Captain marvel: Harry Kane puts in a shift against Sweden

Brought to you by Clear Arabia

France capped off a month of football fever as they defeated Croatia 4-2 to be crowned World Cup winners for the second time in the country’s history. The four weeks in Russia produced one of the best tournaments the game’s ever seen, with the introduction of VAR, a record number of penalties and huge upsets including Germany finishing bottom of group F. Didier Deschamps became only the third person ever to lift the World Cup as both a player and manager (joining Mario Zagallo, Franz Beckenbauer) as his France side brushed aside Croatia in a thrilling finale.

Here, we look back at the 64 Champion Moments (14-9) from every game of the 2018 World Cup.

12. Neymar played a pivotal role in Brazil’s quarter final against Belgium, but it wasn’t enough as Belgium won the game 1-2.

11. Nacer Chadli pulled the strings as Belgium advanced to the semi-final with victory against Brazil.

10. Emil Forsberg played his part in Sweden’s World Cup campaign as they reached the quarterfinals.

9. Harry Kane put in a captain’s performance against Sweden as England won their first quarterfinal in 28 years. Kane dropped deeper than ever to allow the wingers to run off him and create chances.

8. Antoine Griezmann’s performance in the quarter final against Uruguay makes him one of the stars of the tournament.

7. Eden Hazard’s role in getting his team to the semi finals can’t be underestimated as he looks to engineer a move to Real Madrid after the tournament.
