Croatia joined France in the 2018 FIFA World Cup final by beating England 2-1 after extra time in Moscow on Wednesday.
They will go into Sunday's clash as big underdogs, as Les Bleus boast a much deeper squad of higher quality.
But Croatia have plenty of their own stars, including Luka Modric, Ivan Rakitic and Mario Mandzukic, and they will be confident of causing France plenty of problems in their first appearance in a World Cup final.

France have much greater World Cup final pedigree than Croatia.
They beat Brazil 3-0 in 1998 to win their home tournament, lost on penalties to Italy in Germany in 2006's final and are now looking to join Argentina and Uruguay with two World Cup triumphs.
In contrast, Croatia were only readmitted to FIFA in 1992, and their progression to a World Cup final is remarkable, as Miguel Delaney of The Independent highlighted:
They have endured a tough run to the final, needing penalties to get past Denmark and Russia before having to come from a goal behind to beat England in extra time.
France, meanwhile, have enjoyed serene progress through the knockout rounds. They beat Argentina 4-3 in the last 16 in a classic encounter, eased past Uruguay with a 2-0 success in the quarter-finals and then claimed a controlled 1-0 victory over Belgium.
Given the immense quality they have in their side, it feels as though France could have another gear to go to should they need it against Croatia.
And that could be where the problem lies for Zlatko Dalic's men.
Croatia have yet to face a side boasting any real creativity in the knockout stages and needed extra time to beat an England side who could muster only one shot on target from open play:
France have Antoine Griezmann, Olivier Giroud, Paul Pogba, Thomas Lemar, Ousmane Dembele, Nabil Fekir and Kylian Mbappe in their squad.
All those players are capable of troubling Croatia's defence, and Mbappe is sure to terrorise their centre-backs with his pace.
Unlike most other sides in the tournament, France also have a midfield to rival Croatia's enviable central trio of Modric, Rakitic and Marcelo Brozovic.
While Les Bleus will likely be happy to allow Croatia to have the ball in the middle of the park, Pogba, N'Golo Kante and Blaise Matuidi will not give them any time or space.
France are strong favourites for a reason. They have immense quality in their squad, boast defensive solidity and, while they may not have sparkled in this tournament as much as some might have expected them to, they have been ruthless.
Another quality performance in the final should see France have too much for Croatia.
Prediction: Kylian Mbappe and Olivier Giroud to score in a 2-0 win for France.
