So /that's/ why the Croats won yesterday

"MOSCOW, November 22 (RIA Novosti) - A LUKoil vice-president announced on Thursday that he would keep his promise to give Mercedes cars to Croatian players after the Balkan side beat England 3-2 at Wembley". Source

Or possibly not:

"However, Ivica Olic, formerly of CSKA, and the scorer of Croatia's second goal, rejected suggestions that this or any other undisclosed financial incentives offered by Russian businessmen contributed to the team's performance".

Good job he specified 'car' as otherwise the Croats might be in line for a van. It remains to be seen whether they will be getting keys to A-Class Mercs, or something further up the automotive food chain.
