DP Ruto torn between France and Croatia – Kenyans hilariously 'help' him decide

Deputy President William Ruto is a passionate football fan, no doubt about it.

As the 2018 World Cup in Russia prepares to close its curtains on Sunday, everyone who has followed the mesmerising tournament from the start is either settled on France or Croatia.

Le Bleus and ‘Vatreni’ earned spots in the final after taking out Belgium and England respectively.

A second-half header from Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti was enough to knock out Roberto Martinez’s men while a Mario Mandukic strike deep into extra time sealed a spot in the last two for Zlatko Dalic’s side.

DP Ruto, through a post on his Twitter handle, declared his support for the presumed ‘underdog’ Croatia but seemed torn on who to really support.

“Torn between France,the only African team in the finals, and Croatia, my favourite & underdog I guess Croatia is my team for finals! Meanwhile congrats brits for a good show. Brexit it was!” wrote the DP.

Kenyans, as usual, took the opportunity to ‘help’ the DP choose a team with savage responses. Here’s a sample:
