Luka Modric proved his absolute class in the semi-final victory for Croatia over England, while France have been relying on the mercurial attacking talents of Kylian Mbappe throughout proceedings so far. It could well come down to one of these players in terms of who gets their hands on the grandest trophy in the sport this weekend.

In what is a highly fascinating final match-up, Les Bleus are the obvious odds-on 10/11 front runners with Paddy Power to triumph for the first time since 1998, while Croatia are 18/5 underdogs with Ladbrokes to win their maiden World Cup honour.

Head to head

These two countries have met on five occasions before this final clash and Croatia hold a very poor fixture record. In those five previous meetings France have come out on the winning side three times, while two games have ended level.
