Croatia defender says country 'makes good love'

Jordan Henderson and Dejan Lovren

Dejan Lovren says people should respect him as "one of the best defenders in the world" having helped Croatia to the World Cup final and Liverpool to the final of the Champions League. He can still improve, 100 per cent.

"He played a fantastic tournament so far".

Lovren, 29, had been irked before the clash against England by questions of how he would deal with Harry Kane after the Tottenham Hotspur forward gave him the runaround in a 4-1 win for the north London side against Liverpool last October.

His disappointment for Trent Alexander-Arnold, Jordan Henderson and fans of the country he calls home at the moment sat alongside satisfaction in seeing Lovren reach the pinnacle of the global game.

Lovren showed grace by saying that he felt sorry for teammate Jordan Henderson, "I am a little bit disappointed for my team-mate [Jordan Henderson] because he also deserved to be in the final".

FIFA Ask Broadcasters To Reduce Shots Of Attractive Female Fans
The victims had included Russian women harassed by fans and television reporters who had been accosted while broadcasting. "We've done it with our host broadcast services".

"It was a very intense game, how a semi-final should be".

They had previously defeated Denmark and hosts Russian Federation on penalties, becoming the first team ever to advance to the final by winning three consecutive extra time games. Now there is only one game left to make it forever. England controlled the game more or less, Croatia looked exhausted in that part of the game - and then they scored a goal and got a real push.

Oblak has established himself as one of the world's very best goalkeepers during his four years with Atlético Madrid and the Slovenian global would represent a major summer coup for Liverpool, if a deal can be struck. "I wish we could both be in the final for that game but there is only one victor". It's impressive what they are doing.

Several positions remain problematic for the Reds and if they are serious about toppling current champions Manchester City next season they must ensure that the right players are added to the squad this summer. It's good to see. We beat our record from 20 years ago.
