.AD  .

Croatia and France will face off for the biggest prize in football as the two European nations meet in the World Cup Final.

France overcame Belgium 1-0 in the semi-finals, with Samuel Umtiti securing a 1-0 victory as the Red Devils were unable to find a way through the dogged defence of Les Bleus.

Croatia, meanwhile, showed great resolve to battle back from a goal down against England to eventually win 2-1 in extra time courtesy of a Mario Mandzukic volley.

France vs Croatia  Prediction, betting odds and tips, squads, TV channel and live stream details for World Cup 2018 Final.

The two nations meet for the first time since Brazil suffered home embarrassment in the 2014 World Cup

The two nations have met five times, and Croatia have never beaten France.

Their first meeting came at the 1998 World Cup, with Les Bleus winning 2-1 in the semi-finals en route to lifting the famous trophy on home soil.

France then won friendlies in 1999 (3-0) and 2000 (2-0).

Possible Starting Lineup:
Antoine Griezmann is the star striker upfront who finished are a top goal scorer in Euro 2018 and hitting the form just at the right time going into the world cup. 

He will be supported by Kylian Mbappé and Lacazatte/Thomas Lemar in a three-man attack. Paul Pogba, Adrien Rabiot, and N’Golo Kante are set to start in midfield roles. 

Start time
France takes on Croatia at Saint Petersburg on Sunday, July 15, with kick-off scheduled for 4pm BST.

TV and live stream online coverage

The match will be televised live on BT Sport 2, with coverage starting from 7.30pm. BT Sports subscribers will be able to stream the match online via the video player and the BT Sports app.

Alternatively, you can keep up to date with all of the action with New Gersy blog.

Predicted starting line-ups
Croatia: Subasic, Vrsaljko, Lovren, Vida, Strinic, Rakitic, Brozovic, Rebic, Modric, Perisic, Mandzukic

France: Lloris; Pavard, Varane, Kimpembe, Hernandez; Pogba, Kante, Tolisso; Fekir, Griezmann, Lemar

As far as defense is concerned, Laurent Koscielny is likely to start alongside Rafael Verane in central defense.

Benjamin Mendy would have been the first choice but considering he has been out for long due to injury we can expect PSG’s Layvin Kurzawa to start at left back or even Barcelona’s Samuel Umtiti with Sidibe to start at right back. Hugo Lloris to captain France in the World cup 2018.

Youngsters to watch out for: Kylian Mbappé and Ousmane Dembele

Mbappe might have completed his permanent deal to PSG by the time he boards the plane for Russia and he will be the key player for France with his pace and trickery. Ousmane Dembele is another one who might not start every game but when called upon should take his chances.

France Schedule of World Cup 2018:

France play their first match of the world cup against the (Aussies) on 16th June. The other two teams in their group are Denmark and Peru who will be a tough competition for them. On 26th June the team of France will play their final match of the group stage.

Team News
France and Belgium have a long history, facing each other 73 times.

France have won 24 of those meetings, but Belgium have recorded 30 victories, with 19 draws between them.

However, their last two meetings have ended in draws - a 2-2 draw at Euro 2004, and a goalless stalemate in 2011.

Neither side will have any players suspended for the final, while the French squad has a clean bill of health.

It may be a different matter for Croatia though, with plenty of players feeling the strain after every one of their knockout games has gone to extra time - Ivan Strinic may well be a doubt after limping off with what appeared to be a groin issue in extra time against England.

France vs Australia – 16 June 2018 2-1
France vs Peru – 21 June 2018 1-0
Denmark vs France – 26 June 2018 0-0
