Croatia head coach Niko Kovac has a lot to be happy about. His side has just demolished Cameroon in their Group A FIFA World Cup match, and will play Mexico for a spot in the knockout stages. But all that is just semantics to the internet. The web has broken out in conversation about Kovac's similar looks to a few celebrites. Here are just a few of those:
