WINNERS: Benjamin Mendy's France win the 2018 World Cup

Benjamin Mendy is a World Cup winner!

France’s 4-2 win over Croatia in the final at Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium means the Manchester City defender will return to the Club having played a part in securing the ultimate prize for his country.

Mario Mandzukic’s own goal gave France the lead against the run of play, but Ivan Perisic’s brilliant strike saw Croatia deservedly equalise.

Antoinne Griezmann struck a penalty seven minutes before half-time, and Paul Pogba’s brilliant second-half strike from the edge of the area made it 3-1.

Kylian Mbappe became the first teenager since Pele in 1958 to score a goal in a World Cup final to seal victory for Didier Deschamp’s side.

Mandzukic cut the arrears when he capitalised on Lloris’ error but France held firm to secure the win.

It’s the second time France have won the trophy - their first coming on home soil in 1998 - and they are now the sixth nation to win the prize more than once.

Everyone at City would like to congratulate Benjamin and the rest of the France squad on winning the trophy.
