France were able to find their own luck in the match, as a first ever World Cup final own goal was scored by Mandžukić as well as a controversial VAR decision, which awarded France a penalty. Both of these taking place before half time. 

Pogba came under criticism before the tournament began, as he was booed off by the French fans in a warm up match for the World Cup.
