Karl Matchett

The 2018 World Cup Final is finally here and it's France vs. Croatia for a place in history. France won the 1998 edition on home soil and enter this year's decider as firm favourites but Croatia dispatched England in their semi-final and are not to be overlooked. Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic will hope to lead Croatia to a first ever triumph while Paul Pogba and Antoine Griezmann are key to France's hopes.
