Crazy that I am against the grain but I think amac's front three is better than Nicks. I would admit that Kane is better than Cavani but that is no slight to Cavani since he is a world class striker in his own right. This is also not taking into effect that he might be the best defensive striker in the world when it comes to work rate and tracking back.
Hugo Lloris committed a handful of noteworthy miscues with Tottenham Hotspur during the campaign, but he's performed as well as any goalkeeper in the tournament. Perhaps the hamstring issue that slowed the goalkeeper versus Russia is still nagging him. He's expected to start. He's defensively sound, and he could notch the Final-winning goal or assist pushing forward.
Look for him to attract interest from big clubs later this month. He's a pinpoint passer capable of playing the perfect ball at the exact moment for those advancing forward in the middle.
Best of all for Croatia, Vrsaljko moved up and down the pitch throughout the contest. He should be good to go on Sunday. He may still have Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku in his pocket days after the semifinal. Don't be surprised if the Real Madrid man is the best player on the pitch Sunday.
In reality, he's the biggest liability of the four starting at the position on Sunday.
The Liverpool man was lucky to not earn a pair of yellow cards during the first half of the semifinal. Umtiti could test the goalkeeper on a set-piece situation in the Final five days after heading home the winner against Belgium. He's grown in confidence playing alongside Varane this World Cup.
Vida struggled keeping up with England's quicker attackers in the first half of the semifinal, though, and France should look to exploit this part of his game, especially once fatigue sets in.
Hernandez won't be afraid to push forward in attacks under the bright lights of a final. As Martin Rogers of USA Today wrote, the year-old is also willing to throw himself to the floor in attempts to win calls. As much as Croatia will look for Strinic to push forward and play dangerous crosses, he needs to produce his best defensive showing on Sunday.
That is the significant talking point among those backing the underdogs heading into the World Cup Final. France are the better team that bossed a harsher bracket en route to the Final. They possess more depth.
Victory is the only acceptable result for Les Bleus. Croatia defying the odds during a World Cup filled with upsets and astonishing outcomes is now the norm, and their journey to world football's biggest stage is no fluke. Cup finals often bore casual viewers due to one side sitting back and attempting to survive onslaughts from an opponent.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and Croatia don't need to entertain to earn a historic victory that no reasonable person saw coming a month ago. Zac is a football and futbol aficionado who is a PFWA member and is probably yelling about Tottenham Hotspur at the moment.
