The Paris St Germain star had his back to goal when the ball came to him but he had the control and awareness to play in Giroud with a superb flick behind.

"That is football. If you know how to defend well you are guaranteed to have two or three opportunities to have a counter attack or a set piece and that can make the difference".

Mbappe is expected to put up another typically energetic display again on Sunday, when they face Croatia in the final.

French President Emmanuel Macron congratulated Russia's President Putin for his "perfect" organisation of the World Cup as the two leaders prepared to watch the final on Sunday.

"I don't talk about referees but let me say this one thing: In a World Cup final, you do not give such a penalty", he said. I'm sure they will be fuelled by all the support and do their best to take it home. France won its second World Cup title, and Croatia's best run ever ended in a runner-up finish.

I hope, and I think, Croatia will win.

The French head of state joined his country's victorious players in the locker room after they beat Croatia 4-2.

France were always going to storm the press conference.

By the time France and Denmark delivered a boring 0-0 draw in the group stage, 35 games had been played with at least one goal scored, breaking a World Cup record that had stood for 64 years.

Deschamps said 14 of his players were World Cup newcomers but were ready to work towards a common goal and were mentally more mature than their age.

Olivier Giroud could be the key man.

French forward Kylian Mbappe has been named the best young player in Russian Federation.

The King Tom Club was established by Croatian migrants in the 1960's and remains a key gathering place for members of the community who were out in force to witness what they described as "a proud moment". But, if Croatia concede early, it could be an exhibition of football from France.
