France have emerged champions of world again as they recorded a 4-2 victory over Croatia in the Russia 2018 World Cup final.
It was an entertaining fixture played at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow in front of the 50,000 capacity. Mario Mandzukic scored an own goal to put France ahead in the match but Ivan Perisic leveled matters a few minutes later with a bullet of a shot.

Then, Antoine Griezmann converted from the penalty spot to give France the lead after the VAR had adjudged Perisic to have handled the ball in the box.
France went into half time with a 2-1 lead as they had the advantage going into the second 45 minutes. The second half was also a feast of goals for both sides as Paul Pogba made it 3-1 to France after his first shot was blocked but wasted not time to convert on the second attempt. France were not done as their 19-year-old striker Kylian Mbappe shot from outside the 18-yard box which beat Subasic in goal which put the match at 4-1.
