Why Croatia can win the World Cup Final against France

The 2018 FIFA World Cup Finals are set, with France and Croatia ready to face off July 15 for the ultimate title in soccer.

It was a message that drew a hugely positive response from Pogba's vast army of social media followers on Instagram and Twitter, with the Manchester United midfielder striking a humble tone after one of the best nights of his career.

"We are winning. It's always nice to win and to hear good things about the team, about yourself and everything". "It's a great honour for all the players and the supporters, and I don't think we're really aware of the scale of it just yet".

"FIFA's priority remains the health of everyone involved in the operation and we will look into finding a new opportunity to invite the boys to a Federation Internationale de Football Association event to share with them a moment of communion and celebration", a Federation Internationale de Football Association spokesman said.

'I am not going to lie. Croatia had prevailed on penalties in both the last 16 and the quarter-finals, defeating Denmark and then tournament hosts Russian Federation.

The 43-year-old officiated the tournament's opening game between Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia and was in charge for France's quarter-final victory over Uruguay, as well as Croatia's last-16 clash with Denmark.

Asked why his side had won, Dalic said: "Because we were the better team in all segments of the game".

"There's no weakness in a team that is in the final". Blanc wasn't able to play the final match that year after receiving a red card in the semifinal. Before the tournament started, there were doubts over us. We are not thinking about being favourites.

But there is still one more match to go for the Three Lions. They have done very well and they want the victory, like us.

Both teams are in their second third-place match, Belgium having lost to France in 1986 and England to Italy four years later. We have no doubts, we play together, that's our strength. It's on the shirt, but I did not win it.
