It is of course France and Croatia that have made it through to the final game, and to be fair to both sides they have done so by playing top class football and both teams have found their very best form, and deserve their place in that final match.

Who Will Score First?
Whichever team does score the first goal you are going to hear the fans roar their approval from miles away from the stadium, and you may have your own thoughts as to just which player will be the one that score first in this match.
Regarding the players and their respective odds that do appear to be attracting all the money on the player to score first betting markets it is Antoine Griezmann at 7/2, Kylian Mbappe at 9/2 along with Olivier Giroud at 5/1, Nabil Fekir at 7/1 and Ousmane Dembele at 8/1, all of whom play from France that punters are placing bets on to score the very first goal of the match.
