I am one of the world's best, says Lovren

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 believes he has shown he is one of the best defenders in world football after reaching both the Champions League and World Cup finals this summer.

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

And Lovren claims that he should be recognised as one of the world's best after reaching the Champions League final with Liverpool and now the World Cup final against France, which takes place on Sunday.

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 I like to challenge these strikers and to show to everyone that I'm one of the best defenders". Before this game they said we are exhausted but we showed in extra-time we had fresher legs than them.

The list price hikes don't factor in discounts that companies may provide to some insurance companies and patients. But by Tuesday, the company's position changed, as it opted to scrap the increases until at least next year.

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

Lovren was able to shackle Harry Kane for the majority of the 120 minutes, and was asked after the game how Croatia have so much talent within their ranks.

"I really don't understand these questions, always looking back to where I made some mistakes", he said.

"But I think even now after 20 years people will remember us and not just the '98 team".

He added: "Today everyone in Croatia and around the world knows that we managed to make history". This is why I am proud.
