Dejan Lovren’s Croatia are through to the quarter-finals of the World Cup after a penalty shoot-out win against Denmark on Sunday night, and plenty of Liverpool supporters are excited about it.
Lovren has had a tumultuous time at Anfield since signing for the club in 2014, but has recently emerged as a consistent defensive performer alongside January arrival Virgil van Dijk.
For the first time in a while, Liverpool fans have some sort of confidence in their established defensive partnership, even if some would still prefer Jurgen Klopp buy a player that can compete in the position.
He has had an excellent World Cup so far for his country, featuring in all four matches. Croatia now have an excellent chance of reaching the semi-finals of the tournament, with a match against hosts Russia in the next round.
Will Lovren be a UEFA Champions League finalist and a World Cup finalist just months apart?
These fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his summer so far…
Dejan Lovren has been incredible at the World Cup. Pass it on. #LFC
