Dejan Lovren says nightmare October club game vs Harry Kane irrelevant now

Adjust Comment Print

The Tottenham forward is the tournament's leading scorer with six goals, putting him level with Gary Lineker's 1986 haul, ahead of Wednesday's semi-final against Croatia.

Captain Harry Kane is leading England's unexpected bid for glory, and is hoping to inspire the next generation of footballers by going all the way in Russian Federation.

Hurst believes Gareth Southgate's side can match their finest hour and go all the way in Russian Federation, and Kane admits the support from such England greats is further incentive to succeed. It's so much inspiration.

Such has been Kane's influence at the World Cup, that by time England prepared to face Sweden in the quarter-finals the Englsih-man had acquired many names. "His team-mates play at top clubs, it's going to be a hard task but if we're ready to give our all on the pitch like against Argentina, if we're compact, I don't believe there will be problems". It is a great experience for us, and we got to learn from it.

Croatia are in the last four for the first time since 1998 but they had to survive two penalty shoot-outs against Denmark and Russian Federation to make it this far.

Asked about the game by one reporter, Lovren told the Mirror: "I don't know what to say in response to this question, it's completely irrelevant, that 4-1 defeat. We are one step closer to what is the biggest game in football as a professional". But we also have qualities at set-pieces.

"It was a tough game, a 50-50 game, I'm sure we'll look back at stuff we could have done better but we worked as hard as we could".

"We want players to be 100 per cent but we will see after training. He has been showing season after season that he is one of the best strikers in the Premier League and he is one of their greatest threatsl, but he is not alone".
