Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp backs Dejan Lovren after Croatia World Cup run

  • Jordan Henderson and Dejan Lovren

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".

He continued: "This is something we'll never forget".

And Lovren claims that he should be recognised as one of the world's best after reaching the Champions League final with Liverpool and now the World Cup final against France, which takes place on Sunday. We will never forget this.

Subasic suffered a tight hamstring towards the end of Croatia's quarter-final win over hosts Russian Federation and was unable to take goal-kicks before the tie went to penalties.

"It's something special for me", Lovren said regarding the feat. And Lovren insists they are not scared for the French, who will be favourites to fit the trophy for the second time, 20 years after beating the Croats in the last four.

The roles were reversed this time, with Lovren helping shut down the tournament's top scorer.


And as anticipation has grown each year as to whether Croatia's squad will finally meet the expectations set in France two decades ago, they finally proved themselves -- after a historic win against England yesterday.

Lovren was not impressed when he was reminded of that day by an English reporter.

"Like in my case when you are talking about me".

"He's proud of me and what I've achieved", he said. "You are just nit-picking at my poor performances". "He has been showing season after season that he is one of the best strikers in the Premier League and he is one of their greatest threatsl, but he is not alone".

Croatia played extra-time for the third successive knockout match, having previously beaten Denmark and hosts Russian Federation on penalties. "We need all the players, but those on the pitch must be fully fit".
