Last 10 World Cup finals


FIFA's premier tournament is taking place in the Middle East for the first time and it is promising to be the biggest and best event yet. Who will make it to the  final this time? Brazil are the favourites to win it, but England are being tipped to go all the way too - as are Germany and defending champions France.
Thrilling spectacle
Whoever make it to the showpiece final will no doubt provide football fans around the world with a thrilling spectacle - just like so many before.
The 2018 final was won by France who beat Croatia 4-2, while four years prior to that it was Germay that lifted the famous trophy after they beat Argentina.
If you can't remember who won it before that then worry not, here is a timely reminder of the last 10 World Cup finals...
2018 World Cup: France 4-2 Croatia
