moments of his career to something very very different when he gets home he hasn't actually been indicted yet but that kind of just shows you how many stories there are around this will cup final so let's have a look at a little preview now. when the possible future world champions are training on your doorstep any little peek will day villages in history where france is well cup team is based have adopted as their second team. we will always remember this unique moment one day we won't believe that super footballers train just two hundred metres from our home but what is that. these super footballers will start his favorites to win france's second world cup performances have improved as the tournament progressed now that just one game away from glory. i think the three most important words are calm and confidence and concentrations into the course of touch him. you have to

have a good dosage of the three to be best prepared for the match play probably in years that the national. day show was kept in when france last got their hands on the trophy in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight a home tournament this ended with wild celebrations across central paris then france knocked out croatia in the semifinals. fast forward twenty years in these croatia fans have now seen their team go one better a country of just four million confounding expectations and drinking up their underdog status for a lot of small covers or all the world like us there are they want our story and they support us and that will be i think big just that once in our lives and small guy be the bigger guy. this final could come down to one of the smallest guys of all kemal tritch croatia's diminutive captain has been arguably the standout player in russia i don't pull to go your guided me through this was
3:06 pm
a source of the soil. croatia have already shown in the south belief to win through three lots of extra time at this world cup if their fitness holds up a place in history could await. mark what are going to be the decisive factors in this game i think there are three decisive factors to this game if we talk first about goal threat this seems to favor croatia we can actually see some graphics here to help us so how this game's going to go question of scored twelve goals friends only ten lot more shots lot more shots on target so it's kind of looking better for croatia really on that count. if we turn to discipline though it's not looking so great for crew asia on the discipline front they've committed one hundred and warm fouls so far in this tour which is quite a lot of the means they've picked up a few more yellow cards than the france no red card so far although all french fans
3:07 pm
remember the last time in the final that it means a van managed to have booked mr massive out see him get himself a red we don't want any of that today and actually the most decisive factor i think will be in june or ns because croatia have played three extra times it actually almost played the whole game more than friends in this tournament and i think that actually will be the key factor i mean we look at the distance running kilometers so much more than friends so that's why i think france actually have the edge are in what emily now emily a great final be the icing on the cake for russians who certainly feel that this tournament has been a huge success when it. well absolutely for russia this tournament has already been a success the russians that i spoke to here in moscow said that they're really sad that this world cup is ending its been as one fan described or one person described a festival atmosphere here and one woman told me that she wanted to keep the whole world cup she didn't want it to end and she wanted to keep the fans here in the
