Lovren ready for Kane test at World Cup

Jordan Henderson and Dejan Lovren

Lovren continued the excellent form he displayed in the second half of Liverpool's season by repelling England and crushing their dreams of a first appearance in the final since 1966.

For Liverpool fans the Premier League crown remains their most sought-after trophy but under the stewardship of Jurgen Klopp there is a real sense that the club can finally add the elusive piece of silverware to their trophy cabinet.

"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".

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.

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

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

"I went through a lot of sh** and now I would say it is coming back".

The ball rebounded nearly out of play, then sat up for Kane to take another shot from less than two yards at a tight angle. Croatia take on England in the second semi-final of the World Cup.

"People are crying, they are happy in our country - this is something historical for us", Lovren said.

"We will never forget this". People now will never forget us.

"If you want, I had two players in the team because Ivan Perisic was my player when we won the double years ago at Dortmund". We've had this weight on our shoulders all the time, and now people will never forget us.

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.

"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".

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