It started with 32 teams and now the 2018 World Cup is down to its final two.

Shearer took his criticism further, telling BBC : "There's no way a ridiculous decision like that should affect the result in a World Cup final". Croatia, a country that only gained independence in 1991, will be playing in their first.

They filled Nikolskaya Street in particular, which has become the unofficial center of fan activity at the World Cup, painting the Moscow town red and white. They're in great form and even though post Brazil, my son is looking out for a France victory, this World Cup is all about changing the order and we are rooting for the underdog. Along with other experienced analysts, Sumpter developed the powerful Soccerbot model.

The Soccerbot reads current odds and all team performance data, calculates key metrics and predicts upcoming matches. In almost three seasons since its inception, the Soccerbot is up an incredible 1,800 percent on bookmakers' closing odds. However, the knockout stages have put Croatia through the wringer.

The frenzy around FIFAfinal game between France and Croatia on Sunday, July 15, is only keeping football fans on their toes. In 1998, the country reached to the semi-finals only to be defeated by the host France. Anyone who has followed it is way, way up. It is 1-0 for France!

"It's a huge pleasure and privilege to play in such a match, there's nothing more lovely as a professional football player than to play in the World Cup final", he said.

Why can Croatia win the World cup?

Fans watch the closing ceremony of the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup ahead of the final football match between France and Croatia at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on July 15, 2018. The Croats came from behind and upset favored England in Wednesday's semifinal that was decided in extra time.

France opening the scoring with the first real chance of the final as Mario Mandzukic headed a free kick into his own net.

FRANCE 2, URUGUAY 0: Griezmann sets up one goal and scores another on a Uruguay goalkeeping gaffe, refusing to celebrate it because of his close club and personal ties to the South Americans. You also get the feeling that France have an extra gear to go into if they have to.

Compared to teams of old, this France side does not have any friction within the squad and Deschamps has picked a squad with a rich mix of youth and experience. For instance, I began the whole palaver firmly against the use of VAR after witnessing it trialled to questionable effect in Australia's A-League but after seeing its use refined as this World Cup has progressed I'm increasingly confident there's a worthwhile application not too far away. Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann support Olivier Giroud in attack in France's 4-2-3-1 formation, while Ivan Perisic and Ivan Strinic, who had been pre-match injury doubts, have been passed fit for Croatia.

So which hungry nation wins the World Cup final?
