The world cup 2018 has been an emotional rollercoaster right from day one. On Wednesday Croatia beat England in the second semi-finals and qualified for the much-anticipated clash with France in the final on Sunday. Since the 2018 world cup began weeks ago, fans worldwide have been treated to great football, stunning goals and of course a lot of drama both within and outside the pitch.
