France once again lifted the greatest prize in football following a gripping 4-2 World Cup final win over Croatia on Sunday night.

A Mario Mandzukic own goal initially gave Les Bleus a lead against the run of play, however, the Croatians showed they would not make it easy as Ivan Perisic equalised soon after.

Controversy then struck before half-time, however, as France were awarded a penalty for a reviewed handball, which was expertly converted by Antoine Griezmann.

Goals after the break from Paul Pogba and Kylian Mbappe put the result beyond doubt, although Mandzukic was able to reduce the deficit after capitalising on Hugo Lloris’ error.

Here are some of the best pics to come from the match:
