazier was inspired by the mobilization that sport causes in the population. "The English national event par excellence is full of emotion, frustration and tragedy in equal measure."
