The former Southampton man has been vilified a lot during his time at Anfield but now he sets up a clash against Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson’s England for a place in the finals of the World Cup.
The match against Russia was topsy-turvy as Croatia led twice and were pegged back by the hosts. Drama was all around as Mario Fernandes scored a header for the Russians in extra time to cancel out Domagoj Vida‘s goal during that period.
Brilliant, Dejan Lovren. 💪 pic.twitter.com/sRhGsP2ODs

The match ended 2-2 after extra time and it was time for another shoot-out which the Croatians overcame, thanks to some great work by Subasic between the sticks.
Lovren’s nation marches on in Russia and as they look to continue their great story. A section of our fans celebrated the great work by Lovren but also wanted us to sign his partner in defence, Vida.

You mean “Welcome Vida”

I’m glad for him. He’s been always slaughtered by fans and media alike, and even though he’s been in superb form since January he hasn’t got the credit he certainly deserves. I wish he wins the @FIFAWorldCup to finally silence all his haters 💪
