Latest team news & prices
Moscow BBC1/ITV 4pm
There were no shocks in the team selections for the World Cup final but there has been money for a surprise in the result, with Croatia all the rage to upset France in Moscow.
France have drifted from odds-on prices to 11-10 to win inside 90 minutes and for those yet to have a bet now looks the time to step in to back Didier Deschamps' side.
Other punts to consider are France to win 2-0 at 8-1 and Antoine Griezmann to be named as man of the match at 7-1.
Les Bleus are 1-2 to win the World Cup with the outsiders at 7-4, while there has also been support for Luka Modric to take the Golden Ball. The Croatia captain is no better than 2-1, although Kylian Mbappe remains the 11-10 favourite.
France (4-2-3-1): Hugo Lloris; Benjamin Pavard, Raphael Varane, Samuel Umtiti, Lucas Hernandez; Paul Pogba, N'Golo Kante; Kylian Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann, Blaise Matuidi; Olivier Giroud.
Croatia (4-1-2-3): Danijel Subasic; Sime Vrsaljko, Dejan Lovren, Domagoj Vida, Ivan Strinic; Marcelo Brozovic; Luka Modric, Ivan Rakitic; Ante Rebic, Mario Mandzukic, Ivan Perisic.
