Well considering that Roy Keane believes that it's okay to try break an opponents legs, I'll ignore his opinion,
Someone should remind him Harry

I give up - that's football. Arguably 2 of France's goals shouldn't have been but I can't argue with the brilliance of their last two.
Mbappe comes of age.

Mandzukic - the greatest credit to Croatia - never give up.

This is perhaps, so far, the best final since ours in 1966 for sheer edge-of-the-seat entertainment.

I suppose you have to say they deserved it, but Croatia didn't deserve to lose.

France beat Argentina, Uruguay, Belgium & Croatia to win the World Cup

Best team in the tournament even though they got lucky in the first-half

Gus Hiddinck saying France didn't show the quality and, for me, they didn't - a couple of flashes of exceptional skill/luck.
Other than that Croatia provided the lasting memories of passionate effort.
