Liverpool defender Lovren: Modric deserves Ballon d'Or

The Merseyside club would ultimately lose 3-1 to Real Madrid in Kiev, but Lovren will once again have the opportunity to clinch silverware this Sunday in Moscow.

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

'From my point of view, I had people saying I had a hard season, but I don't agree with that.

"Since I came in, maybe Dejan made three or four mistakes, two of them in the Tottenham game, maybe one in a Champions League game previous year".

'I think 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 as anticipation has grown each year as to whether Croatia's squad will finally meet the expectations set in France two decades ago, they finally proved themselves -- after a historic win against England yesterday.

The Croatia global will be hoping to emerge victorious against France in the final, and the way he helped shut Kane down will give him confidence.

Liverpool reject another loan offer from Celtic for Harry Wilson
In addition to Wilson, Klopp has decisions to make over a host of other youngsters who are attracting interest. Norwich City have reportedly enquired about taking teenage striker Ben Woodburn on loan from Liverpool .

"This is something we will never forget". People are crying in our country.

"We will never forget this". And it Is a special history when you look back and see that three times in the knock out stages we have played 120 minutes and yet we still had fresher legs than that England team.

"Now we have the chance to do something even better and hopefully we can do it".

"It was a tough first half".

But there is a major doubt over the participation of Vrsaljko, who hobbled off with a knee injury in extra-time during the quarter-final win over Russian Federation in Sochi.

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.

He deserves, if we win this World Cup, the Ballon d'Or'.
