So, finally, we have got the winners after a long, ecstatic and joyful journey of a month. The most surprising and unexpected thing happened in this world cup was Croatia’s entry to the finals. (Yeah, many has expected France to be one of the contenders).
Not only the contender, France has emerged as the winner of FIFA world cup 2018 as well.
The euphoric response of the fans and the reactions were a pleasure to watch. Didier Deschamps-celebrating the success with fans cutting in squares and streets of France.
But I would give a huge round of applause to Croatia. They have dominated the match and the entire game for a long time, resulting in immense pressure on their counterparts.
France Wins The FIFA World Cup 2018 by 4 – 2
Who gave France the win?
All played well but the goals from KylianMbappe, Paul Pogba, Antoine Griezmann, and Mario Mandzukic rose the temperature with their stunning performance.
The first half
Mario’s goal during the first half gave lead to France but Ivan Perisic goal for Croatia levelled it for the country. In half-time, France was on the lead due to a goal from Griezmann from the spot.
France maintained its lead during the second half as well, breaking the dream of Croatia to lift the World Cup trophy for the first time, lifting their second title since 1998.

Yes, when the fans started running towards the pitch at the beginning of the second half.
