I'm hoping Croatia because I like variety and underdog stories, and also because France gave us the only 0-0 in the World Cup so I don't like that.
However I guess France will win, they have played great football and I suppose Croatia must be quite tired after three extra times. they will fight but lose, hope I'm wrong.
It was a sorry World Cup for Africa and South America and even Latin football proved to be severely lacking in terms of efficiency and rigor... Anyway, bravo la France and congrats to Deschamps!
It was an entertaining final match, and I was grateful for that. Often the last matches become quite boring as teams rather avoid mistakes than giving all they have, this was different and I would like it to be the rule.
France is a good champion, they were clearly the best teams in many of their matches, and they showed a good team in all their lines, and the talent to defeat all kind of opponets. However I don't like the faxt that the advantage they got in the final match was due to two dubious referee decissions, a free kick where there was no foul and a penalty that most would have not awarded.
Croatia should ended the first half winning, and then the second half would had been different.
However in the second half it was clear France was the best team, they could score more than they did and they totally controled a croatian side that keep the hunger but lost the dominion.
In general it was an entertaining World Cup, lets hope 2022 is like this one, it will probably be the last chance to see a good tournament before the absurd decission to have 48 participants probably ruins the World Cup in 2026.
