France vs Croatia: representing the leagues of Europe

France are World Cup champions after victory in Moscow final

The Croatians also have one fewer day of rest heading into the 21st World Cup championship.

Kylian Mbappe of France celebrates with team mates after scoring his team's fourth goal during the 2018 FIFA World Cup Final between France and Croatia at Luzhniki Stadium on July 15, 2018 in Moscow, Russia.

France led 2-1 at halftime courtesy of the first own-goal and the first video- reviewed penalty in a World Cup final.

The dynamic trio of Kylian Mbappé, Antoine Griezmann and Paul Pogba were just too quick and skilful on the night, and all three got on to the score-sheet too. Then, at 18 minutes in, Croatia striker Mario Mandzukic mistakenly scored a goal for France by heading it into his own team's goal.

As you can imagine, more people are reading The Jerusalem Post than ever before. "The crowd absolutely erupted as soon as the final whistle sounded, all 80,000 of those packed in the fan zone". They are the first and only team in World Cup history to avoid defeat after trailing in three knockout matches in a single edition.

Mbappe, who plays for Paris Saint-Germain in the French league, was born months after France first won its only other World Cup title in 1998.

France was a heavy favorite to make it deep into the tournament from the outset, but Croatia's path looked especially daunting heading into the group stage, with Argentina, Iceland, and Nigeria all in the same group.

"Of course we know what's happening in France, all the more so after seeing all the images after the Belgium game".

Croatia needed nerves of steal once more to book a first semi-final spot since 1998, as well as boundless energy to counter a Russian Federation side with the support of a nation behind them in Sochi.

"But I don't think it's true that we got carried away, even if there was a lot of euphoria".

Croatia opened the World Cup with a 2-0 win over Nigeria in their traditional red and white checkers.

"We are sad but proud at the same time", he said.

"We played well but the penalty knocked the wind out of us and after that it was very hard", Dalic said, after congratulating France on their victory.
