  • Lovren ready for Kane test at World Cup

"It's something special for me", Lovren told beIN Sports."From my point of view, people were saying I had a hard season but I don't agree with that".

Dejan Lovren believes Croatia's incredible feat of reaching the World Cup final is down to good genes. People are crying. It's something historical for us.

The signing of a world class goalkeeper remains the primary target for Liverpool this summer, particularly following Loris Karius' high profile mistakes in the Champions League final at the end of May.

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

The Liverpool centre-back played his part in keeping England striker Harry Kane quiet at Luzhniki Stadium as Zlatko Dalic's side bounced back from Kieran Trippier's fifth-minute opener to win 2-1 in extra-time.

"This is something we will never forget". We beat our record of 20 years ago and we had it on our shoulders all the time, this weight. Before this game they said we are exhausted but we showed in extra-time we had fresher legs than them.


Asked about the game by one reporter, Lovren told the Mirror: "I don't know what to say in response to this question, it's completely irrelevant, that 4-1 defeat".

"Now we have the chance to do something even better and hopefully we can do it".

"It was a tough first half".

Indeed, both Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic, of Real Madrid and Barcelona respectively, have confirmed their status as two of the best midfielders in the world, while Ivan Perisic and Mario Mandzukic have also seen their stock rise.

"England are one of the favourites to win the World Cup and you have to respect that", he said.
