A month on and 63 games later, the 2018 World Cup reaches its climax tomorrow as a young France side spearheaded by Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann look to win the trophy for the second time when they take on Croatia in Moscow. A gifted French side with the second-youngest squad at the tournament, embodied by the lightning-quick Mbappe, who face a Croatian team inspired by Luka Modric, arguably the finest midfielder in the world at the moment.
It is just the second time that none of Brazil, Germany, Italy or Argentina have made it to the final, after Spain’s win over the Netherlands in 2010. A tournament that will be remembered for the colourful presence of hordes of Latin American supporters has a final between two European sides after the continent exerted its power in the latter stages.
But this is still the World Cup final, and for France there is the possibility to join Argentina and Uruguay in winning the trophy for the second time, after 1998.
The FIFA world cup final 2018 match between France and Croatia is going to take place on July 15, 2018. it will be played at Luzhniki Stadium, Moscow at 8.30 PM IST.
