In this Nov. 19, 2013 file picture Croatia's defender Josip Simunic, left, is challenged by Iceland's Alfred Finnbogason during their World Cup qualifying playoff second leg soccer match against Iceland, in Zagreb, Croatia. Croatia's World Cup qualification celebrations have been marred by apparent pro-Nazi chants by fans and defender Josip Simunic. Croatia qualified for the World Cup with a 2-0 win over Iceland on Tuesday. Video footage shows Simunic taking a microphone to the field after the match and shouting to the fans: "For the homeland!" The fans respond: "Ready!" That was the war call used by the Croatian pro-Nazi puppet regime that ruled the state during World War II when tens of thousands Jews, Serbs and others perished in concentration camps. The Australian-born Simunic defended his action, saying "some people have to learn some history." (AP Photo/Darko Bandic)
