  • GOALLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!! MANDZUKIC HEADS THE BALL INTO HIS OWN NET!!! FRANCE 1-0!!! A nightmare for Mandzukic as he guides the ball into the top corner from Griezmann's free-kick, handing France the lead. Griezmann's delivery was on the money as he curled his cross towards the back post. Croatia had a deep defensive line and Mandzukic's attempted header glanced the top of his head before flying past Subasic into the net.

  • GOALLLLLLLLLL!!!! PERISIC BLASTS CROATIA LEVEL!!!! 1-1!!! A super strike from Perisic levels the World Cup final. France failed to clear the danger from the resulting free-kick as Mandzukic then Vida knocked the ball towards the winger. He took time and space to pick his spot on his left foot before drilling his effort past Lloris. A special effort from Perisic. Game on.

  • GOALLLLLLLLLLL!!!! GRIEZMANN CONVERTS!!! 2-1!!! The forward holds his nerve from 12 yards as he slots his effort into the bottom corner with ease, sending Subasic the wrong way. Griezmann had a while to compose himself and he had no issue finding the net, allowing his side to regain the lead.

  • N'Zonzi comes on to the field to replace Kante, who has been strangely off the pace in the contest. He was on a booking and that may have also entered into Deschamps' decision to remove the midfielder from the action.

  • GOALLLLLLLLLL!!!! POGBA BLASTS HOME!!!! FRANCE 3-1!!!! Pogba has a World Cup moment as he hands France a two-goal cushion in the final. Mbappe's break down the right flank stretched the Croatia defence. A low ball into the box was worked back towards Pogba via a deflection. His effort was blocked by Vida, but it rebounded back towards the Manchester United midfielder. With his second drive on his left foot, he found the top corner. The France bench erupts. They're closing in now.

  • GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!! MBAPPE PUTS FRANCE ON THE BRINK!!! 4-1!!!! Mbappe surely puts the game out of Croatia's reach. He takes Hernandez's offload from the left flank and controls it in the middle of the park. From 25 yards he lets fly with a low strike that Vida fails to block and it moves past Subasic before the keeper can get down. France are on their way to lifting the World Cup.

  • GOALLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!! WHAT IS LLORIS DOING??? MANDZUKIC SCORES!! 4-2!!!! The crazy theme of the game continues as Lloris attempts to play out from the back on his own goalline. He takes too long to pass the ball to Umtiti and allows Mandzukic to make the closing interception, steering the ball into the net. Lloris has given Croatia hope here. He will be hopeful that does not cost his side.
