    World cup final 2018 croatia v france

    Who'd have thunk it?

    Not sure who I want to win this one. You'd say man-for-man France is the stronger team and IMO everything points to their victory.

    However, this is the WC of surprises and you can't rule out Croatia, who have some quality players too. But are they [email protected] out now? Can they
    raise their game once again? But will Lovren be able to handle Mbappe, or will he even get a red card?

    If I had to bet I'd go 3-1 scoreline for France, but that might be the kiss of death for them.

    Lets hope it's a game worthy of the Final.

    Bet Belgium are kicking themselves now for winning that group game against us and ending up with the harder route to the final.I would have fancied them against both teams.
    As it is , I couldn't give a #### now either way.

    Croatia in full-on siege mentally mode at the moment. Like Italy 2006. All sorts of Croatian FA fraud/corruption 'shenanigans' off the pitch. Court cases etc. Really playing up the "small ickle team from small ickle country of 4m people" . "Everyone underestimates us" (even though many do actually rate them) etc etc . They also have some brilliant players, which always helps....... Not to mention the notorious 'Balkan spirit'. Very very dangerous combination.

    Tiredness shouldn't be a factor in these tournaments. You just do lighter training in between games if you go to extra time. They're battle hardened and supremely fit.

    Can't work out France (quelle surprise). Rotten one game. Excellent the next. Their defence looked superb against Belgium but they conceded 3 against Argentina.

    France wilted and choked in 2016 final. Couldn't beat a Ronaldo-less Portugal at home. In theory, they should learn from that but they're still a relatively young and inexperienced side. Croatia have more experience. We may well see some $hithousery...........

    France 'should' win.

    Mbappe has had a big smile on his face since lining up in the tunnel. Love it

    According to the commentator the first own goal ever scored in a WC Final. Surprising
