France win the World Cup: Les Bleus beat Croatia to win World Cup Final 2018

Didier Deschamps’ side came out victorious in a six-goal thriller, winning the Final 4-2, in a match that saw the first ever own goal and VAR-awarded penalty  in a World Cup Final, as well as a calamitous mistake from captain Hugo Lloris.

Goals from Antoine Griezman, Kylian Mbappe, Paul Pogba and an own goal from Mario Mandzukic won the match for the French, which saw Deschamps become only the second person in World Cup history to win the competition as both captain and manager.

Les Bleus faced Peru, Australia and Denmark in Group C, and progressed along with the latter following two wins and a draw.

France then beat Argentina 4-3 in a thrilling last-16 encounter before knocking out Uruguay with a 2-0 quarter-final win, and overcoming Belgium 1-0 in the semi-finals.
