Center back Samuel Umtiti put France on the board in the 51st minute with a header off of a corner, and the team managed to hold that narrow lead for the last 40 minutes and change.

France, world champions in 1998 after beating Croatia in the semis, are in their third World Cup final.

"(France is) very good defensively, and I think they're playing like the best team in the world right now", said Gobert, the reigning Defensive Player of the Year in the National Basketball Association.

But Mbappe is focused on team glory and responded to questions about the Ballon d'Or by telling TF1: 'I couldn't care less about that. "I don't have the words". Not even in my wildest dreams, and I am a big dreamer, would I have imagined this.

One thing to keep an eye on in this match is the legs and how exhausted the players will be, especially with Croatia. "We were all happy, all hugging", Mbappe said. We did not come here to have a good tournament and to finish fourth. "Everyone is with us, we're all in this together". We are in the final of a World Cup.

Les Bleus are headed to the World Cup final.

"Forty-nine days together, it is a lot of things, hard things, the group stage, it is the merit of everyone", he said. They then came from a goal down against England on Wednesday to win 2-1 in extra time.

"A lot of pride", said the defender.
