France vs. Croatia match Paul Pogba performed very well as captain to motivate France all the way to win the World Cup versus Croatia in Moscow.
The Manchester United star scored an incredible goal from the edge of the area in a frenzied game that involved lots of controversy.
The opener, from a Mario Mandzukic own-goal, was disputed due to Antoine Griezmann went down under seemingly little contact, whereas Pogba appeared to be offside and interfering with play after the Atletico star's delivery.
Croatia responded for the fourth consecutive knock-out game through Ivan Perisic with the Inter Milan winger smashing home a left-footed strike from the edge of the area to equalize.
Perisic then went from hero to villain, handling in the area that cost his side a penalty after the aid of Video Assistant Refereeing (VAR). Griezmann stepped up and rolled it home to send Les Bleus into the lead again.
The game continued in the second half and it was Pogba who scored the delightful third, curling the ball into the left corner from the edge of the area.
The fourth goal came from Kylian Mbappe who drove it home from the distance low into the bottom left corner.
However, there is still some fight remaining in Croatia as they rallied thanks to a Hugo Lloris howler. The Spurs goalkeeper tried to skip past the rushing Mario Mandzukic, but the Juventus star managed to read the situation perfectly to deflect into the empty net.
Coach Didier Deschamps's side braved the storm and in the end, they were successful in landing their second World Cup in their country history and spark the start of a potentially dominant era in the world of French football.

everything was on france side and they knewt how much they need to play to win world cup for second time!they have great players who can score in every moment and with some luck with first two goals they had everything!congratulations to winners!
If the truth was that France was the favorite to win in this great final but I do not know if someone thought that I was going to be the same result as in a previous match ... I really liked the match and Congratulations to France for taking away the dram home
I know a few people here that wanted croatia to win for the bet and bet only. Someone played 50 euro on croatia That was a big gamble that would have paid big time. Unfortunately, the one in favor won. France had 1.95 here and croatia 3.85
France knew to defend well in this match even if he received two goals. It was a penalty at 37 minutes when France received and after that scored for 2-1 through Antoine Griezmann minutes 38. Croatia played well but could not pass too often of the French defense and i noticed a player who made a poor game Sime Vrsaljko. It was a beautiful final and the rest is history...
I was at work when this game was on and I was lucky enough that the prisoner I was transporting wanted to listen to the game on the radio, so I was able to listen to it. I got in just before Framce scored their 2nd goal. From what I could tell based on the commentators it must have been a good game to watch.
Yes very good match and for finap very many goals so as fan of football i like duch matches. It was super good finap to watch for me because i not support any teqms from final but get good match with many goals. I think in tournament mbappe really look very good and he is so young, i think if he plays liie this then best ppayer in world in 3-4 years
france have great players and some young players who will be in team for many years!who know how they will play on next world cup,especially when it will be on winter!as we see on last world cups,when somebody from europe win world cup,on next they cant pass from group!we will see will same thing happen with france!
France can make history in the next 10 years with this young team even if they did not play the best football. They have gained experience and will learn even more. They have the potential, especially because of African players born in France or not. They learned football and will be the part of this generation and will do many positive things in the future.
Yes i too read that some people think that france caj hr win all major tournaments in this squad of players because very good players and young age. But i not think so because there are many teams and they havr too good pkayers and dome new young guys can find and some luck too. So not all wind f r frqjce i think
Always someone wonders how much money are these players get, besides the glory and the fame.And in this case, it is 29 millions. Pounds also, which is even more than euro Well you can say they deserve it.
Mober, Football is the king of the sports and attracts as a magnet a lot of money from sponsorships, television rights, money from tickets or when they sell equipments with players names on them. How did you feel when Greece won the European Championship? You had big emotions in their matches?
Although it is not my faboritos football is right, is the most moving everything and generates a lot of money in all countries ... but that if sometimes I think that athletes earn too much money but I do not win anything complaining so it was already hahaha
I in this game hoped that the Croatian team would win ... the thing is that I did not really like the game of the French team .... but in the team of France there are superstars and they made this victory .... my congratulations to all the French and regrets to the Croats ... and Mbmape is just a hero
I do not know how much the athlete wins, but if this sport attracts money it is normal for players to be paid with good money, because is their work, training and much effort. If they would not earn enough money, then they were looking for work in another place. Footballers are pleased with less money but athletes have higher spending.
