France 'in a bubble' to play ideal final

FIFA World Cup- Third  Fourth Place Play Off- Holland v Croatia- Parc des Princes Paris- 11/7/98

Bets are stacked high so much so recently $1.5 billion in cryptocurrencies have been caught in a gambling ring in China only.

One is the epitome of a workhorse who can run all day long to get the job done.

It is there that France and Croatia will contest an unprecedented final in the history of the World Cup. Fans are going insane and the bettings are piled up. Which country is going to lift the prestigious cup this time? Perhaps it's my Chelsea blue showing, but N'golo Kante has been the best player of the tournament from start to finish.

Croatia represent one of the most moving stories in sport and are aiming to give it a happy ending with a victory.

The recent World Cup tradition is for presidents of Federation Internationale de Football Association and the host nation to jointly hand over the gold-and-malachite trophy.

Zlatko Dalic's team are clear underdogs going into the final with France, but they can take some definite encouragement from this little nugget: Since 1958, there's been a first-time World Cup victor every 20 years. Inside the centre, cheers were deafening when Croatia scored their first goal to briefly tie the game at 1-1. Tonight is the final face-off between 1998 World Cup victor France and the underdog Croatian team, who have won many a hearts. It's the biggest game in World football, and we will have you covered all the way on the beIN SPORTS website, with a live match stream, Live Highlights of the goals as they go in, and all the reaction from our pundits and the players. However, the knockout stages have put Croatia through the wringer.

And they have the variables of Kylian Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann and Olivier Groud to trouble the Croatia backline more consistently then Denmark, Russia and England managed to do. France beat Belgium 1-0 in the semi-final with a Samuel Umtiti goal in the second half.

Porte crashes out of Tour de France
Germany's Andre Greipel, and Slovakia's Peter Sagan , sprint to cross the finish line on the eighth stage of the Tour de France . Four-time victor Chris Froome remained over a minute behind Van Avermaet, a support rider for BMC leading hope Richie Porte .

Deschamps' team is loaded with talent for the final - his squad boasts some of the top players in the world and is well-represented throughout Europe's top leagues - but they still aren't the continent's best when it comes to reaching major tournament finals, trailing both Germany, with 14, and Italy, with nine. France will be gunning for its second World Cup title, while Croatia could become just the ninth team to ever take home the trophy, and the second smallest country to win it all.

Against Croatia, picking Mendy and Sidibié would increase France's chance of conceding a goal by three percentage points, but also increase their chance of scoring by four percentage points, a net gain. In 1998, the country reached to the semi-finals only to be defeated by the host France. This time, during the entire journey, Croatia has been playing really good.

Croatia made a strong game by defeating Nigeria and Argentina by 2-0 and 3-0 respectively. In eight matches in the black and navy blue kit, Croatia has won 7 (Mexico, Senegal, Argentina, Iceland, Russia, Denmark and England) and lost just once (Peru). However, in the end, it did win. With wins against teams like Argentina, England, and Russian Federation, they have good odds in favor of them.

The two teams are set to face off at 11 a.m. ET at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium.

Both the teams will be entering the battleground tomorrow and fans are all amped up with enthusiasm. The author or the publication does not hold any responsibility for your personal financial loss.
