The last time France made it to the final of the football World Cup was in 2006 when they finished as runners-up against Spain. Meanwhile, in the 15 World Cup appearances, Les Bleus will feature in their third final. The Didier Deschamps’ men are unbeaten so far and the only time they failed to win a contest was against Denmark in the group stage, which ended in a draw. Other than that, France have won everything that came their way.
Croatia, on the other hand, will experience the atmosphere of playing in the World Cup final for the first time. The best they finished previously in the World Cup was third during the 1998 edition. Meanwhile, Croatia come into the contest having won all their matches. In quarterfinal and semifinal, Croatia’s matches witnessed some drama as both the games were decided on the basis of penalty shootouts.
France confirmed line up: Hugo Lloris (GK), Benjamin Pavard, Raphael Varane, Samuel Umtiti, Lucas Hernandez, Paul Pogba, N’Golo Kante, Kylian Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann, Blaise Matuidi, Olivier Giroud.
Croatia confirmed line up: Danijel Subasic (GK), Sime Vrsaljko, Dejan Lovren, Domagoj Vida, Ivan Strinic, Ivan Rakitic, Marcelo Brozovic, Ante Rebic, Luka Modric, Ivan Perisic, Mario Mandzukic.
Domagoz Vida heaved a huge sigh of relief after being cleared in yet another pro-Ukraine act of his emerged and the FIFA disciplinary committee lets him off the hook after the Croatian defender apologised. It is massive from Croatian point of view since Vida has been exceptional form and has complemented Dejan Lovern at the back for his country. One area where Croatia gain points over Les Bleus is they are used to playing the extra time and penalty shootouts and have emerged victors on each occasion which shows their level of mental toughness.
France like Croatia does not have any injury concern and their superstar players will be itching to go on the field and get the Cup home after a hiatus of twenty years. The Les Bleus have overcome Uruguay, Argentina, and Belgium on the way to the final with never for once being secondary in any department throughout those massive knockout games. The star of their campaign so far has been Kylian Mbappe who has defied his age to produce truly world-class performances. The PSG forward darting runs have been virtually unstoppable and he looks the best bet to open up the Croatian defence in the final.
The midfield trio of Paul Pogba, NGolo Kante, and Blaise Matuidi has looked sharp and there is a balance about their play. Kante, in particular, seems to be everywhere on the pitch and as per his coach he is a type of player whose contribution to the team is immense and often gets overshadowed by the forward players. In defense, Raphael Varane and Samuel Umtiti have been largely untroubled and it will be interesting to see how they cope up when putting under the duress. But there is largely a feel-good factor about this team and everyone seems to be doing their job well.
Expect, a pulsating final which will be an icing on the cake for a tournament that has amazed us from day one. It is stage such as these that legends are born and history is written. Who steps up to be confined to the sporting folklore of their nation, the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow will witness tonight.
