Dejan Lovren demands respect after matching Thierry Henry feat

Lovren right had a torrid time against Kane at Wembley in October

With a place in the final secured after a 2017-18 season in which Liverpool reached the Champions League final despite criticisms of their defensive weaknesses, Lovren feels a point had been proven about his quality as a player.

He added: "Modric is the best middle three player in the world and if we win this World Cup, he deserves the Ballon d'Or".

"People said I had a hard season but I don't agree with that".

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

John Dean: Manafort's Trial Will Proceed Despite Jail Fracas
The 69-year old is now under arrest for bank fraud and money laundering with his criminal trial set to commence later this month. Hull said that when jail officials learned Manafort was communicating by email, his attorneys were told to stop the practice.

"But I like to challenge these strikers and to show to everyone that I'm one of the best defenders".

Lovren and his team-mates helped shackle England captain Harry Kane during last night's 2-1 extra time victory, and will now face France in Sunday's decider.

"I got a question about the 4-1 against Tottenham [in the Premier League]", he said.

And he is delighted that this current Croatian generation have finally lived up to, and now surpassed, the standards of the 1998 team which reached the semi-finals.

Lovren told CNN that they are a small country, only four million people and have big talent in their squad. People will never forget us. We beat our record of 20 years ago and we had it on our shoulders all the time, this weight. We will never forget this.

"I'm completely happy. I'm happy that he used the little advice we gave him in the last few years in a very good way".

Dalic refused to confirm whether right back Sime Vrsaljko would miss the game, after the Atletico Madrid player came off in extra time against Russian Federation.

Croatia and Liverpool centre-back Dejan Lovren has claimed that he deserves to be considered amongst the best defenders in world football. Lovren agreed that the first 45 minutes was tough as his side failed to take control of the ball.
