France and Croatia will do battle for the ultimate prize in world football when they go head-to-head in the 2018 World Cup final this afternoon.
The match is scheduled to get underway at 17h00.
France enter the final as favourites after dispatching the likes of Argentina, Uruguay and Belgium in the previous rounds.
Les Blues will undoubtedly be looking to Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann to get the goals, with both players registering three goals each.
Didier Deschamps could become only the third man in the history of the World Cup - after Mario Zagallo and Franz Beckenbauer - to lift the trophy as a player and coach.
Deschamps was the captain when France secured their only World Cup title in 1998.
Zlatko Dalic’s charges, meanwhile, have been severely tested in the knockout rounds, needing extra-time or penalties in all their knockout matches en route to the final.
The Croats needed penalties to get over Denmark and Russia in the round of 16 and quarter-finals respectively, while they dispatched England 2-1 in extra-time in the semi-finals.
These two sides clashed in the semi-finals of that 1998 World Cup, where a ten-man Les Blues side claimed a 2-1 win.
Here's how they line up:
France: Lloris - Pavard, Varane, Umtiti, Hernandez - Pogba, Kanté - Mbappé, Griezmann, Matuidi - Giroud.
Croatia: Subasic, Vrsaljko, Lovren, Vida, Strinic, Rakitic, Modric, Brozovic, Perisic, Mandzukic, Rebic.
