It comes down to this: France and Croatia. Croatia is in their first World Cup final, going through three extra-time sessions in their matches (they won all three). France faced stiffer competition, beating the likes of Belgium and Argentina to make it.
France has many weapons at its arsenal. From Antoine Grizemann to Olivier Giroud to Paul Pogba, this team can score at will. One worry about France has been motivation, for their letdown at Euro 2016 was a low point for the squad.
Croatia is happy to be in the moment, for they've never been here before. Their midfield play, led by Luka Modric, is on par with some of the best. Also, the Croatian team has had plenty of good fortune, facing a weaker bracket compared to France.
Who will win this match-up? If France can stay motivated, they shouldn't have many problems. If France wants to, they should use the Euro 2016 performance as a reference and motivation. This is Croatia's first foray in the World Cup Final, but they might want more. Still, I like France, 3-1.
My life! Food, sports, school. It's what it is!
