France v Croatia Betting Tips: Latest odds, team news, preview and predictions

France and Croatia will compete for international football’s greatest honour when they meet at the Luzhniki Stadium in Sunday’s World Cup final.

Les Bleus are aiming to bring him the trophy they previously won in 1998, having lost the 2006 final on penalties to Italy.

Latest Odds

Having run out 2-1 winners over this opposition in the 1998 semi-finals, they are dabblebet’s 10/11 (1.91) favourites to be crowned champions by coming out on top once again.

Zlatko Dalic’s men have exceeded all expectations to reach their first ever World Cup final, and are available at 7/2 (4.50) to pull off yet another shock and come out on top in Moscow.

The last two encounters between this pair have both resulted in draws, and you can get odds of 23/10 (3.30) on them taking this game into extra-time after another deadlocked 90 minutes.

Team News

Blaise Matuidi should be fit to start despite going off injured against Belgium, with Didier Deschamps likely to pick the same XI as started that 1-0 win.

Ivan Strinic is also likely to recover after limping off against England, while Mario Mandzukic should also be ready despite going off with cramp in extra-time.

Formidable France

In a World Cup not short of upsets, France have been the only pre-tournament favourite to live up to expectations.

As well as possessing a supremely talented squad, Deschamps’ men have generally looked organised and tactically disciplined enough to win in any circumstance.

Indeed, France prevailed in a frantic 4-3 victory over Argentina and a solid 1-0 over Belgium courtesy of a set piece, as well as comfortably seeing off Uruguay.


Having come through all three of their knockout stage matches within 90 minutes, those 10/11 (1.91) odds offer solid value on France proving too strong for a Croatian side that has endured three 120-minute matches within the space of 10 days.

West Ham sign Felipe Anderson from Lazio for club record £33.5m

West Ham have announced the signing of Felipe Anderson from Lazio, with the deal expected to cost them £33.5 million ($44m).

The attacking midfielder has signed a four-year deal with the Premier League club after spending five seasons in Serie A, where he scored 25 goals and set up 28 in 137 league appearances.

The move sees the Hammers complete their sixth signing of the close-season and break their transfer record for the second time this summer, having already signed Issa Diop from Toulouse for £21.9 million ($29m).

“I feel really happy and fulfilled to join West Ham United,” Anderson told the London side’s official website. “West Ham is a club with a lot of tradition, lots of great players have played here, like Bobby Moore, Carlos Tevez and Di Canio.

“They were great players and idols here, and I’m aiming big, who knows, maybe I could hit their heights and be a legend here too. I’m really happy to be here. It’s a dream come true.

“I want to thank the owner, David Sullivan, because he made a big effort to bring me here. I know how difficult it was, so I have to thank him a lot, and I hope I can repay his faith in me on the pitch with goals and winning games.”

Anderson was a target highlighted by new coach Manuel Pellegrini, and joint-chairman David Sullivan feels his arrival shows the club is ambitious after last season’s 13th place finish.

“Felipe was a main target of the manager so we are delighted we’ve been able to bring him to the club.

“We’re very pleased with the business we’ve done so far and I hope the supporters are just as excited as we are about the squad we are building here at West Ham.

“The deal sees us significantly break our transfer record and we feel it’s a real statement of intent.”

Director of football Mario Husillos expressed his delight at signing the ex-Santos man, who has one cap for Brazil so far.

“We are very happy and pleased to welcome Felipe to West Ham United,” he said.

“We believe that we have signed one of the most exciting talents in European football. Felipe has shown a fantastic level of performance at Lazio in recent seasons and we believe that he will now bring that quality to the Premier League. He is also a player very suited to the style of Manuel Pellegrini.

“For West Ham United this is a very big statement, a club record, so we must thank the owners for their support and work in making this transfer possible.

“It is a negotiation that has taken some time but it is a very good sign that Felipe was determined to become a West Ham player, and we feel very confident that he will become a big success at London Stadium.”

West Ham have already landed Andriy Yarmolenko from Borussia Dortmund for £17.5m ($23m), as well as Ryan Fredericks, Lukasz Fabianski and Jack Wilshere as they prepare for Pellegrini’s first season in charge.


‘We’re blessed to watch Mbappe’ – Kaka amazed by France star’s maturity

Former Brazil star Kaka has hailed Kylian Mbappe for his maturity and says fans of the global game are “blessed” to see the France teenager at the World Cup.

Mbappe, 19, has impressed throughout the showpiece tournament in Russia, scoring three goals in six games to help his nation into Sunday’s final against Croatia.

Kaka – who made 92 appearances for Brazil during his career – lauded the Paris Saint-Germain attacker for his performances.

“I think the best thing we can say about him is his speed, and how quickly he can run,” Kaka, speaking courtesy of Adidas, told Omnisport.

“Of course he’s not just running because he has very good control when he is running.

“And he is also just 19 years old, but he sometimes seems like he is 35 years old – very mature, controls the game, [makes] good choices.

“I think he’s got a very, very good future and to see a 19-year old player playing and performing like he is performing at this World Cup – we are blessed to see something like that.”

Mbappe will look to guide France to a second World Cup title when they face Croatia in the decider in Moscow.
