Marks Maponyane: France deservedly won the Wold Cup

Marks Maponyane, former Bafana Bafana player, says France deservedly won the World Cup against Croatia on Sunday evening.

France won the World Cup for the second time by ending battling Croatia’s dream of a first title with a 4-2 victory in one of the most entertaining and action-packed finals for decades.

That was not scraping through that was winning convincingly but Croatia to be honest is the side that should have won because they worked hard. Croatia went the extra mile.

Maponyane says this final was entertaining because of the goals produced.

I was pleasantly surprised that the World Cup gave us more goals. 4-2 is something you don’t think about, you think of 1-0.
