Antoine Griezmann’s free kick brushed the top of Mandzukic’s head and sailed over his own goalkeeper to give France a 1-0 lead in the 18th minute of the game at Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium.

Mandzukic scored the extra-time winner for Croatia against England in Wednesday’s semi-final to send them through to the final.
