Lovren's World Cup hopes lifted
1:44pm Monday 21st October 2013 in Football
Croatia finished second in their qualifying group to Belgium, meaning they were one of eight teams that went into today’s draw.
As one of the seeds, they could have faced any of Sweden, France, Romania, or Iceland.
Having been pitted against the latter of those nations, Saints defender Lovren and his international colleagues will be favourites to book a place at next summer’s tournament, in Brazil.
Elsewhere, Ukraine will play France, Portugal will take on Sweden, and Greece will meet Romania.
The two-legged ties will be played on November 15 and November 19.
