After 63 matches of the 2018 World Cup, it all ends today. In one corner, we have France, Group C winners, who are trying to channel the mojo of 1998 and bring another World Cup trophy home to Paris. In the other corner, we have Croatia, a team in its first World Cup final and looking to send flares shooting into the sky all across the countryside.
For fans all around the world, we watch to see who gets crowned a champion. Which stars will have their names etched in the history books under the title, “World Cup Winner” and receive the respect that title demands for a lifetime? Which players will come up just short, wondering what could have been? We’ll know in just a few short hours.
