The 2nd in 20 years! The French team is world champion following their victory in the final against Croatia. In a real match played with Croats, admittedly more players, the men of Didier Deschamps flamed realism.
Croatia will have given everything in the beginning of this match but in front, unshaken, France opens the scoring on a free-kick from Griezmann deflected by Mandzukic against his side, in the 18th minute of play.
Croatia will not be slow to respond and is dangerous on kick set, too. Fired by Modric the free kick ricochets Croatian head to another before bouncing on the feet of well-served Perisic who tries the shot at close range, beaten by Lloris, equalization at the 28th minute of play.
France still passed before the break with a penalty kick whistled by Pitana after viewing the VAR who reported a hand fault of Perisic in the area. Griezmann shoots and beats Subasic against foot, after played the 38th minute.
The effectiveness of the Blues will continue with first Pogba who scored after a counterattack in the 59th minute of play. It was be copied by Mbappé, 4 minutes later, making it 4 goals to 1 for France.
Croatia will make a desperate comeback after Lloris misses control of Mandzukic 4-2 in the 69th minute.
France, after leaving Argentina or Belgium, breaks like in 1998 the dreams of the Croats in this World Cup. The men of Deschamps, just like him 20 years before, are world champions!
