Federation Internationale de Football Association 18 predicted the World Cup champions

Haway the lads

The Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.

One of those two teams will become World Cup champion later Sunday.

France's captain 20 years ago, Deschamps was lifted up by his players on the field and flung into the air several teams and caught.

Riot police was sent to the biggest Nike store in Paris as authorities feared fans would violently demand new French national team jerseys with two stars, symbolizing their two world titles. But France 2019 wasn't promoted much at all: No signs, events or displays in tourist areas. After a Mario Mandzukic own goal opened the scoring for France, Croatia hit back through a sublime Ivan Perisic equaliser, only for the referee to award Les Bleus a penalty after consulting with the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) team.

But whether it was complacency, factions in the squad, poor management or some combination of the lot, Jochim Loew's group could never get into gear in Russian Federation and finished dead-last in their group, a humbling exit they'd not suffered at a World Cup in 80 years. The goal put France up 4-1, closing the door on Croatia who had been the better team until Mbappe took control.

Right wing: Kylian Mbappe (France): The 19-year-old lit up the World Cup with his electric pace, power and lethal finishing. Croatia finished runners-up to France while Belgium took home the Bronze medal.

Sports Minister Laura Flessel told Europe-1 radio that the World Cup victory allows France's youth - like those in the poor suburbs where numerous players grew up - "to dare to believe in their dreams". Juventus Oman coach Gerald Lami also singled out Mbappe for praise.

"We hope to overcome all the difficulties", he said.

The Amir extended congratulations to the Russian President and the Russian people for the success of organising the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

And he also got a hug from a world leader.

"I never comment on referees but in a World Cup final you do not give such a penalty", said Dalic. "I would've picked France to win, but it was disappointing to see the way Germany went out".

In fact, the youngsters are so great that we're dying for a World Cup moments re-enactment from them.

Croatia had done it the hard way to reach this final, winning on penalties in the last 16 and quarter-final against Denmark and hosts Russian Federation respectively before requiring extra time to beat England in the semi-final.
