Croatia look to defy all the odds and win their first ever World Cup title when they face the young guns of France, who are aiming for their first World Cup win since they hosted the tournament in 1998.
France were always expected to make a deep run at this tournament, and it’s no surprise given the breadth of talent at their disposal. They have world class talent from back to front, and while they haven’t been as dazzling as many had hoped for, they have certainly shown that they know how to win.
Croatia’s golden age is coming to an end, but Luka Modric has been determined to drive his nation to success in what is likely to be his final World Cup. The Real Madrid midfielder has been a leader for Croatia, and he showed exactly why he is so good on Wednesday as he picked his side up in the second half.
As far as the overall game goes we can see it being an edgy one, as it regularly is in the final. In the end we don’t expect France to make the same mistakes as England did though, and backing them to get the win in normal time looks a good choice along with a 2-0 correct score predictions.
