France has emerged champion of the FIFA WorldCup in Russia beating Croatia 4-2 on Sunday to win for the second time since they won the trophy 20 years ago.
France was leading with a clear 4 – 1 before a mistake by France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris gifted Mario Mandzukic a goal and Croatia had 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.
The match was very entertaining as it witness at least four people briefly interrupting 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.
