    -- Croatian defender Josip Simunic, whom FIFA suspended for 10 games -- meaning he'll miss the World Cup -- for taking the microphone after Croatia qualified by beating Iceland and igniting a call-and-response chant of "For the Homeland!” and “Ready!," a chant made infamous by Croatia's fascist regime in World War II.
