Dejan Lovren claims he is one of the best defenders in the world after Croatia beat England to reach the World Cup final. Lovren and star midfielder Luka Modric were refugees as children.

"I went through a lot of sh** and now I would say it is coming back". The country is small but all the players are pretty big. "Now we have a chance to do something even better".

"It's unbelievable how many talents we have in sport, basketball, handball, water polo, tennis, for sure".

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. 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.

He said: "It feels incredible, especially after everything that was said about us before the game". There's the former U.S. Open tennis champion Marin Cilic, a raft of current and ex-NBA players, Olympic champions in skiing, discus and the country's beloved water polo.

Lovren impressed in Croatia's win over England.

Croatia face a tough task against France in their first World Cup final on Sunday.

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

Now that the 2018 squad has gone a step further than the 1998 semifinalists, Lovren and Croatia are creating a narrative beyond anything they experienced as children when the stars of the national team were etched into folk lore following a semifinal loss to France. "We showed our character, we showed that we deserved to be in the final and people should respect us", he said.

"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".
