France winger Kylian Mbappe wins Sky Sports World Cup Power Rankings

Croatia’s bid for World Cup final glory is against their conquerors in 1998

Pogba's 59 minute strike saw him become the first United player to score in a World Cup final, capping a superb campaign in Russian Federation following a somewhat hard 2017-18 season with his club back in Manchester.

Despite having played 90 extra minutes than Les Bleus over the course of the tournament in three periods of extra time, and having a day's less rest before the final, Croatia dominated the first-half.

While waiting for the presentation, Griezmann burst into tears, seemingly as the enormity of his team's achievement swept over him, and while a rainstorm soaked the Luzhniki arena, the player embraced French president Emmanuel Macron who kissed his forehead and clasped his shoulders. France accidentally took over and then luckily came to another goal.

Perisic deservedly equalised and Griezmann's penalty was France's first shot on target.

Team-mate Antoine Griezmann (No 6) converted a controversial penalty in the final - awarded after consultation with VAR - to put France 2-1 up, while Paul Pogba (No 8) handed them a two-goal advantage from outside the box.

"On our bus there is a slogan: "small country with big dreams". You have to believe it's possible. At 4-1 down I was not defeated.

"I would like to thank all my players for what they have done". I am very proud of this team, the players, the coach, the staff. "Welcome to the club, Kylian Mbappe - it's great to have some company!"

"That's another commendation for the team".

However, the 51-year-old was able to steady the ship - a 4-1 aggregate win over Greece in the playoffs sent them to Russian Federation.

Dalic was drafted in as coach in October when Croatia were in danger of not even making it to Russian Federation before their final qualifier.
