Croatia's bid for World Cup final glory is against their conquerors in 1998

Despite having played 90 extra minutes than Les Bleus over the course of the tournament in three periods of extra time, and having a day's less rest before the final, Croatia dominated the first-half. "You have to have a dream and ambitions, and then maybe it will come true - in football or life'".

Didier Deschamps said France were "swimming in happiness" after his players interrupted his post-World Cup final press conference, dancing and showering their manager in drinks as they celebrated their 4-2 win over Croatia. "We can not wait to lift the Cup and bring it back to France".

Croatia had done it the hard way to reach this final, winning on penalties in the last 16 and quarter-final against Denmark and hosts Russian Federation respectively before requiring extra time to beat England in the semi-final.

It was not to be but world-class midfielder Luka Modric has illuminated this World Cup, while the energy, commitment and threat of Perisic stood out here. I remember, when I took over, we had to beat Ukraine to even go to the playoffs, so that's all I thought about then because I never think beyond the next game.
