Antoine Griezmann dive sets up French goal in World Cup final

France won the World Cup for the second time after beating Croatia 4-2 in the FIFA World Cup 2018 final.

2014 World Cup winning captain Philipp Lahm was in Moscow to hand over the trophy.

Didier Deschamps' side performed impressively in the final against a good Croatian side, who dominated the first half but still found themselves 2-1 down at half-time.

Talking about the achievement at the press conference, the 49-year old said, "Well, I don't really like to talk about myself, but I'm going to be forced to do so a little bit, of course".

The extra-time hero of Croatia's semi-final win over England turned villain when he flicked Antoine Griezmann's free-kick into his own net in the 18th minute of the 2018 decider at the Luzhniki Stadium. Croatia, with a population of only 4.2 million people, were not among the favourites at the start of the tournament.

Former Tasman Makos Rugby coach Gary Stevens, who was in Dubrovnik Square with his family, said the Croatians reminded him a lot of All Blacks supporters.

Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic appealed to employers to let staff leave work early to join the celebration.

With the nation glued to screens to watch their team's progress through the tournament, sales of television sets went up 400 percent compared to past year.

Football fans quickly took to Twitter on Sunday evening to call on France to put an end to its "hypocrisy" and acknowledge the foundational, positive role immigrants and Muslims play in developing its society.
