Ahead of the World Cup final between France and Croatia, which happens to be the 900th game in the tournament's history, we compiled a list of key stats and figures that will be at play with the help of the ESPN Stats & Information Group.
The goalkeeper said the team were not being swept up by the wave of celebrations back home and were keeping their focus firmly on their shot of earning a second World Cup title after 1998 when they take on the Croatians in Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium.
Back then, two Lilian Thuram goals sunk a Croatia team playing in their first World Cup as an independent nation.
Mbappe was the first teenager to score in a World Cup final since Brazil's Pele in 1958, and Didier Deschamps became the third man to lift the trophy as player and coach - joining Germany's Franz Beckenbauer and Mario Zagallo of Brazil.
Griezmann, who has been celebrating goals with the dance from the video game since May, gave the celebration an airing on the biggest stage in France's World Cup final against Croatia.
"I hope we will overcome those today and that all my players will be ready to play in the final".
After a slow start in Russia, France have picked up form.
"They have displayed their physical and mental strengths and tomorrow we will need a great French team to win".
CROATIA 2, NIGERIA 0: Like France in its first match, Croatia uses a penalty kick and an own-goal to grab the lead in a group many identified as among the toughest. And yes, that includes France's first and only in 1998. "We are up against players of a high quality and with lots of experience", Matuidi said.
However a freekick in the 18th minute from Griezmann flicked off of Croatian star Mario Mandzukic's head and nestled into the far corner of the Croatian net. Is that about to change today, or will Les Bleus be adding a second gold star to those lovely blue shirts? But they also go into the clash after three tense and tiring extra-times, two of which they won thanks to a penalty shootout.
"Tomorrow is the World Cup final".
The World Cup 2018 has been full of drama, not to mention awesome soccer, including two intense one-goal games in the semifinals. "It has been hard for us but I am sure we will find the strength and motivation".
Against England in the Semi-Final, Croatia fell behind 2-1 only to score late to tie the game and then again with 5 minutes left in overtime to clinch the win.
"We took the hard path, probably we will be the only team at a World Cup to have played eight games to get to a final if you tally up all the minutes", admitted Dalic.
