  • Lovren right had a torrid time against Kane at Wembley in October

Lovren, who has featured in all six of Croatia's fixtures at this summer's tournament, added: "This is something we will never forget".

The former Southampton man has had a lot of unnecessary flak in recent times, including a whole lot of abuse on social media after he had an absolute stinker in a 4-1 defeat to Spurs at Wembley.

It followed an uncertain start to the season when Liverpool's defence was constantly identified as a weak link.

Even before the World Cup kicked off, the Liverpool defender seemed to think if any Croatian squad can, it's this one.

"This feels incredible, especially after everything that was said about us before the game".

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.

"It's not just the English press, I am talking about the criticism from the beginning".

"Sometimes it is unfair".

"Why didn't you ask me about when I played well?"

England manager Gareth Southgate picked the 25-year-old for the World Cup this year because of his calm temperament and mental toughness, according to the Daily Mail, two qualities Mourinho is said to be looking for in his next defender. I'm really happy for him.

"There is too much about me but, whatever, this is what gets me more motivated to work harder and prove everyone wrong". We beat our record of 20 years ago and we had it on our shoulders all the time, this weight. 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.

If Vrsaljko does not make it, one option for Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic will be to bring Vedran Corluka into central defence and push Domagoj Vida out to right-back.
