France forward Kylian Mbappe won the FIFA Young Player award at the 2018 FIFA World Cup. On Sunday، France beat Croatia 4-2 in the final at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium to lift their second World Cup trophy.
The 2018 FIFA World Cup award ceremony was held at the Luzhniki Stadium after the final match. France has now won their second World Cup after winning their first in 1998 on home soil.
France led 2-1 at halftime after a Mario Mandzukic own goal and an Antoine Griezmann VAR penalty، with Ivan Perisic briefly bringing first-time finalists Croatia level.
Quickfire strikes by Paul Pogba and Kylian Mbappe midway through the second half put France on course for the title but Mandzukic was gifted a goal by French keeper Hugo Lloris to set up a nervous last 20 minutes.
France، however، withstood a spirited Croatia assault to lift the trophy for the second time، following their success on home soil 20 years ago، and ensure there was no repeat of two years ago when they were beaten in the European Championship final by Portugal in Paris.
The victory means that Didier Deschamps، captain of the 1998 side، becomes the third man to win the World Cup as player and coach after Brazil's Mario Zagallo and Germany's Franz Beckenbauer.
