  • Jordan Henderson and Dejan Lovren

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.

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.

He wrote for the Irish Independent: "I give Lovren credit for rebuilding his Liverpool career after that and there is no doubt that the arrival of Virgil van Dijk in the January transfer window helped him to put in a better second half of the season, but I'm still not convinced he can relied upon every time he takes to the field".

Croatia and Liverpool centre-back Dejan Lovren has claimed that he deserves to be considered amongst the best defenders in world football.

"People are crying, they are happy in our country - this is something historical for us", Lovren said. "After everything that's been said before the game, we showed our character and that we deserve to be in the final".

A Single Goal Sends France To The World Cup Final
Didier Deschamps issued a warning that France will continue to "climb mountains" after reaching the World Cup final. The boys - and their manager - are a credit to the shirt and the country, I'm extremely proud of them".

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.

"I heard people saying I had a hard season but I don't agree with that", the 29-year-old told beIN SPORTS.

"I think people should recognise that I'm one of the best defenders in the world".

- Who has the edge in the World Cup final? We beat our record of 20 years ago and we had it on our shoulders all the time, this weight. It's why I'm proud. Third or fourth at the World Cup, with all the teams that were not there like Italy and Holland, that were out early like Germany, Brazil and Argentina - it's a big tournament with a lot of really good teams. "I don't understand these questions, why they're always looking back, when I made mistakes".
