  • Soccer Football- World Cup- Final- France v Croatia- Luzhniki Stadium Moscow Russia

France's Antoine Griezmann celebrates with his teammate Kylian Mbappe, left, after Paul Pogba scored his side's 3rd goal, during the final match between France and Croatia at the 2018 soccer World Cup in the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, Russia, Sunday, July 15, 2018.

Earlier Putin was making the most of the much-anticipated World Cup final, cozying up to UFC fighter Conor McGregor.

"We can surely be proud of how we organised this tournament", Putin said in televised comments after France's victory against Croatia.

Contracts were signed with all three of the aforementioned players, both Hernandez and Griezmann renewing and Lemar putting pen to paper to seal his switch from Monaco to the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano.

"This man is one of the greatest leaders of our time and I was honoured to attend such a landmark event alongside him", McGregor said.

Mbappe's speed led to the third goal in the 59th.

Nestor Pitana chose to overturn his original decision after adjudging Perisic had deliberately handled the ball in the area.

In the end it was Didier Deschamps in the rain, looking up at the stands after his side beat Croatia 4-2 in the World Cup final, water dripping down his face and golden ticker tape in his hair and on his jacket.

Anderson beats Isner in epic, record-setting Wimbledon semifinal
Marin Cilic beat Sam Querrey in that 2012 third-round match. "I don't really know what to say right now", Anderson said. Anderson fell to his backside trying to return an Isner serve, but got to his feet with his racket in his off hand.

Mbappe, who plays for Paris Saint-Germain in the French league, was born months after France won its only other World Cup title in 1998.

Then after Croatia levelled at 1-1, France were awarded a penalty for a harsh handball decision against Croatia, Griezmann converting the spot kick.

"We were all sad, downcast but I said to the players "hold you heads up high, you have given your all and you have to be proud", he said. Things didn't work out like they'd hoped, but they certainly made the most out of the game.

"We were dominant, we had control", Dalic said through a translator. He joined Mario Zagallo of Brazil and Franz Beckenbauer, who captained West Germany.

"Foreign supporters who now have fan IDs will be able to benefit from multiple entries into the Russian Federation without a visa until the end of the year", Putin said.

"We are, of course, ready to share the experience we acquired in hosting the World Cup this year along with our friends, " the Russian President said.

"The question is, is France a lovely champion?"

Putin watched the game in a VIP section with the presidents of France and Croatia, Emmanuel Macron and Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic.
