Hard to see past France for this but I’d love to see Croatia win it.


France route to the final:
Argentina 4-3
Uruguay 2-0
Belgium 1-0 

Winners in 98 and RU in 06. To think 20 years ago England had bragging rights over France (and Spain) as they won a WC.

Croatia route to the final:
Denmark 1:1 win on penos 
Russia 2:2 win on penos
England 2-1 after ET

In their first WC they made the semi finals in France with the hosts beating them 2-1.

Prediction France: 2-0

France 3-0. 

Will be as one sided as Euro 2012 final.

Croatia, aet or penos. They've proved to be a tenacious lot coming back  from behind three times in the KO stages. Modric was outstanding tonight.

Anonymous first half, best player on the pitch in the second.

Always shows for the ball, gives a perfect weight pass and tackled back ferociously when he lost one ball. Could make player of the tournament.

Should be player of the tournament, I just feel he was poor in the first half. He made up for it by running the show afterwards.

Croatia tried to be clever with their tactics and got found out in the first half. Changed it at half time and the game changed completely. You need Modric in the middle of the park on the ball pulling the strings, not ahead of the midfield trying to create chances.

Would like to see Mbappe get the winner.

He's been fantastic to watch this tournament

Would like to see Modric do it myself, one of my favourite players to watch. Plus, the riots in Belgrade will make for great television.

He is a fantastic all round player with none of the drama.

Like most would love to see Croatia win it, but can't see past France.

If France do win Mbappe hat trick and then he gets ballon d'or just to rub Neymars face in it would be hilarious

Can't see any way for Croatia to win.

France a better team on paper
France had the tougher route
Croatia played 3 extra times
Croatia's strength (Modric) is likely cancelled out by Kante

Would love to see Croatia win it. I'd give them a decent chance as well. France obviously favorites but Croatia certainly have the ability to do it.

Croatia have had such an easy route to the final.

Denmark, Russia and England would all be top 20 team in the World (I’m being generous there).
Has anybody ever got to a final recently and avoided a top 10 team? 

France have beaten Argentina, Uruguay and Belgium. I’d have Uruguay and Belgium as top 10.

Germany had a pretty easy route in 2002. Paraguay (I think), USA & South Korea.

Germans again in 86 - Morocco, Mexico before France in SF.
