The 29-year-old has been criticised for his performances for Liverpool this season but has played a key role in Croatia's success in Russian Federation this summer.
Extraordinarily Lovren will become only the second ever player to feature in a Champions League final for an English club and World Cup final in one season after Thierry Henry achieved the feat in 2006 with Arsenal and France respectively.
"England are one of the favourites to win the World Cup and you have to respect that", he said.
Lovren joined Liverpool from Southampton in 2014 and played 43 games in all competitions last season.
"From my point of view, people said I had a hard season but I don't agree", he said.
I showed why I took Liverpool to the final of the Champions League and now with the national team, and now I'm in the World Cup final.
"But I like to challenge these strikers and to show to everyone that I'm one of the best defenders".
He continued: 'This is something we will never forget. "People are crying. It's something historical for us", the Liverpool defender said. We beat our record of 20 years ago and we had it on our shoulders all the time, this weight. Before this game they said we are exhausted but we showed in extra-time we had fresher legs than them.
Croatia played extra-time for the third successive knockout match, having previously beaten Denmark and hosts Russian Federation on penalties. "Now we've got a chance to do something better on Sunday".
"I went through a lot of sh** and now I would say it is coming back". Lovren agreed that the first 45 minutes was tough as his side failed to take control of the ball.
Lovren also called for Croatia team-mate Luka Modric to receive the highest individual award in world football, the Ballon d'Or.
