It all comes down to this. The stage is set and the world awaits. Perhaps not the final that so many would have wanted at the beginning of the competition but an exciting one no less.
France, after running out 1-0 winners over their Belgian neighbours, and having had more of a rest than their opponents will be going into the game filled with drive, energy and sheer quality in their players. Croatia on the other hand, just don’t seem to want to give up, playing high intensity matches well into extra time in their three knockout matches – an impressive feat which will inspire confidence going into the final. With national pride on the line, this match promises to be a thrilling contest.
