Lovren ready for Kane test at World Cup

Jordan Henderson and Dejan Lovren

People are crying, they are happy in our country.

And after playing a key role in Croatia's 2-1 semi-final win over England, the Liverpool centre-back gave a passionate post-match interview and fired back at his critics.

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... Before this game they said we are exhausted but we showed in extra-time we had fresher legs than them.

"Sometimes it is unfair".

"The difference was mental - because we knew we could write history and we did it". 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.

Speaking to BeIN SPORTS, he said: "I heard people saying I had a hard season but I don't agree with that".

Less than two months after lining up for Liverpool in the Champions League final, he is now heading for the biggest match in worldwide football.

'I took Liverpool to the final of the Champions League and now with my national team we are in the final.

Klopp's comments come after Lovren claimed that based on his recent exploits, including with the Reds in the Champions League, people should view him as one of the world's best defenders.

"It's something, for me, special".

"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".

"He's proud of me and what I've achieved", he said.

"Now we have a chance to do something even better".

"I can imagine everybody is disappointed but it was still a fantastic tournament with one game to come".
