France’s players were seen as disappointed after the final, but they honestly showed us such a fantastic performance during the match, no doubt of that. 

2. Croatia vs Morocco

Croatian captain Luka Modrić said that it was important for the team to repeat their 2018 success to prove that previous medals were not coincidental. “We belong to the world elite,” he added.
