And this scheme almost worked, but the guys of Zlatko Dalich sometimes could not cope with the ball. And Croatia's starting attack came to an end with the goal of Manjukic.
After the score in the match became equal again, the game calmed down a bit. But even from this calmness the French players managed to get a positive result. Argentine referee Nestor Petana appointed a penalty. Griezmann came to the ball and scored a goal.
At the beginning of the second half, Croats created several more potentially dangerous moments. But Mbappe received the ball on the right flank, Griezmann. Antoine thought about what to do with the ball. Midfielder of Manchester United on the first attempt couldn't break through the defense but with the second attempt he did it!
Then the French only developed their success. They caught the opponent with another counterattack, which Kylian Mbappe completed with a distant blow from behind the semicircle.
The remaining time Croats diligently, but to no avail pressed on the opponent's gate. So, the match logically ended with the victory of France, which won its second world title.
