Journalist rules out Man United selling 25-year-old France star

Journalist rules out Man United selling 25-year-old France star

20 years ago France pipped Croatia 2-1 in the semi-finals of the World Cup - in a game Croatia led for one minute - while the honours were shared in the group stages of Euro 2004.

The "Wild Boars" soccer team, aged between 11 and 16, and their 25-year-old coach became trapped on June 23 while exploring the cave complex in the northern province of Chiang Rai when a rainy season downpour flooded the tunnels.

"They have upped their game over the past several games", Ivan Perisic said.

'I am not going to lie.

"Right from day one when people said they were unimpressive, they have been raising their game, and their defence is very solid".




The much-awaited encounter will be between France, the 1998 World Cup champions, and Croatia which has qualified to the finals for the first time.

France will be Croatia's opponents for their first showing at a World Cup final. Argentina barely qualified for the World Cup, but were still expected to top their group easily, even with the Euro 2016's fairytale story Iceland in their group. The usual organized and structured Germans looked in shambles as Mexico played an awesome game where they could have won by three or more had the CONCACAF side been more clinical.

The 21st edition of the tournament has had a different atmosphere than World Cups of recent years, due primarily to the teams that have advanced deep into the tournament. Croatia's strength of personality will serve them well in the final against France. Maybe Jose Mourinho could take a leaf out of Didier Deschamps' book and give Pogba more freedom on the pitch.

His wonderful assist for the penalty and deflected shot for the victor against Australia started France's tournament off on the front foot, then he made the key interception in the build-up to Kylian Mbappe's only goal against Peru. France's star player has heard plenty of criticism (most of it unfair) for his play both at the club level and the national level despite playing at a high level throughout his career. The World Cup often boosts consumer spending. France have been there and done that although no player in the current squad has lifted the World Cup. "They fought back, went into extra time again and scored a goal - which was a fantastic play".
