France, one of the 2018 World Cup favorites from the beginning, is a -110 money line favorite on Sunday, meaning you'd need to wager $110 on the French winning in regulation to return $100.

"When they scored against Croatia, and for a long time after, it looked like England would win 1-0", he told the Paddy Power blog. "They've shown remarkable character", Southgate said.

Pogba took to Twitter shortly after France beat Belgium to advance to the World Cup final.

Kylian Mbappe, Paul Pogba and France are about to get that chance.
