France win World Cup Final against Croatia 4-2

After a month of waiting whom will took the trophy, finally France celebrates its second time of winning in World Cup finals at Luzhniki Stadium in Russia on Sunday against Croatia, 4-2.

Well, we could say that France record to the entire game is really impressive except for a dull 0-0 draw against Denmark in their final group game. They beat Argentina, Uruguay, and Belgium to reach for the final.


The French, playing their third World Cup final, were made to sweat initially and were lucky to go ahead when Croatia striker Mario Mandzukic headed an Antoine Griezmann free kick into his own net in the 18th minute, the first own goal in a World Cup final.

Ivan Perisic levelled with a powerful shot 10 minutes later but the Croatia midfielder was then penalized for handball following a VAR review and Griezmann stepped up coolly to convert the 38th-minute penalty and put France 2-1 up.

Croatia fought hard for an hour but gradually ran out of steam after playing extra time in their three previous matches, and goals from Paul Pogba and Kylian Mbappe gave France a three-goal cushion.

GOAL! After the ball bounces around France's box, it falls for Perisic who takes one touch away from the defender before rifling a left-footed strike past Lloris

Then it was all downhill from there. A handball on Perisic was called a penalty kick after the use of the video assistant referee, and Antoine Griezmann finished it in the 38th minute:


Meanwhile thousand of people are gathered at the famouse Eiffel tower to celebrate the French national team success.
