#FRACRO: France become World Cup Champions

After 20 years, France once again are champions of the world as they defeated Croatia 4-2 to lift the Russia 2018  FIFA World Cup, in what might go down as one of the best final in the World Cup history.
An own goal from Mario Mandzukic gave France the lead but a brilliant strike from Ivan Perisic leveled it but seven minutes before half-time, referee Nestor Pitana controversially awarded a spot-kick for a handball by Perisic after consulting pitch-side replays, which Griezmann stuck away.

Second-half goals from Paul Pogba and Kylian Mbappé took the game away from Croatia, who did score a comical consolation through Mandzukic after a Hugo Lloris error.

The victory means France boss Didier Deschamps becomes the third person to lift the trophy as a player and manager, following Mario Zagallo and Franz Beckenbauer.
