Liverpool star Dejan Lovren demands respect from critics following World Cup heroics

"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 previous year". I deserve this. I went through a lot of s*** and it's coming back. But you will find these problems for pretty much all the players in the world.

He wrote for the Irish Independent: "I give Lovren credit for rebuilding his Liverpool career after that and there is no doubt that the arrival of Virgil van Dijk in the January transfer window helped him to put in a better second half of the season, but I'm still not convinced he can relied upon every time he takes to the field".

Lovren was instrumental in helping Croatia come from behind against England on Wednesday to secure their place in Sunday's final with France.

"I really didn't understand these questions, always looking back to where I made some mistakes".

"After all we went through, we deserve to be here", he said.

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

Did The U.S. Threaten Ecuador Over A Breastfeeding Resolution?
The US directed its ire at Ecuador when the South American nation agreed to introduce the resolution. They also imply in their advertising that breastfeeding is what poor women do who don't know better.

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.

If Vrsaljko does not make it, one option for Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic will be to bring Vedran Corluka into central defence and push Domagoj Vida out to right-back. 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. I think definitely if you are in the final you are the two best teams in the world.

"I can imagine everybody is disappointed but it was still a fantastic tournament with one game to come".

"Of course I'm delighted for Dejan". It's impressive what they are doing. It's good to see.

"After 20 years, people will remember us, not only the '98 team. I'm happy for them of course".
