Football may not be coming home, but there is every possibility that it can go to England's cross-channel neighbors France, as they would hope to join the list of countries with multiple world cup titles when they take on another European side, Croatia in the FIFA World Cup 2018 Finals on Sunday, July 15, 2018.

As the referee blows the whistle to kick-off the match at 18:00 MSK (15:00 GMT), the world will wait to witness the new holders of the beautiful world cup trophy.

Live updates

Every corner of the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow is expected to be packed with fans; such is the hype of this summit clash.

If France wins this final, they will become the sixth nation to win this trophy on more than one occasion, as they had won the cup back in 1998. On the other hand, for the Croatian side, this is the first appearance in the final of a major event.

Tv telecast

The Final will be televised live on TF1, France Télévisions and beIN Sports in France, while HRT will be televising the match live in Croatia.

Viewers in the US can watch the match live on Fox Sports.

Team News:

The French midfielder Blaise Matuidi will be the part of the starting XI, even though he had to be substituted in the previous game after a massive bump with Eden Hazard.

He seemed a bit bewildered after this collision; it doesn't seem that Matuidi sustained a concussion.

The Croatian team manager Zlatko Dalic has revealed that his team has a few "minor injuries" to recover with.

The Croatian winger Ivan Perisic is supposedly getting himself treated from an injury and also didn't attend the practice session on Friday. Croatian center back Domagoj Vida will be considered for selection after FIFA granted him to play.

The decision of his appearance in the final was held up after he was seen in a video in which he apparently said "Glory to Ukraine!". Marcelo Brozovic is expected to retain his spot after playing well versus England.
