Location: Lushniki Stadium
The 2018 World Cup comes to a thrilling conclusion as France and Croatia collide in the final this Sunday. The greatest prize in football is potentially only 90 minutes away for either of these impressive nations, after battling through to this stage in their respective campaign.
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.
