In an epic battle, France lifted their second World Cup title after beating Croatia 4-2 in the final in Moscow. In the nail-bitting finish, one of world’s oldest nation and a country that became independent less than 30 years ago. Even though Croatia evolved as the dark horse of the tournament, they could not take the trophy back home.
France scored two goals in either half including a penalty. Antoine Griezmann converted a spot kick in the first half to give France a 2-1 lead which Pogba extended to 3-1. And teenager Mbappe scored the brilliant fourth goal from outside the box to make sure they emerge as the champion. And even though Croatia lost the game, they won hearts online.
