The World Cup comes to an end on Sunday with France and Croatia competing for first place.
After defeating England yesterday, Croatia will be heading to its first World Cup final. The last time the country made it to the final four was in 1998 when France hosted and won the World Cup. That was also the last and only time France took home the prize.
This year’s World Cup has been filled with surprises. Croatia was not expected to make it this far, Brazil is no longer the victorious national team it once was, and the tournament has narrowed down to a European competition.
So what can we expect as the finalists head to Russia? We discuss with Mike Woitalla of SoccerAmerica.com and Kevin Baxter from the L.A. Times.
