Team News: France, Croatia teams as expected for 2018 World Cup final

:Headline: Team News: France, Croatia teams as expected for 2018 World Cup final:
There are no surprises in either the France or Croatia team for Sunday's 2018 World Cup final in Moscow.
By , European Football Editor | 1y

Olivier Giroud will again lead the France line in Sunday's 2018 World Cup final against Croatia.

Giroud keeps his spot in the final third of the field alongside Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe, with Blaise Matuidi, Paul Pogba and N'Golo Kante operating in a deeper position.

It is the same XI that started the semi-final win over Belgium last week, meaning that the likes of Ousmane Dembele and Corentin Tolisso are named on the bench once again.

Croatia, meanwhile, are also unchanged from their 2-1 win over England in the semi-finals on Wednesday night.

Sime Vrsaljko passed a late fitness test to face England and keeps his spot at right-back, while Mario Mandzukic will again be supported by Ivan Perisic and Ante Rebic in the final third.

Marcelo Brozovic is again picked in central midfield alongside Ivan Rakitic and Luka Modric, who both impressed against England.

France: Lloris; Pavard, Varane, Umtiti, Hernandez; Pogba, Kante, Matuidi; Griezmann, Giroud, Mbappe
Subs: N'Zonzi, Tolisso, Kimpembe, Lemar, Dembele, Mandanda, Rami, Fekir, Sidibe, Thauvin, Mendy, Areola

Croatia: Subasic; Vrsaljko, Lovren, Vida, Strinic; Rakitic, Modric, Brozovic; Perisic, Mandzukic, Rebic
Subs: Pivaric, Kramaric, Corluka, Badelj, Livakovic, Kovacic, Kalinic, Jedvaj, Bradaric, Caleta-Car, Pjaca
