So that's the end of this fascinating, entertaining, topsy-turvy, shocking, surprising 2018 World Cup. It was certainly the right kind of showpiece, with terrific strikes, own goals, and some good old VAR controversy thrown in there for good measure. France were ultimately worthy winners today. It's been a great month - thank you for your company today, and over the past four weeks. See you next time.
-
Lots of tears all over the pitch, both of jubilation and disappointment. It's pouring with rain and Didier Deschamps is still having his suit soaked with a bottle of water squirted at him by his celebrating players, who then pick him up and throw him into the air.
-
-
The France squad run on to the pitch to celebrate, but of course don't forget their sporting responsibility to shake hands with their vanquished opponents.
90'+5
FULL-TIME. France are WORLD CUP WINNERS!
90'+4
This is still extremely end-to-end stuff, this, as you can probably tell.
-
The free kick is in towards Pogba, and he just doesn't seem to see it properly - does it take a touch from Vida's arm?

90'+2
Pogba is raging with himself for overthinking his counterattack down the right.

Five minutes to be added on here.
-
-
Brozovic concedes a free kick and then kicks the ball across the field. That's excellent thinking there, wasting time Croatia need to get two goals back.
90'
Into the last minute now.
-
Rakitic has a very optimistic dig from range, but Lloris is always confident that's high and wide.
88'
Croatia are packing the box now as they look for another two goals to take this into extra time.
