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.

For Liverpool fans the Premier League crown remains their most sought-after trophy but under the stewardship of Jurgen Klopp there is a real sense that the club can finally add the elusive piece of silverware to their trophy cabinet.

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".

"It's something special for me", Lovren told beIN Sports."From my point of view, people were saying I had a hard season but I don't agree with that".

Lovren's Croatia team defeated England in Wednesday's World Cup semi-final to take their place in the Moscow showpiece against France.

"It's something special for me", Lovren said regarding the feat.

"I think people should recognise that I am also one of the best defenders in the world and not just talk nonsense", he told BeIN Sports.

This is also the first time the Balkan nation has made the final - the furthest they had advanced previously was in France in 1998, when a Davor Suker-inspired side were knocked out by the hosts in the last four.

"This is something historical for us", said Lovren.

- Who has the edge in the World Cup final?

"It's something we'll never forget". People now will never forget us.

"We beat our record from 20 years ago". We've had this weight on our shoulders all the time, and now people will never forget us.

"Now we have a chance to do something even better". We couldn't control the ball or control situations.

But after the break, Croatia took control, equalised through Ivan Perisic and then won the game with Mario Mandzukic's extra-time strike.
