'I Am One Of The Best Defenders In The World!'

Harry Kane Dejan Lovren

"This is something historical for us", said Lovren.

Lovren was instrumental in helping Croatia come from behind against England on Wednesday to secure their place in Sunday's final with France.

He had been irritated on the eve of the game by references to his substitution after 31 minutes of a 4-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur back in October, when two...

"But we enjoy to play against big teams, as we showed against Argentina, and have nothing to lose". From the beginning, sometimes it's unfair.

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.

"From my point of view, people said I had a hard season but I don't agree", said the 29-year-old.

"I took Liverpool to the final of the Champions League".

Oblak has established himself as one of the world's very best goalkeepers during his four years with Atlético Madrid and the Slovenian worldwide would represent a major summer coup for Liverpool, if a deal can be struck.

"I think people should recognise that I am one of the best defenders in the world and not just talk nonsense".

"The scars left from that nightmare half-an-hour against Kane must still be there and if the England skipper can score an early goal in Moscow tonight, it will be interesting to see how Lovren reacts".

"We have the chance to do something better, and hopefully we can do it on Sunday".

"I really don't understand these questions, always looking back to where I made some mistakes", he said. This is why I am proud. "I wish we could both be in the final for that game but there is only one victor".
