France vs Croatia
The World Cup final takes place on Sunday with favourites France playing Croatia.
France have certainly been the best team at this year's World Cup and have had a fairly straight forward path to the final. The coasted through their group without pulling up any trees but since the knockout stages they have certainly gone up a gear. They were impressive in beating Argentina 4-2, had a fairly comfotable 2-0 win over Uruguay and managed to keep Belgium's stars at bay in a 1-0 win.
Kylian Mbappe has been excellent this World Cup, possibly player of the tournament and if he turns up Croatia will have a big problem to deal with.
Croatia have also done well but they have struggled to put opponents away in the knockout stages. 3 knockout games have resulted in 3 extra-time periods and 2 penalty shoot-outs. In total they have played a full game more than France with 90 minutes of extra time in total.
France will be their biggest test yet and possibly a step too far for Croatia's modern golden generation.
