France forward Antoine Griezmann said on Friday winning the World Cup against Croatia on Sunday was more important than how his team do it.

Belgium’s players criticised the tactics France used in their 1-0 semi-final win as Didier Deschamps’ team sat deep and Samuel Umtiti’s headed goal came from a corner, but Griezmann dismissed the criticism.

“I don’t care. I want the star [on my shirt for World Cup winners]. If I get that star, I don’t care about how we play,” the 27-year-old Atletico Madrid forward told a press conference at France’s training base outside Moscow.

France will enter the Final as the favourites when they clash against Croatia.
