What Kits Will France And Croatia Wear For The World Cup Final?

When France and Croatia battle for the World Cup trophy on Sunday in Russia (learn how to watch it here), two national teams with iconic looks will take the pitch side by side for the first time in 20 years. The question is, will those iconic uniforms be the ones we see for the World Cup final kits?

Andreas Granqvist Was Fined By FIFA Because Of His Socks

Sweden was sent packing by England after a 2-0 defeat in the quarterfinals of the World Cup. The Swedes showed the world that they were there to really have a go at the tournament, making it out of a group that barely anyone gave them a chance in. 

However, while Sweden’s players will no doubt be proud of their achievement, there was one little bit of negativity that arose from it — a piece of negativity to the tune of $66,000. More specifically, Andreas Granqvist’s socks are going to cost him $66,000. Clear enough for you? 

New Zealand’s New Nike Away Jersey Is Gorgeous, Just Like The Country

David de Gea: "It's really strange. It could have been made a lot better."

France’s New World Cup Jerseys Mark A Bold Break With Tradition For Les Bleus

In Antoine Griezmann, Alex Lacazette, Anthony Martial, Olivier Giroud, Dimitri Payet, Ousmane Dembele, Nabil Fekir, Kylian Mbappe, Kevin Gameiro and the ostracized Karim Benzema, France possess 10 forwards that, if hypothetically American, would waltz into the discussion of the greatest U.S. attacker of all-time. 

It’s an embarrassment of attacking riches, especially when coupled with the dreamy midfield play of players like Paul Pogba, Thomas Lemar, Kingsley Coman and Corentin Tolisso.
