Paul Pogba set to break 52-year record in World Cup final

The final will require a level-headed referee to overlook the game and Federation Internationale de Football Association have chosen an experienced official who has already taken charge of eight World Cup matches in the past.

"We've had a wonderful experience and I think all our supporters have as well". They will concede and say they are not fit.

"We have some minor injuries, minor problems, and I hope my players will be ready".

In the initial matches of 2018 world cup game, France started the game at a much slower pace but did beat Peru and Australia. "That will not happen again".

After winning all three group games, outclassing Argentina, they have beaten Denmark and Russian Federation on penalties and defeated England in extra-time in the semi-finals. Both teams won their groups, with France earning seven points (two wins, one draw) and Croatia finishing with nine (three wins).

"The Croats had a very hard match and they were behind".

Larry Merritt, a fire department spokesman, said the man was taken to Jackson Park Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. After nightfall, protesters continued to mill around the neighbourhood with police occasionally chasing them away.

Antonio Conte no longer Chelsea head coach
The Italian was informed of his departure on Thursday, with former Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri set to replace him. They finished way behind champions Manchester City and failed to qualify for the Champions League.

I wouldn't say that I'm young but I'm not old, yet, and we are going through nice things and want to finish it. We did not forget the doubts about us at the beginning of the competition, about our ability to play together.

Croatia will go into the match fearless, and with Modric, Ivan Perisic and Mario Mandzukic in the side they have the weapons to hurt France.

Croatia has overcome extra-time and penalties in their last three knockout games and will have the faith the World Cup is only 90 minutes away. The biggest names have been with us in the studio, from Paul Scholes, Arsene Wenger, Yaya Toure and Gilberto Silva (my personal favourite) this snappy video should give you an idea of how it went down!

After a thrilling tournament in Russian Federation, the World Cup final is finally upon us.

Deschamps' side hasn't been the most pleasing to watch - they have often been conservative and have been proactive to curtail their opponents' strengths rather than play to their own - but the former Marseille coach has managed to put together a highly effective unit that has kept the discipline. We are chasing something and will do everything to succeed. Another big effort in the final could solidify his place as one of the world's next big superstars, winning the World Cup title that's eluded the likes of Neymar, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in their respective careers.

France's defense can play the major factor in its win as only 4 goals have been scored against them throughout the tournament. But I have no star either although there is one on my shirt.

Modric has been at the heart of just about everything that Croatia have done at FIFA World Cup 2018. This will see Ivan Rakitic play in a box-to-box role while freeing up Luka Modric to play in an advanced role. I can't make comparisons, I can't talk to them about players from 20 years ago or even 10 years ago. We need to perform at a high level and deliver a flawless match to win.
