France are World Cup 2018 winners. FIFA World Cup 2018 concluded on Sunday and it was France who lifted the trophy after 20 years as they defeated Croatia 4-2. France went into the half-time with a 2-1 lead over Croatia. France took the lead in the 18th minute, courtesy an own goal from Mario Mandzukic. Croatia didn’t waste much time and equalised the scoring as Perisic scored for them but France were right back with the lead after they were awarded a penalty.

Griezmann completed the penalty to put his side in front. The misery for Croatia continued in the second half as Paul Pogba scored France’s third and that was followed by a perfect strike from Mbappe. Later, Mandzukic gave Croatian fans something to cheer about as he scored their second goal thanks to a rare blunder from France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

The World Cup finals brought an end to arguably the biggest sporting event in the world and so reactions have come in from across the board.

This is France’s second World Cup title.
