On Sunday France and Croatia will battle it out for the most coveted trophy in world football, the 2018 FIFA World Cup!
However, the third-place play-off between Belgium and England will be played on Saturday, July 14. It will be an interesting encounter as the Three Lions hold a good record against their opponents. They have defeated the Red Devils 15 times out of their 21 meetings, though Belgium did defeat the English during the group stages of this year’s World Cup.
On Sunday, the spotlight will be on the finalists, France and Croatia. It is a bit of an unexpected final match as Croatia have battled their way to their first ever world cup final.
The French have reached the final in spectacular style, with 19-year-old Kylian Mbappe setting the stage alight. However, the Croatian team have the experience and with Luka Modric conducting the tempo, they will be aiming for glory!
