France are now officially World Cup holders after beating Croatia 4-2 in Moscow.

"If I had been playing, the match probably would not have finished", said furious Estudiantes president Juan Veron after his side's 2-0 defeat.

The main course today was of course the actual World Cup final. We tried to stay relaxed this time and the players knew what they had to do and what was at stake.
