Things didn’t go as we all expect in today’s final match, we all know the France first 11 team has the upper hand and the best chance to win the Russia 2018 final match which ended few minutes ago but the score that ended the match wasn’t the one we expect.
The first half ended with a 2 goals to 1 in favor of France as everyone hopes the second half will bring out something different, the first player to open the score board was Croatia‘s forward, Mario Mandzuki who scored a own goal in favour of France at the 18th minute of the first half.
The equalizer came from Croatia’s Ivan Perisic at the 28th minute while the 2nd goal came from Antoine Griezmann at the 38th minute, it was a penalty kick awarded to the France national team.
However, the second half didn’t end as we all think it would as the French side added another 2 goals consecutively making it a thrilling 4-1 on the scoreboard, Paul Pogba made it 3 with a 59th minute goal while Kylian Mbape made it 4 at the 65th minute.
Mario Mandzukic of Croatia also did his part by changing their own scoreline to 2 with a 69th minute which made all Croatia fans still have hope maybe a draw can happen before the full 90 minutes but it was only a dream that doesn’t come true because the match ended at that 4-2 win that favoured the French national team, we can’t call this their victory a luck or fluke cos it was well deserved.
The game ended with a good fair play grade with only 2 yellow cards from the France players. Above 78,000 spectators watched the match live on the pitch.
