With a place in the final secured after a 2017-18 season in which Liverpool reached the Champions League final despite criticisms of their defensive weaknesses, Lovren feels a point had been proven about his quality as a player.
"I am perfectly ready and fit, and I can say the same for my teammates".
He added: "Modric is the best middle three player in the world and if we win this World Cup, he deserves the Ballon d'Or".
Last October, Lovren was taken off by Liverpool Manager Jurgen Klopp just half an hour into a game against Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley, when Kane scored twice in a 4-1 win for his side.
"People are crying, they are happy in our country - this is something historical for us", Lovren said.
"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".

They worked in '98 and we worked today, we reached out target to get to the final, I'm very satisfied". I expect the teams to be evenly matched, giving viewers an exciting semi-final.
"I took Liverpool to the final of the Champions League".
Lovren, whose nation are into the semi-finals for the first time since 1998, said Croatia could play with freedom. Like with my case, I think people should respect me also.
"This is something we will never forget". And Lovren insists they are not scared for the French, who will be favourites to fit the trophy for the second time, 20 years after beating the Croats in the last four. 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".
'In extra-time we showed we are still able with the fatigue to play our game'.
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.
