France-Croatia: Youth Vs Experience

It's official: France vs Croatia will be the 2018 World Cup Final. One can say this World Cup is nothing if not surprising: Germany knocked out at the beginning of the competition, Spain defeated by Russia, and Croatia reaching the final!

If France perseveres (winners in 1998 and finalists in 2006), Croatia will discover for the first time what a final is.

France is powered by players such as Kylian Mbappe who is 19 years-old, the very player who scored twice versus Argentina. On the other side, Croatia is full of players such as Mandzukic, 32, older but still a good player.

A country of 65 million versus the 4th smallest country of the 32 World Cup teams (4 million people). So, who will win?

In 1998, Croatia did indeed reach the semi-finals, but lost to France. So, as Plenkovic said, they now have a chance for revenge.
