SPORT UPDATE: france Become World Champions with 4-2 with Croatia



Summary

France hold a 2-1 lead at half-time in the World Cup final over Croatia, despite being far from their best. Les Bleus’ two goals have come from set-pieces as Mario Mandzukic became the first player to score an own goal in the World Cup final. Ivan Perisic brought Croatia level with a crisp strike on his left foot. However, he was then the villian as Griezmann’s corner struck his hand and after a VAR review, the referee pointed to the spot. Griezmann duly converted to put France back in front at the break.
