Dejan Lovren Says He's One Of The Best Defenders In The World

Dejan Lovren Says He's One Of The Best Defenders In The World

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.

Less than two months after lining up for Liverpool in the Champions League final, he is now heading for the biggest match in global football.

Lovren was a defensive rock as Croatia came from behind to beat England in the semi-final on Wednesday and seal a date with France in Moscow on Sunday.

I showed why I took Liverpool to the final of the Champions League and now with the national team, and now I'm in the World Cup final.

Dejan Lovren believes he should be regarded as one of the best defenders in the world after helping Croatia knock England out of the World Cup.

Speaking to BeIN SPORTS, he said: "I heard people saying I had a hard season but I don't agree with that".

The 20-year-old reached the milestone by starting her Kylie Cosmetics line that boomed into mega success and will now most likely be passed down to her daughter, Stormi.

I think people should recognise that I am also one of the best defenders in the world and not just talk nonsense. I would say it's my mistake, but I can live with that.

Croatia made history by surpassing the 1998 team that lost in the semi- finals.

He continued: 'This is something we will never forget. People are crying, they are happy in our country. People will never forget us.

"Now we have a chance to do something even better". Lovren agreed that the first 45 minutes was tough as his side failed to take control of the ball. In the last few seasons he's always scored more than 25 goals and he's one of the best strikers in the world.

They had previously defeated Denmark and hosts Russian Federation on penalties, becoming the first team ever to advance to the final by winning three consecutive extra time games.
