"It was a mistake": excuse to the Russians for "Glory to Ukraine"

2018 World Cup: Croatia Sacks Coach Ahead of Semi Final Clash with England

Croatia do not have a world class right-back and left-back, but they do not concede.

Croatia's participation in Sunday's final will mark a remarkable staging post in the journey of one of its key players Dejan Lovren, who experienced life as a child refugee in the 1990s after fleeing war-torn Bosnia.

"I said after the Argentina group game [Croatia won 3-0] that I had a good feeling. We will continue to support the Croats as Croatian volunteers have supported us from the very beginning of the war with Russian Federation", says activist Daniel Akulenko.

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

"The mental side is very important, and if you want success in the competition, you need strong basics, especially defensively because when you defend well, you have more chance to win games".

Recall, July 7 Croatia national team defeated the Russian team for the 2018 world Cup in Russia.

Lovren has certainly been instrumental in Croatia's success to this point.

Donald Trump shares letter from Kim Jong Un, says ‘progress being made!’
Trump shared the letter in a tweet Thursday, writing, "A very nice note from Chairman Kim of North Korea ". The idea of "practical actions" is hardly a firm stance issued by the North Korean dictator.

Lovren, who was tested by England's pace, insisted he deserved more credit, with a World Cup final following less than two months after he appeared in the Champions League showpiece.

"I think people should recognize that I am also one of the best defenders in the world and not just talk nonsense".

"He was for us in the Champions League final, two years ago he was in the Europa League final, yes he didn't win that".

French right-back Lilian Thuram scored his only two goals in a storied 142-cap worldwide career in that semi-final 20 years ago.

Liverpool FC have submitted a £17.5m offer for Besiktas and Croatia defender Domagoj Vida, according to a report in Turkey.

Of course, we have yet to see him take on the pink hair-rollers of his adopted home town, but there's time yet.

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