What's left to say? The Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup has been eulogised from all corners of the globe since it kicked off one month and a day ago. Today it ends as it started in the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, where France and Croatia will battle it out to be crowned world champions. And we'll tell you how to live stream every single second of the World Cup final, absolutely free regardless of where you are in the world.

Live stream the World Cup final - when and where

The 2018 World Cup final sees France vs Croatia at the magnificent 81,000 capacity Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.

Today's match (July 15) kicks off is at 6pm local time in Russia. That's 4pm BST or 8pm if you're reading this in France or Croatia. Elsewhere, you'll need to tune in at 11am ET, 8am PT or 1am AEST in Australia Monday morning.

So which way will this France vs Croatia World Cup final swing? Only the staunchest contrarian (or Croatian) would deny that France are the overwhelming favorites for the final. They've been the most impressive team throughout Russia 2018, and it's very hard to spot a single weakness in their side. Hugo Lloris has been fantastic in goal, Kylian Mbappé and Antoine Griezmann electric up front and N'Golo Kanté a pint-sized colossus in front of the defence. 20 years on from their first World Cup win, France will be brimming with confidence to make Russia 2018 their second.

But you can't count out Croatia just yet. The only team to win every single of their World Cup 2018 matches (albeit two on penalties and that extra time victory over England in the semi-final), it doesn't require a long memory to recall their 3-0 destruction of Argentina. And with Luka Modrić – arguably the world's finest midfielder – pulling the strings, it's not a stretch to imagine him lifting Croatia's first every World Cup when all's said and done in the World Cup final today.
