In the eighth match, he had a difficult victory against Denmark, who finally won the penalty shootout 3-for-2.

The match had started with goals from both sides, Mathias Jørgensen (1 ') and from Croatia at 14' through Mario Mandzukic, draw to the end, and when the second half ended Croatia had the chance to win the game by of a penalty that Luka Modric charged but that was counting in great form by the goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.

The match as indicated was defined by penalties, winning the Croatians 3-2 where the figure was his goalkeeper Danijel Subasic to stop three penalties of Christian Eriksen, Lasse Schöne and Nicolai Jørgensen.

In the quarterfinal match against the host team Russia, she survived again a definition from the penalty points of the penalties, winning it by 4-3.

The match culminated in a draw in the regulation time (1-1), with goals from Andrej Kramaric (39 ') and Russia's Denis Cheryshev (31'), the extra time of the game culminated (2-2) adding to the score Croatia first by means of Domagoj Vida (101 '), to tie the commitment again the Brazilian nationalized Mário Fernandes (115')

The most valuable player of that match was without question the Croatian goalkeeper Danijel Subasic who had 5 spectacular saves, who also stopped the first shot in the penalty shootout.

In the semifinal match he defeated the England national team against all odds, the game ended 1-1, England had started with Kieran Trippier's shooting goal in the 5 minutes, tied the calves to the Ivan Perisic at 68 minutes.
In the extra time, he manages to win with Mario Mandzukic's goal at 109 minutes

In this way Croatia in this World Cup has 4 victories, two draws, no defeats, with 12 goals in favor and 5 against, in their six matches played.

Their goalscorers until now are Ante Rebic (3), Ivan Perisic (2), Mario Mandzukic (2), Ivan Rakitic (1), Milan Badelj (1), Andrej Kramaric (1) and Domagoj Vida (1).

Now let's talk about the match of the final, France hopes to improve on its last World Cup participation in Brazil 2014 when it fell in the quarterfinals against Germany 1-0.

Because of its tradition in the world championships it is favorite, two aspects that favor it, the first is that it has a young selection (like that of England) with an average of 26 years, combines the experience of Antoine Griezmann, Paul Pobba, Olivier Giroud, talented as Dembélé and Raphaël Varane, in second place has a young star Kylian Mbappé who at only 19 years has been able to take on the shoulder in moments that require it, such as the one presented in the match in the second round against Argentina that reversed his goals the disadvantage that his country had.

France, which was the protagonist of the first match of a World Cup, the 64th World Cup match of Russia 2018, will be the 900th match.

Croatia will have the chance to play its first final of a world championship against a France that wants a new victory like the one they won at the 1998 France World Cup and have two stars to their national shirt.

It is a very unequal ending, nothing in common, because France is veteran against youth and imputes Crocia, touch, tranquility and pause versus strength, muscle and speed.

France will play its third final of a World Cup of the last six, Croatia does not have a clear advantage.

Another advantage France has not needed extra time to reach the final, while Croatia is the first team to reach the final in a world cup after having played the matches of the round, quarter and semi-finals in overtime for ties, the first two wins in the penalty shootout and the last having scored a goal.

Thus things Croatia reaches the final having run one more match, that is 679.36 minutes for the 580.36 minutes that the French have run. In other words, 723.95 km for 607.50 km.

But beware, the French must know that England was disappointed to believe that Croatia would not stand the wear of the semifinal match, but the English in the time of discount were even more tired than the crotches.

Everything is already served, we will have a new world champion in hours, get comfortable to see the best match ... enjoy it!
