French ace wins World Cup Young Player award

French ace wins World Cup Young Player award

They conceded first in all three of their knockout games, but came back to win each time, showing great teamwork and semangat (fighting spirit).

"But what the players did today is just as lovely and just as strong".

Croatia equalized shortly after, but France benefited from VAR later in the half, when Ivan Perisic was deemed to have handled the ball in the box.

With big-game experience as a Champions League victor with Real Madrid, Varane has increasingly become a team leader.

The World Cup final itself is a big achievement for them, an incredible feeling that the entire country will cherish. Subscribe to our SMS sports service by texting "SPORTS" to 22840.

Only after dispatching a poor Argentina at the second round that fans sat up to notice a French side that was gathering steam towards a fourth final. "It was a very hard match, Croatia had a great game". Luka Modric has been outstanding for Croatia, and I could see him taking the prize if Croatia pulled the upset.

Coach Zlatko Dalic said his players should be proud of their achievements.

Mario Zagallo, a two-time World Cup victor as a Brazil player having lifted the trophy in both 1958 and 1962, managed the feat by then leading his country to glory as a manager in 1970.

It was a sharp climb down from the ante Croatia had set having taken the game by the scruff of its neck from kick off. His shot deflected to Mbappe in the area who slotted the goal home but his shot didn't count as being on target. Sergio Ramos is the main man defensively for Real Madrid but when it comes to France it's all about Varane, he is a leader at the back and often makes towering headed clearances to help his team out.

New round of tariffs targets $200 billion of Chinese goods
Senate Finance Committee chairman Orrin Hatch, a Republican, said the move "appears reckless and is not a targeted approach". That prompted fears Beijing might go beyond matching US import tax increases by harassing American companies in China.

It was also Griezmann's corner which created the solitary goal in France's semi-final victory over Belgium.

Upon VAR review Pitana awarded the decision, as Antionne Girezmann made no mistake from the spot.

However, France had different ideas, quickly wrestling the game out Croatia's hands through quick fire goals from Pogba and Mbappe.

France dictated the pace of the game with Griezmann's speed troubling the plucky Croats.

He was mentioned above, but Danijel Subasic has been an absolute monster in goal for Croatia.

They planned to spend the rest of the day celebrating with other members of the local French community, which numbers approximately 57,000.

After France's win, US President Donald Trump sent his congratulations.

The 19-year-old has been a pivotal part of the France World Cup team that will meet Croatia in Sunday's final at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium. Progress has not always been smooth, with France nearly losing to Ukraine in a play-off in qualifying for the 2014 World Cup, before eventually going out to Germany in the quarter-finals.

Neville admitted the penalty call left "a bit of a cloud" over the result but was in no doubt that France deserved their second World Cup crown.
