‘Keep your head held high’, ‘Unlucky’ – Lots of Liverpool fans turn up to support Lovren

It was just not meant to be for Croatia after all their heroics in reaching the World Cup final. France ran out 4-2 winners, deservedly so, and lifted their first World Cup since 1998.

Croatia actually started brightly but it was France who got the first goal as Mario Mandzukic deflected a free-kick from Antoine Griezmann into his own net.

The underdogs then responded via a firecracker from Ivan Perisic but the scorer then gave away a penalty away after he handled the ball.

Griezmann stepped up to make it 2-1 in the first half and France never looked back. The French then made it three via Paul Pogba before Kylian Mbappe scored the fourth goal.

Mandzukic pulled one back for Dejan Lovren’s side but it was not going to be enough as our Liverpool man had to deal with losing another final this season.

We would have loved it had Lovren picked up the trophy but France were the better side and had a number of quality players too.

Nevertheless, Lovren will still return as a hero to many and here are some of the best reactions to the Liverpool man just missing out on the prize.
