They make good love in Croatia - Lovren calls for respect

They make good love in Croatia - Lovren calls for respect

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.

Lovren will be hoping he can avoid the same fate as Henry by leading Croatia to World Cup victory against France this Sunday.

"Since I came in, maybe Dejan made three or four mistakes, two of them in the Tottenham game, maybe one in a Champions League game a year ago".

Although pinpointed as a weak link for Liverpool this season, the former Southampton and Lyon man helped the Reds to the Champions League final, where they were beaten by Real Madrid, but another shot at glory presents itself on Sunday in the World Cup final.

"But I like to challenge these strikers and to show to everyone that I'm one of the best defenders".

"This is something we'll never forget". People are crying in our country.

"We will never forget this".

Premier League giants Manchester United are reportedly ready to bid £50 million (R873 million) for an England global who had an outstanding 2018 FIFA World Cup campaign. And it Is a special history when you look back and see that three times in the knock out stages we have played 120 minutes and yet we still had fresher legs than that England team.

"We've had this weight on our shoulders for 20 years".

"It was quite tough first half, we couldn't control the ball and they had good chances" he admitted.

Dalic refused to confirm whether right back Sime Vrsaljko would miss the game, after the Atletico Madrid player came off in extra time against Russian Federation.

"I think people should recognise that I am also one of the best defenders in the world and not just talk nonsense", Lovren said in the UK's Liverpool Echo.
