France beat Croatia 4-2 on Sunday to win the FIFA World Cup for the second time since they won the trophy 20 years ago.

The world champions had moved 4-1 clear before a mistake by France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris gifted Mario Mandzukic a goal and Croatia a way back into the World Cup final in Moscow.

Mandzukic tackled a dawdling Lloris to send the ball into the net and cut the deficit to two goals.



Croatia’s forward Mario Mandzukic and France’s defender Benjamin Pavard vie for the ball during the Russia 2018 World Cup final football match between France and Croatia at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on July 15, 2018.

Meanwhile, four people briefly interrupted the match when they ran onto the pitch.

They included at least one woman, while the men appeared to be wearing uniforms of security personnel.

Referee Nestor Pitana briefly halted the match between France and Croatia while stadium security staff chased down and then carried off the individuals.
