The breathless 4-2 victory under stormy skies at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium means Didier Deschamps' side – balancing youthful vitality and tournament nous – have buried the pain of their defeat in the Euro 2016 final on home soil.

For Croatia, a country of just four million people, the loss spells bitter pain but fans at home will celebrate the best run in the nation's history, which featured a stunning win against Argentina and a semi-final victory against England.
