Fair play to Dejan Lovren, who’s about to play in a World Cup Final, just months after he starred in a Champions League Final.
The Croat was a man-mountain last night and deserved to be on the winning side against an England team who started well but ran out of ideas and legs.
And following the game, which sees a country with a population of just 4 million into the final, Lovren proclaimed that he’s one of the best defenders on the planet and deserves recognition as just that.
Lovren thinks he is one of the best defenders in the world 😂 #DeludedDejan

That takes some balls – and we rate him for it.
If he can transfer his form from the end of last season and the World Cup into 2018/19, we’ll have one of the best defensive pairings in Europe, considering Virgil van Dijk is already an automatic starter.
Lovren casually getting to the CL And WC Final in his bid for the Ballon D’or, at least.
