Happy World Cup, everyone!

Team Croatia was (understandably) hyped while celebrating a much-needed goal against England in the semi-finals on Wednesday. In the midst of their victory charge, the team accidentally trampled a few unsuspecting photographers who were just trying to do their jobs.

The photographers kept on snapping though.

The incredibly sweet Croatian players apologized by helping the photographers to their feet, and much like an overbearing grandma during the holidays, smothering them in hugs and kisses. If they had more time, Team Croatia probably would have asked, "Did you eat?" before pinching the photographers' cheeks. 

Viewers agreed that the moment was one of the most wholesome things on television.

The Croatian players celebrating that goal, crashing into the photographers area, and then apologizing to the camera man and giving him a kiss on the head is the best moment of this World Cup.

Awesome that Vida just kissed the photographer that Croatia ended up piling on to.

And fellow journalists dreamed of being that photographer. 

Croatia won 2 -1 against England on Wednesday, dashing English dreams as Croatia advances to the finals.
