Dejan Lovren Says He's One Of The Best Defenders In The World

Dejan Lovren Says He's One Of The Best Defenders In The World

Captain Luka Modric was again crucial for Croatia, and Lovren said the Real Madrid midfielder should win the Ballon d'Or if he leads his country to World Cup glory, per beIN Sports (via Bairner): "Modric is the best middle three player in the world, and if we win this World Cup, he deserves the Ballon d'Or".

Dejan Lovren made history with Croatia on Wednesday night but wants to rewrite it immediately by helping his country lift the World Cup.

"I would say we have good mothers and fathers, they are making good love I would say", he joked.

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.

Last season, Lovren was hauled off after just 31 minutes of Liverpool's 4-1 defeat to Tottenham at Wembley last October, after the defender was at fault for the first two goals.

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

"It's something we'll never forget".

"We will never forget this". We've had this weight on our shoulders all the time, and now people will never forget us.

If Lovren and his team-mates can control Mbappe and manage the alternative threats of Olivier Giroud and Antoine Griezmann on Sunday in Moscow, Croatia will have a genuine chance of pulling off a victory.

"This feels incredible, especially after everything that was said about us before the game".

"It was a tough first half".

"But we enjoy to play against big teams, as we showed against Argentina, and have nothing to lose".

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