After attending his father's funeral earlier in the week, Croatia captain Darijo Srna provided the most emotional moment of Euro 2016 so far as the Croatian national anthem reduced him to tears.

Srna said earlier in the week that he would continue to play in the tournament on his father's wishes, and deserves tremendous respect for leading his country out against the Czech Republic considering what he has dealt with. (via Indian Express)

It is a very difficult moment for me and my family and after talking to them, I decided to return to France.

It was my father’s last wish. He invested everything he had in my career and I wouldn’t be here if it hadn’t been for him.

As the camera got to the captain during Croatia's anthem, it was clear to see how much his father meant to him.
