Dan Mullan/Getty ImagesFrance took home the 2018 World Cup after a 4-2 victory in the final over Croatia. French dominated the game and despite numerous dangerous attacks from Croatia were able to take home the win rather comfortably. 19-year-old wunderkind Kylian Mbappe scored a late goal for France, becoming the first teenager to score in a World Cup final since Pele.
France soundly defeated Croatia 4-2 in the World Cup final on Sunday, lifting the trophy for the first time since 1998.
While Croatia was in total control in the early minutes of the match, it was France who would strike first, when Antoine Griezmann struck a free kick into the box that caught the head of Croatian Mario Mandzukic for an own goal to give Les Bleus a 1-0 lead in the 18th minute.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
