The 2018 FIFA World Cup Finals are set, with France and Croatia ready to face off July 15 for the ultimate title in soccer.

Manchester United midfielder Pogba has grown in confidence and form during France's run to the World Cup final.

"We have to be pragmatic and we have to be realistic", French manager Didier Deschamps said ahead of England vs. Croatia, according to ESPN.

"Maybe the dear Lord is giving us an opportunity to settle a score", he said. He is used to it though in this World Cup after playing against Lionel Messi in the last 16, Luis Suarez in the quarterfinal and - although he didn't actually take to the field - Thomas Vermaelen in the semifinal. They are solid. "I don't think that tiredness will play a part as you overcome it when you play in a final". Croatia had prevailed on penalties in both the last 16 and the quarter-finals, defeating Denmark and then tournament hosts Russian Federation. Before the tournament started, there were doubts over us.

Luka Modric inspired Croatia to their 2-1 extra-time victory over England in the semi-finals, but Pogba insists it would be a mistake to consider him the only threat.

They booked their place in the final by seeing off England 2-1 after extra time, making light of the fact that the Three Lions hail from a land with a population of around 53 million.

"It's fantastic, we're so excited", said Christopher Tomas, owner of the Croatian Corner deli, of Croatia's win.

It is what it is, but we'll try and play that game with as much pride as a team as try and finish on a high.

"For us, we are not the favourites. We have one more game left, and we have never been more motivated". They want to win.

"Of course it is going to be a really hard task over the next 24 hours to assess everybody and to get everybody mentally back to where we want them for a game like that". He played the game with great maturity. We did not forget the doubts about us at the beginning of the competition, about our ability to play together.
