A thrilling World Cup came to its conclusion as France beat Croatia in Sunday's final in Moscow, but there have been plenty of unusual incidents on the pitch and on the sidelines in Russian Federation.

This is the first time Croatia has ever appeared in a World Cup final.

Earlier in the day, the national team of France defeated Croatia 4-2 in the 2018 FIFA World Cup final match in Moscow to snatch its second World Cup Trophy.

Antoine Griezmann was the standout in blue according to L'Equipe with the Atletico forward getting an eight, as fellow goalscorers Kylian Mbappé and Paul Pogba both received sevens for their contributions.

According to USA Today, Mbappe, who scored four goals this year for France, chose to donate his earnings from the tournament to a charity that gives free sports instruction to hospitalised and disabled children in sports, Premiers de Cordee.

The World Cup offers the flawless chance to put things right though, and the thought of losing two consecutive major finals is devastating enough.

Umititi though chose to laud Paul's leadership skills instead and recognised how he's developed within the World Cup games itself. England flew back into Birmingham on Sunday having finished fourth in the World Cup in Russian Federation .

"I respect France but Croatia, it's in my heart".

Varane came to the World Cup having just won his fourth Champions League medal with Real Madrid.

"But our coach and young players did it!"

The players argued about who should get the ball afterward, with Croatia keeping possession but failing to do anything.

"I usually don't really follow football but I'm euphoric because we're a small country, going through some rough things, the country is a bit divided but football is something right now that will bring us all together". Of them, only Forlan's team (Uruguay) failed to finish in second place. "It is marvelous. We did not play a great match, but we showed a strong mental quality", Deschamps said.
