WORLD CUP FINAL

France vs. Croatia

Attention casual soccer fans, it’s time to tune in (and have a mimosa)…soccer’s biggest stage is set for Sunday brunch.

Sports

CROATIA

  • 1st World Cup final in history.
  • 1st team to avoid defeat after trailing in three knockout matches.
  • 2nd smallest nation in World Cup history to make the final (after Uruguay.)
  • Team will finally get to wear famed (& favored) red & white shirts for the first time in a month (because they clashed with opponents).
Sports

FRANCE

  • One of the tournament favorites since the start.
  • Only won the World Cup once, 20 years ago (after beating Croatia semifinals.)
  • One CBS analyst described the team as a “terrific blend of youth, experience, speed & strength.”
Sports

The US men's team failed to qualify for this year's tournament for the first time since 1986 which has been trouble for TV ratings; Fox is expecting to lose money on this year's World Cup. Read more here & see complete list of World Cup winners.
