France vs Croatia (By: TFB)
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.
