Liverpool star Dejan Lovren demands respect from critics following World Cup heroics

14 July 2018

He was also integral to Liverpool's run to the Champions League final in May, but although Klopp was full of praise for the 29-year-old he also said there is still room for improvement.

"Modric is not one of the best, [he is] the best midfield player in the world and if we win this World Cup he deserves the Ballon d'Or".

Croatia seemed on the ropes when Kieran Trippier gave England an early lead, but they hit back in the second half through Ivan Perisic before grabbing a victor in extra-time through Mario Mandzukic.

"From my point of view, people said I had a hard season but I don't agree with that", he told BeIN Sports after beating England.

'I took Liverpool to the final of the Champions League and now with my national team we are in the final.

"Without being arrogant, I think I have proved to be one of the best defenders in the world".

Lovren will be hoping he can avoid the same fate as Henry by leading Croatia to World Cup victory against France this Sunday.

"They had also good chances, but second half we did it much, much better".

The Croatia global will be hoping to emerge victorious against France in the final, and the way he helped shut Kane down will give him confidence. People are crying in our country.

He continued: "This is something we'll never forget". We beat our record from 20 years ago. And it Is a special history when you look back and see that three times in the knock out stages we have played 120 minutes and yet we still had fresher legs than that England team. "Now we have a chance to do something even better".

Croatia played extra-time for the third successive knockout match, having previously beaten Denmark and hosts Russian Federation on penalties.

Speaking of the experience as a whole, Lovren says it is one that the tiny European nation will always remember.
