Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp backs Dejan Lovren after Croatia World Cup run

Lovren Kane

Subasic suffered a tight hamstring towards the end of Croatia's quarter-final win over hosts Russian Federation and was unable to take goal-kicks before the tie went to penalties.

Dejan Lovren answered his critics for as Croatia beat England.

He had been irritated on the eve of the game by references to his substitution after 31 minutes of a 4-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur back in October, when two...

Reaching the final caps a hugely impressive 2018 for Lovren, who came through a hard run of form for Liverpool to play a key part in reaching the UEFA Champions League final in May. People are crying. It's something historical for us.

"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 past year".

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

"This is something we will never forget".

"We will never forget this". We will never forget this.

Lovren says he remembers his mum took him and they went to the basement and can't remember how long they sat there. We have come back after 20 years to the semis and we deserve it.

"I'm completely happy. I'm happy that he used the little advice we gave him in the last few years in a very good way".

"It was tough first half". Then in extra-time, we showed we still had the energy to play our game.

He added: "Modric is the best middle three player in the world and if we win this World Cup, he deserves the Ballon d'Or".

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.

Lovren also called for Croatia team-mate Luka Modric to receive the highest individual award in world football, the Ballon d'Or.
