Croatia felt aggrieved by the refereeing in the World Cup opener against Brazil, and one WAG—Anita Lovren, wife of Southampton's Dejan Lovren—took it to the next level on Instagram.

Anita uploaded an image of referee Yuichi Nishimura in a Brazil shirt:

The aspect on the right refers to a decision Nishimura made not to allow Ivan Perisic's goal. Julio Cesar fell as he went to grab the ball and Ivica Olic was penalised, but he kept his hands low and did not appear to do anything other than go for the ball.

The penalty was given against Lovren himself, so you can understand Anita's frustration.

Lovren, speaking after the game, was disparaging about the penalty:

I spoke to Croatia defender Dejan Lovren last night. He said 'If it is like this, then we can give the World Cup directly to Brazil.'
