One just made his debut in the English Premier League with Southampton on the weekend, the other is on the verge of signing a multi-million deal with Tottenham Hotspur. Big things are tipped for Croatian internationals Dejan Lovren and Alen Halilovic, but they are not the only ones in their respective families who maybe making all the headlines.

Davor Lovren, brother of centre-back Dejan, and Dino Halilovic, Alen’s younger sibling, have both recently returned to Croatia from Manchester where they were part of the Nike Premier Cup winning Dinamo Zagreb U15 team. Dinamo Zagreb beat Italian giants AC Milan in the final earlier this month 2:1, with Dejan’s younger brother Davor scoring the winner in extra-time.

Both Lovren and Halilovic are currently with the Dinamo Zagreb’s Youth Academy in Zagreb. Halilovic and Lovren were impressive during the recent tournament in Manchester, and both are also tipped to go onto bigger things like their more famous brothers.
