Football teams from Belgium, Croatia, France and the UK will meet in the semifinals to determine who will become with World Cup's champion.

NATO's official Twitter account has published a video hailing all the semifinalists, stressing the fact that all of them represent NATO member states. The post was published after the Russian national team lost to Croatia in a quarterfinal match.

As a result of tough quarterfinal matches, which also featured Russia, Uruguay, Brazil and Sweden, teams from Belgium, Croatia, France and the UK have made it to the semifinal stage of the tournament.

Many Twitter users found NATO's comment weird, suggesting that football teams are unlikely to appreciate its attempts to leverage their success.

Some of them noticed that NATO's logic was a bit flawed.

Other twitterians branded the video inappropriate since the sport has nothing to do with politics and thus NATO.

Some just openly mocked NATO's logic.
