SKY SPORTS GETTYEngland vs Croatia Harry Kane is set to come up against Dejan Lovren on Wednesday
Lovren can have his off days - he was terrorised by Romelu Lukaku at Old Trafford in March too - but there is something to be said for a player who has reached both the Champions League final and World Cup final within three months.
"People should recognise that I am also one of the best defenders in the world and not just talk nonsense".
"From my point of view I had people saying I had a hard season but I don't agree with that", he told beIN Sports.
This is also the first time the Balkan nation has made the final - the furthest they had advanced previously was in France in 1998, when a Davor Suker-inspired side were knocked out by the hosts in the last four.
"It's something we'll never forget".
"This is something historical for us", said Lovren. We beat our record of 20 years ago and we had it on our shoulders all the time, this weight.
"But we enjoy to play against big teams, as we showed against Argentina, and have nothing to lose".
Croatia progressing to the World Cup final betters their best ever performance at the tournament by one step. People should respect us.
"I'm completely happy. I'm happy that he used the little advice we gave him in the last few years in a very good way". He deserves, if we win this World Cup, the Ballon d'Or'.
