Dejan Lovren has continued his war of words with Spains players after Croatia came out on top in a thrilling 3-2 victory that keeps their UEFA Nations League hopes alive.
The Liverpool defender unleashed a furious tirade against Spain – and specifically their captain, Sergio Ramos, who he has a long-running feud with – on an Instagram live after the game, calling them p******.
And his anger with the Spanish players seems to be rooted in a lack of class he felt they showed on the pitch.
We have shown that we have bigger balls than them, Lovren told reporters. They were rude on the pitch, no fair play.
You have to have fair play and congratulate opponents when they have won, but Spain have shown they dont have that generosity and that has turned against them.
When we lost 6-0 we greeted them, we showed that we are a team with decency and honour.
Only [Alvaro] Morata came to congratulate us, the rest didnt and Ive never seen anything like that.
Croatia touched down in London on Friday evening ahead of their crunch match against the Three Lions at Wembley on Sunday and Lovren is confident even without the injured Ivan Rakitic.
The English are afraid of us, said Lovren, who helped see off England in the World Cup semi-final. But in general everyone is afraid of us and this is how it should be, we deserved it.
