Liverpool legend Aldridge branded Lovren 'accident waiting to happen' before Croatia triumph

Liverpool legend Aldridge branded Lovren 'accident waiting to happen' before Croatia triumph

Lovren, who has endured hard times for club and country in recent years, was happy to claim a personal validation, too. "After everything that's been said before the game, we showed our character and that we deserve to be in the final".

Less than two months after lining up for Liverpool in the Champions League final, he is now heading for the biggest match in global football.

The signing of a world class goalkeeper remains the primary target for Liverpool this summer, particularly following Loris Karius' high profile mistakes in the Champions League final at the end of May.

Captain Luka Modric was again crucial for Croatia, and Lovren said the Real Madrid midfielder should win the Ballon d'Or if he leads his country to World Cup glory, per beIN Sports (via Bairner): "Modric is the best middle three player in the world, and if we win this World Cup, he deserves the Ballon d'Or".

Klopp's comments come after Lovren claimed that based on his recent exploits, including with the Reds in the Champions League, people should view him as one of the world's best defenders. "My personal things weren't good, so I didn't want to go to the national team and make problems".

And, despite early struggles against an energetic Raheem Sterling on Wednesday in Moscow, he was largely proved correct as Croatia limited England's chances and nullified Kane.

The roles were reversed this time, with Lovren helping shut down the tournament's top scorer.

"He's proud of me and what I've achieved", he said.

"It's something, for me, special. I don't know exactly what happened before I came in", the manager told Liverpoolfc.com.

"I am a little bit disappointed for my team-mate (Henderson) because he also deserved to be in the final".
