France and Croatia reached the last World Cup final in 2018 with Les Bleus adding a second star above their crest after a comprehensive 4-2 victory in Russia… but when is this year’s final?

Well, the 2022 Qatar World Cup final is scheduled to kick off at 15:00 GMT on Sunday, December 18 at the Lusail Stadium in Doha.
