Sergio Ramos vs. Dejan Lovren: Real Madrid star 'likes' Instagram post trolling Liverpool rival

While hardly edifying for either player, the spectacularly petty war of words between Sergio Ramos and Dejan Lovren continues to rumble on into yet another new week.

The ill feeling between Ramos and several members of the Liverpool camp began during last season's Champions League final, wherein the Real Madrid captain tangled with Mohamed Salah and injured the Egypt forward's shoulder.

Several minor flare-ups have occurred since, before Lovren fully reignited the feud last month in an interview...

UEFA Nations League: Andrej Kramaric (57') England 0-1 Croatia

LONDON -- Three thoughts on England's 2-1 win vs. Croatia in League A, Group 4 of the UEFA Nations League.

1. England gain some revenge on Croatia

Four months after an agonising World Cup semifinal defeat in Moscow, England optimism again looked set to be punctured by Croatian resilience and experience.

However, Friday's UEFA Nations League clash between Croatia and England was a step too far for one fan of the visiting team.

He attempted to enter the HNK Stadion in Rijeka dressed as a steward -- orange bib and all -- but failed to get into a match that was played behind closed doors to complete a two-game stadium ban...

World Cup photographer receives gift from Croatia's Mario Mandzukic

While the name might not be instantly familiar, you'll no doubt remember Yuri Cortez as the photographer who quite literally got caught up in Croatia's World Cup celebrations.

Cortez was knocked off his stool and engulfed by a muddle of Croatian players after Mario Mandzukic scored against England in the semifinals -- which led to some truly brilliant photos being captured amid the chaos.

Sensing an opportunity for a little positive PR, the Croatian National Tourist Board then offered the cameraman...

World Cup by the numbers - 169 goals, 29 penalties, 10 late winners, 4 red cards

France beat Croatia 4-2 to win the title for the second time and cap off a memorable World Cup in Russia. ESPN brings you the best numbers from what has been a World Cup of records.

'The world is blue' - media react to France's World Cup win over Croatia

France beat Croatia in the World Cup final and the media in the two countries celebrated/commiserated their teams' respective achievements.


L'Equipe who lead with 'an eternal happiness' accompanied by a picture of the moment that Les Bleus' captain Hugo Lloris lifted the World Cup trophy, it is a nod of the head towards 1998's iconic 'for eternity' front page after the French beat Brazil at Stade de France all those years ago.

In the capital, Le Parisien have gone for 'head in the...
