DP Ruto picks his team for Sunday's World Cup final

DP Ruto picks his team for Sunday's World Cup final

Luka Modric inspired Croatia to their 2-1 extra-time victory over England in the semi-finals, but Pogba insists it would be a mistake to consider him the only threat.

A bonus for the Croats as they prepare for their nation's first World Cup final: They finally get to wear their unmistakable checkered jerseys again. We want to go looking for it like all players.

"I actually think, from watching the games, that he is probably the outstanding midfielder in the tournament if I'm honest".

"Matuidi and Kante have that sense of when danger's imminent, but with Pogba, I just want him to utilise his wonderful asset which is atleticism", he declared to Richard Keys on beIN Sports. "Can you imagine if France wins the World Cup on Sunday and he scores and has a good game?"

"The Croats had a very hard match and they were behind".

They pulled off one of the biggest upsets of the tournament when they eliminated Spain in the round of 16 and came very close to defeating Croatia in the quarter-final as well. While this team's players' names are amusing, they play for some of the best clubs in the world and they showed character and held their nerve to two win penalty shootout so far.

England v Belgium - Preview and possible lineups
Belgium managed to eke out a win thanks to an early surge where they dominated the Englishmen like it was nobody's business. Danny Rose and Phil Jones were liabilities defensively, but Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Eric Dier had good moments.

"For us, we are not the favorites".

The Man United man started and finished the move for his goal with some sublime play and one or two of his detractors will be forced to eat some humble pie in the wake of this performance.

"We can not start the Premier League with our players that were in the World Cup, which is a shame for the most important club competition in Europe", Mourinho told RT on Saturday. "We are chasing something and will do everything to succeed". They beat England in the semifinal 2-1 after extra-time and now have the opportunity to bring Croatia their first ever World Cup.

Manchester United won't consider selling Paul Pogba for a second time, reporter Keith Downie has claimed. There wasn't even any desperate defending with players throwing themselves to block shots or scrambling to clear balls off the line or to catch the opposition who were left free. "We've shown our character".

France's players danced on the field after the final whistle and their fans sang in the stands long past the end of the match, surrounded by yellow-clad security.
