The end is here. After sixty four football matches have been and gone, France were the last team standing. Overall, I’d say that’s probably fair because no other team has been as consistent as Les Bleus. Here are the last two ten word reports of the tournament…
14th July: Third Place Playoff – Belgium 2 – 0 England
Belgians take deserved third place as they beat England again.
15th July: World Cup Final – France 4 – 2 Croatia
French too strong for brave Croatians as Mbappe shines bright.
Right, now for a few little awards…
Best Team: France, obviously.
Best Player: Tough one, but I’m going for Eden Hazard.
Best Match: I’d like to pick an England game, but for me it has to be France vs Argentina in the Second round. 4 – 3 and Mbappe on fire. And, of course, Argentina losing!
Best Goal: Difficult one to choose. I think I’m going for Benjamin Pavard’s goal for France against Argentina. Such technique from a defender to strike the ball and keep it low into the goal.
