The French National soccer team officially has bragging rights for four years following Sunday's 4-2 win over Croatia in the World Cup Final. Led by young stars Kylian Mbappe, Paul Pogba, and Antoine Griezmann. Mario Manduki kicked off the scorting for the French in the 18th minute, but Croatia didn't take long to answer with Ivan Perii's rocket shot in the 28th minute.

We are world champions and France are going to be on top of the world for next four years

The third goal of the game came with a bit of drama as Antoine Griezmann scored off a free kick resulting from a hand ball in the box. Paul Pogba opened up the second half scoring with a 59th minute goal followed by a Kylian Mbappe goal in the 64th minute. The goal gave France a comfortable 4-1 lead and in doing so Mbappe became the youngest player since Pele to score in a World Cup Final.
