  • CM2018: L'arbitre de Croatie-Angleterre désigné

La Croatie a rejoint la France en finale de la Coupe du monde de football après avoir battu l'Angleterre 2-1 après prolongations mercredi soir au stade Loujniki de Moscou.

Mario Mandzukic marque finalement le deuxième but à la 109e minute pour la Croatie.

Dimanche, la Croatie disputera, pour la première fois, la finale de la Coupe du Monde.

Déjà brillante à l'Euro en France en 2016, avec un succès de gala face à l'Espagne en poules (2-1), elle avait échoué en 8es face au futur vainqueur, le Portugal, après prolongation (0-1).

Kieran Trippier a ouvert le score pour les Anglais sur coup franc après 5 minutes.

Même émoussés physiquement par des prolongations en huitièmes contre le Danemark puis en quarts contre le pays hôte russe, avec supplément tirs au but dans les deux cas, les "Vatreni" (enflammés) n'ont jamais baissé les bras, géré au mieux temps forts et temps faibles. Une finale inédite qui promet d'être spectaculaire.

C'est le Turc Cuneyt Cakir qui sera au sifflet de la rencontre. Plus frais, et redoutables en contre, les Anglais tapaient le poteau via un tir de Kane (30e). Et le physique est revenu.

Les Croates ont effacé un déficit d'un but dans un troisième match de suite, après qu'Ivan Perisic eut créé l'égalité avec une volée imparable à la 68e minute de jeu. Perisic a, pour l'occasion, signé son 20e but à l'occasion de sa 70e sélection avec la Croatie. "Ce n'est pas vraiment un miracle, on a accompli quelque chose que seuls les grands joueurs peuvent accomplir".

Et pourtant, un peu plus tôt, les Anglais avaient cru pouvoir reprendre l'avantage sur une tête de John Stones.

En 1998, Didier Deschamps soulevait la Coupe du monde comme capitaine de la France sur le terrain.
