France emerge victorious in front of a big crowd

The final of the 2018 World Cup was contested between Croatia and France, with the latter emerging victorious after an entertaining 4-2 victory. This marked France’s second success at the World Cup following their victory at their home tournament in 1998. The 2018 final was played at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, which had an official capacity of 80,000, making it the largest stadium at the 2018 World Cup, as well as being the largest soccer stadium in Russia. The official attendance at the final was recorded as 78,011, with the restricted number owing to FIFA regulations and crowd safety.
