Despite a sharp start from Croatia in the second half, it was France who took a commanding lead as after Pogba saw his initial effort charged down, he kept his composure to drill his second shot into the back of the net, as seen in the video below.

It was a top finish from the Manchester United ace, with Kylian Mbappe scoring a fourth for France just minutes later before a major Hugo Lloris blunder gave Mandzukic a goal at the right end to give Croatia slim hope in the latter stages of the game.
