  • Lovren defending

Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren has snapped at English reporters ahead of Croatia's World Cup semifinal against the Three Lions.

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

Memories turned back to him being substituted off after half an hour for Liverpool against Tottenham last October, when he went head to head with Harry Kane.

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.

But Lovren said he enjoyed taking on the world's best as he looks to showcase his talent on a huge stage.

"People are crying, they are happy in our country - this is something historical for us", Lovren said.

Arsenal signing Matteo Guendouzi: I've always wanted to join since childhood
And the midfielder believes his best quality is keeping the ball and passing. I want to establish myself here, which would be wonderful .

And he is delighted that this current Croatian generation have finally lived up to, and now surpassed, the standards of the 1998 team which reached the semi-finals.

We will never forget this. We beat our record of 20 years ago and we had it on our shoulders all the time, this weight. We will never forget this.

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.

"They had also good chances, but second half we did it much, much better. In extra-time we showed we are still able with the fatigue to play our game".

However, Lovren believes that his achievements confirm that he is among the world's best players in his position.

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