ITVThe Liverpool team-mates will battle it out for a place in the World Cup final
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.
"I think people should recognise that I am one of the best defenders in the world and not just talk nonsense".
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".
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.
But having helped his side overcome England 2-1 in their semi-final in Moscow on Wednesday, Lovren is demanding respect.
Dejan Lovren answered his critics for as Croatia beat England.
Lovren said: "This is something we will never forget".
The Liverpool centre back also said his country was now thirsty for "revenge" over France in Sunday's showpiece as they seek to banish the memory of their semi-final defeat to same nation 20 years ago. We will never forget this. "People will never forget us", he added.
"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". We couldn't control the ball or control situations.
'In extra-time we showed we are still able with the fatigue to play our game'.
"Modric is not one of the best, (he is) the best midfield player in the world, and if we win this World Cup, he deserves the Ballon d'Or". I didn't see all of the World Cup games but a lot - he played a fantastic tournament so far.
