Eden Hazard from Belgium was the best player from my point of view!
Anybody agree with me?

Congratulations to France and the French iorrians, smileys with beer what a match, so exiting, such a relief that the dodgy penalty didn't decide the match.

So sorry for Croatia though, they played so determinedly and hard, next time maybe its England or Croatia who wins, we never know .thumbs up

Congrats to France.

Croatia played some nice football at times, but i think the matches catches up with them, but that not is taking anything from France.

On with the La Tour De france!!

But what was Giroud doing there? He didn't hit one ball right. Same in the semi final,

No. Modric is a team player, I thought Hazard played very selfish.

Well next year we can do the Women's World Cup until the November/December 2022 corruption in Qatar. Maybe with 48 teams.

The referee is probably the best of the tournament.

When corriecas dares to say that he was in favour of France is strictly nonsense and ridiculous.

Croatia made many fouls with some agressivity and they were not blamed while France got 2 yellow cards.

yes right
I must admit that Giroud was absolutely disappointing from the beginning of the world cup.
Modric is a very good collective player and a real game leader.

The handball penalty call is a complete game-changer. It is one of the worst rules in soccer. Especially when the ball rolls off a French players back and barely touches the Croatian players hand unintentionally. It tarnishes the tournament.

You're right, Sicilian. The referee shouldn't have used VAR here. There was nothing the Croatian defender could do to avoid the touch. No matter the touch, I don't think it was a penalty. France was lucky. All the same, congrats to France. They scored three goals besides the lucky penalty. A good game. Poor Croatia. They deserved better. 4-2, far better than 0-0 and penalties after all...
No doubt Quique Stone, there was penalty for France.

Still think Croatia was superior to France. Shame really.
Jeroen
It was for sure, but France was luckier and scored more goals!

Look at the stats on Skysports and you will see Croatia had the most posession, shots, chances.

Anyway without scoring goals - having the most ball posession doesn't help. France are good winners... congrats.

The pitch storming? Apparently it was planned by the punk-rock group Pussy Riot:

I'm afraid you are wrong here, Jpasc95. A majority of experts thinks that the penalty was wrongly given. It's a pity that it was so decisive for the game. The Croatian goalie was remarkably bad in this game. Did he even make one save in the whole game? He wasn't near on any of the goals. And the French goalie did an own goal. Remarkable in a WC final.

Strange scenes took place during the medal ceremony. They were all soaked except President Putin who was shielded from the rain with an umbrella. A woman official stole one of the gold medals also. Strange!

Mbappé high-fived a Pussy Riot pitch stormer and is praised in social media for this.

Provincialism ?
I'm afraid you did not watch properly. It is really bad faith not to admit there was penalty.
Are you a friend of corriecas ?
you seem to be exasperated like him that France won.
I'm sorry but you're gonna have to deal with it

Jpasc95: All I'm saying that almost every expert (former refeeres) I have listened to have said a) you can award a penalty there b) they wouldn't have done it. They basically don't think that the ref should have used VAR in this situation. He should have ruled by his first instinct. I tend to agree. I think the penalty was very harsh. But let's agree to disagree on this then. No harsh feelings. Sorry about the provincialism insinuation. Unnecessary of me.

At first I didn't thought it was penalty, but when I watched carefully there was no doubt that the referee was right. See here (from 2:20 onwards): [youtu.be]

No discuss
France was and is the best team of this world Cup
Mbappe the best player
And Deschamps the best trainer.
Sorry for the others.

Okey: It's not about technicalities. The ball touches the defenders hand or arm. No doubt about that. And no one has claimed that it didn't. It's about judgement and the right level of decision. Take in mind that it's a final of the World Cup. You shouldn't give a penalty on peanuts. Which the ref did. Unfortunatelly. I have searched the internet on this. And almost every player or referee agrees with that. Nota bene: I do not say that you can't call that a penalty. You can. I'm just saying that you shouldn't.

Croatia made many fouls with some agressivity and they were not blamed while France got 2 yellow cards.

Well, the free kick that lead to goal #1 was nothing. The penalty decision was dubious.

Very important decisions that went in favour of France, imo.

France deserved the title for their cynicism, professionalism and efficiency, though. Congrats, France!

And furthermore: To discuss whether a decision was right or not has nothing to do with which team you root for. France won with 4-2. Congrats to them. Of course.

Totally disagree with you about "important decisions that went in favour of France".

What's going on guys ?
Is it a Scandinavian riot against France ?

Cynicism is on your side.
It's sad to see so much Bad faith and hatred.

They were among the top 5 teams but they were extremely lucky. Fate was on their side from Day 1.
Maybe Deschamps hired the right African sorcerers? grinning smiley

Congrats to France,well deserved champions regarding the whole tournament.

Croatia did very well,but seemed to be a bit tired today in the second half.
Understandable,adding 3 extra times it's been a whole extra match they've played,plus a day less preparing for the final.

The free kick before the french first goal was caused by a diving Griesman...pity the ref didn't notice.
The penalty was ok...bad luck for Croatia.

All in all it was a good final,I had fun watching it.

I guess the next WC '22 at Quatar will be a desert trip around xmas...and I doubt it'll be fun...

What an amazing sunday !
The people in the streets everywhere, not only in the big cities.

I think we deserved it, playing a non-flamboyant, but realistic and efficient footbal. The team spirit was amazing, and that's the secret.
The coach did not call some talented players in his team just because he knew their personality wouldn't fit. Great job !
