Croatian Rebel Dejan Lovren Becomes the Hero of Liverpool

Total Croatia News

Dejan Lovren scored the winning goal against Borussia Dortmund in stoppage time taking Liverpool to the semi finals of Europa League. 

He may be out of the Croatian national team for the time being, but Dejan Lovren earned a place in the history books of Liverpool F.C on April 14, 2016, by scoring the late winner to lead his team to the semi-finals of the Europa League.

It was a fantastic match at Anfield tonight, Borussia led 2-0 and 3-1, but the home team kept on pushing, and it was the Croatian centre-half who headed the ball into the net in stoppage time for the winner. This is a great achievement for him, and it is worth mentioning that he played the whole match in a great shape. He added some extra food for thought for the Croatian national coach Ante Čačić tonight.

His captain in the national team, Dario Srna also hit the history books today by earning his 486 caps for Shakhtar, most appearances by a player in the club’s history. He celebrated the record in style, scoring from a penalty kick, and adding one assist in the 4-0 victory over Braga.

Luka Modrić is in the semi’s of the Champions League, Lovren and Srna got to the semi’s of the Europa League, and many more Croatian platers were involved in the quarterfinals. It seems that Croatians are in great shape for this summer’s European Championship, the question is only if the management of the national team will be good enough to manage players on such level.
