geographical ignorance

Overheard on the train this morning.

Tall, feckless youth: "Did you see the football? Fucking qualified for the World Cup!"
Short, feckless companion: "Did we?"
Tall youth: "Yeeeah. Thrashed Croatia. 5-1."
Short companion. "Who are Croatia?".

How do you answer that?

Wow, that's sad... said...

He might've been saying;

"yeah, who are Croatia?!"

As in - they were rubbish...

But possibly he is a bit thick, though I bet he still gets an A* in his Geography A Level.
