Less then 2 months after the royal wedding we have another reason to get up early on the weekend again — Sunday morning at 8 am PT marks the World Cup Final between Croatia and France!
This is the first time Croatia has ever been in the final (they came in 3rd in 1998) and the third time for France. France won the cup in 1998.
So what do you need to know if you’re a rookie but want to still be in the know come Sunday’s viewing parties (and morning refreshments and brunch 😉)?
Croatia’s colors are red and white checkerboard, but lately they’ve been wearing black and blue. France is Red and blue.
