‘Elite mentality’ – Liverpool star earns huge praised after Croatia beat England

Some Liverpool fans and indeed neutrals are heaping praise on Dejan Lovren after his Croatia side beat England to reach the World Cup final.

The 29-year-old has undergone some transformation after a bad start to the season at Liverpool, when he even found himself substituted off in the first half of a shocker at Tottenham.

A few months later and Lovren has been a rock solid performer for club and country, helping Liverpool to the Champions League final and now Croatia to their first ever appearance in a World Cup final.

Kieran Trippier had given England a 1-0 lead early on, but goals from Ivan Perisic and Mario Mandzukic saw Croatia come from behind and given Lovren another shot at winning a major final.

Some are amazed at the way he’s come back from such a low point of his career, and Twitter is now full of praise for the player after Croatia’s remarkable result this evening.
