PIC: Croatian hooligans posted their master plan on Facebook before Czech Republic game
If only Uefa had liked their page, they would have seen this coming.
A group of Croatian ultras brought Friday's game against the Czech Republic to a halt. Croatia were heading towards a 2-1 win with the clock winding down when a number of flares were thrown onto the field, with one exploding in the face of an unfortunate steward who was trying to clear the pitch.
In hindsight, the incident proved costly to the Croatian team, who pleaded for calm from their supporters, and went on to drop two points after conceding a penalty in added time.
Whatever way you look at it, the scenes were inexcusable, but this does shine some light on the incident https://t.co/PsiB4Ol1Vo

It turns out the group responsible for disrupting the match actually gave away their plans on social media before the game even kicked off.
A screenshot has emerged on Reddit showing that the hooligans responsible for the disruption had posted their plans two hours before kick-off. Torcida Split 1950 posted a blueprint of the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard showing the location of the ultra groups and what they would attempt. You can check it out below.
