David vs Goliath in Sunday’s World Cup final

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The battle lines have been drawn in the 2018 FIFA World Cup final match.

France, who won the tournament on home soil in 1998, is up against Croatia who is in an unknown territory.

The best run by the Croats was winning the bronze medal in their first World Cup participation in 1998.

French and Croatian fans are counting down the hours until the main game of the 2018 FIFA World Cup – the final match.

With its population just above four million, Croatian fans see the game as a fight between David and Goliath.

Both set of fans are confident their teams would be victorious at the World Cup final on Sunday.

Croatian fan Denis Pulic says:”I know lots of small countries around the world, like us, you know, they want us to win, they support us. And that will be a big justice – once in a life that small guy beats a bigger guy, you know.”

 Croatia has no major injury concerns going into Sunday’s World Cup final despite having played three 120-minute matches.

This is Croatia’s first final in a major tournament.

The French, on the other hand, will be playing in their third World Cup final.

And they are determined not to make the same mistakes they made two years ago in losing in the Euro 2016 final.

In the knock-out rounds,  France brushed aside Argentina, Uruguay and Belgium without needing extra time or penalties.

France fan Alexandre Guillard says: “They are tired, they have had three matches with extra time, two penalty shoot-outs, we saw against England that they were really quite tired, so I think France is getting stronger and are a lot less tired, and I think it will be 3-0.”

 The World Cup final match kicks off at 5pm on Sunday.
