The 2018 FIFA football World Cup tournament, taken place in Russia between June 14 and July 15 2018, was the 21st edition of the quadrennially held international soccer competition. It was the first time the competition held in Eastern Europe, as Russia becomes the eighth European nation to host the tournament. The selection of Russia as host of the world cup makes them the largest country geographically to ever host the tournament, while Qatar—the succeeding host nation, scheduled to host the tournament in 2022—will not only become the first Middle-Eastern nation to host the tournament, but will also become the smallest country geographically to ever do so.

France’s 19-year-old striker Kylian Mbappe, who became the second teenager after Pele to score in World Cup final, picked up the best young player of the tournament.

 

Fair Play award Winner of FIFA World Cup 2018

Spain, who were knocked out 3-4 on penalties by hosts Russia in the round of 16, bagged the Fair Play award.

In the World Cup final, France dominated Croatia 4-1 to win their second-ever World Cup at the Luzhniki Stadium. Coach Didier Deschamps became the third person to win the Cup as a player and as a coach. Paul Pogba and Kylian Mbappe fired stunning goals in the second-half to seal the match for France. Croatia held majority of the possession in the first-half but conceded goals off set-pieces as Mandzukic scored an own goal, first in a World Cup final, and Ivan Perisic gifted France to take the lead with a penalty in the 38th minute.
