Viewing of World Cup Final at Pula Arena

Didier Deschamps Manager of France celebrates victory in the 2018 FIFA World Cup Final against Croatia_Getty

For France, in theory, Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann are in the race. N'golo Kante, you'll score.

Olivier Giroud could be the key man.

The incident arose when Griezmann drove in a corner and, as Perisic jumped with Blaise Matuidi, the ball made contact with the hand of the Croatia winger.

France´s forward Antoine Griezmann holds a press conference in Istra on July 13, 2018, two days before the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup final between France and Croatia.

It should all add up to Lloris lifting the gold trophy on Sunday at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.

France scored twice in each half as they thumped a combative Croatia 4-2 in a dramatic final to win the FIFA World Cup for the second time in 20 years on Sunday. Many fans were backing Croatia, which played in the final for its first time ever.

That goal eventually did not matter, as Didier Deschamps's side won the match, but it did not stop former Liverpool and England global defender Carragher from giving his take on Lloris's mistake.

Seeing how the World Cup has gone, no one can rule out the justice of this final: the most competitive team (Croatia) against the side with the best players (France).

France progressed into the knockout stages of the tournament as Group C winners, however, before an emphatic 4-3 victory over Lionel Messi's Argentina in the round of 16. In the 38th minute, the 27-year-old forward scored, setting the score of 2-1. He can also chip in with important goals as he did when he opened the scoring against Uruguay. In particular, Kylian Mbappe has great speed and is very deadly with the ball in the box. We have nine players who were there at the Euros and what happened then should make us grow.

"I have never seen and never lived through such a World Cup because there was a levelling towards the top and the small teams on paper really really well prepared and with defensive systems that of course are easy to implement but that did hurt other nations", Deschamps said. We are many players with different backgrounds, but we have the same goal, we wear the same jersey, we work for each other.

France manager Didier Deschamps was left soaked in beer, champagne and sweat after celebrating World Cup glory with his delirious squad - a moment he will cherish alongside the crowning achievement of his playing career. As always, the game has triggered many reactions on social media. Both are strong in the air, with Varane scoring a header against Uruguay and Umtiti heading in the victor against Belgium.

"With France passing all these laws against Islamic practices, let's not forget it's these same Muslims players who helped win #WorldCup2018", one Twitter user wrote.
