CRO vs FRA Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
The clock started ticking for the final showdown in Moscow when 1998 FIFA World Cup winners France will take on Croatia, who would be making their first world cup final appearance on Sunday. There were a lot of speculations with the Croatians before they headed into the semi final against England due to the fatigue, their players got in previous matches and it was all proved wrong as Croatia won the third game in a row in extra time. The golden generation of Croatia might come to an end after this world cup and this is the best chance they have got so far to win the world cup. Though their fight won’t be easy but they would want to see France eye to eye as they walk out of the pavilion. The one thing that would give them the entire boost for this game is that how they resurrected themselves in the last three matches after trailing back on the scoreboard.
With the likes of Luka Modric, Ivan Rakitic, Ivan Perisic and Mario Mandzukic all coming together for this game, the Croats will start as underdogs in this game. The former world champions France remains the only team that seemed to go till the end when the world cup started and France delivered a win at every step. They may not have been in their mesmerizing form in the world cup but they did rise up to the occasions when needed. They beat Argentina, 4-3 in the Round of 16 and went on to meet the Uruguayans in the Quarter final. From there they went to take on the Red Devils in the semi final and now they are here, in Moscow to win their second ever world cup.
The journey of Croatia in this world cup had been a tough one from the start. Croatia was clubbed with Argentina, Nigeria and Iceland and Croatia won all the three games in the group stages to find Denmark in the Round of 16. After beating the Danes, they head into the quarter finals where they met with Russia. The host nation surprised everyone by reaching the quarter finals eliminating teams like Spain and Egypt from the world cup. Croatia would now believe that they can do the impossible if they can see through France.
However, going through France’s defense had been a tough in the knockout stages. France not only won their last three knockout games but also kept two clean sheets in their last two games, which they would be eyeing to do in the final as well. Both these teams are balanced and have enough firepower to take the country through.
FIFA World Cup 2018, Final is to be played at Stadion Luzhniki, Moscow at 1600 hours in Local time. A thrilling game awaits everyone on Match Day 31 for everyone and can be watched live on Sony LIV.
