The 2018 World Cup in Russia ended July 15 and France won second place after 1998 and Croatia as runner-up - a new history for Luca Modric cs.

Not only the team, as many as five players crowned as the best of 731 other players. They are Luca Modrid (Croatia) earned Golden Ball, Kylian Mbappe (France) won Best Young Player, Harry Kane (England) top score 6 goal gets Golden Boot.
