    Bigger population that Uruguay though.

    Ditto,if only because the Croats have been as chippy as hell about England since their semi-final win.

    France surely have this.

    I will watch with interest, but honestly not fussed about who wins, don't especially like or dislike either side, just hope it's a good game.

    **** Croatia.

    Modric and Rakitic have both won the CL. **** their WC.

    Hope Croatia do it, fully expect France to walk it in.

    **** Mbappe.

    I’d be surprised if France win by much, they haven’t really attacked enough to win games comfortably. Most likely to be 1-0 imo.

    Backing France because of Pogba and Kante. **** Croatia. I expect the ref will let a lot of contact happen and it's a final so it could be dour and tight.

    Got to catch Mbappe first. Fmd that bloke is lightning.

    Have now firmly settled on France. Sealed by the Sm00teh influence together with the fact that if they win it then we can say they were most troubled through the tourney by Australia, who they were lucky to get past, and as a result we are actually a top ten side.

    Expect France to win, but wouldn't be at all surprised if Croatia get up. It takes iron will to come from behind 3 games in a row, even if the final represents a significant step up in quality.

    Would be fully on board with this if not for Mbappe. **** Mbappe.

    Alternatively, coming from behind three games in a row and ending up in extra time over and over again could mean they're wrecked. Depends on whether all of the blokes limping off were cramping or some were more serious, I suppose.
