France and Croatia will square up against each other in the World Cup final this Sunday after winning their semifinals games, and it is a battle that's loaded with talent. Even the average soccer enthusiast knows just how stacked Les Bleus is, but Croatia is a side that also has its fair share of superstars who have helped carry this team.
But which team has the advantage when it comes to the different lines and more? Let us break the matchup bit by bit.
Why: Both sides have some excellent players, 10 of which play in one of the top leagues in the world, La Liga. But there is no doubt France has more talent. From young and emerging star Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann leading the front to a midfield controlled by one of the best central defensive midfielders in world football in N'Golo Kante alongside Paul Pogba, the French team is superb.
But when you add that France has one of the top shot-stoppers in Hugo Lloris and a central defensive pairing in Real Madrid's Raphael Varane and Barcelona star Samuel Umtiti, you just see a side oozing with talent. For Croatia, there is Dejan Lovren in defense. That is all you need to know.
