  • Harry Kane Dejan Lovren

"Without being arrogant, I think I have proved to be one of the best defenders in the world".

Lovren and Kane are set to meet again in Moscow on Wednesday, less than nine months after the former was substituted in the first half as Liverpool were crushed by Tottenham at Wembley in the Premier League.

A Croatia worldwide, who featured in the 2017/18 UEFA Champions League final in May, believes his performances over the past few months prove that he is "one of the best defenders in the world".

Subasic suffered a tight hamstring towards the end of Croatia's quarter-final win over hosts Russian Federation and was unable to take goal-kicks before the tie went to penalties.

"It's something special for me".

Last night he exorcised those ghosts, helping to shut Harry Kane down as Croatia reached the World Cup final.

The signing of a world class goalkeeper remains the primary target for Liverpool this summer, particularly following Loris Karius' high profile mistakes in the Champions League final at the end of May. People are crying. It's something historical for us. People should respect us. We beat our record 20 years ago and we had it on our shoulders all the time, this weight I would say and people now will never forget us.

"[In Croatia] we went through a lot of s***, war, all these things and even now the situation is not the best".

"It was quite tough first half, we couldn't control the ball and they had some chances, but in the second half we did much better".

They had previously defeated Denmark and hosts Russian Federation on penalties, becoming the first team ever to advance to the final by winning three consecutive extra time games.

Croatia progressing to the World Cup final betters their best ever performance at the tournament by one step.

"After all we went through, we deserve to be here", he said.
