Which country won the last World Cup?

World Cup 2022 is here. Who won the last iteration of the tournament in 2018 when it was held in Russia?

In a few weeks, we will know which country topped the 2022 World Cup, which is being held in Qatar.

Much like this year’s tournament is the first to be held in the Middle East, the venue in 2018 was also the first. Russia had not hosted the tournament before 2018.

Which country won the last World Cup in 2018?

The last World Cup winner was France in 2018, who beat Croatia in the final 4-2.

Host country Russia lost to Croatia in the quarter-finals.

En route to the final in 2018, France beat Argentina, Uruguay and Belgium before facing Croatia. Croatia and Argentina (France won 4-3) were the only two countries to score against France in knockout matches.

Croatia accounted for 61 percent of the final, making France’s victory all the more impressive. Croatia also had nearly twice as many shots taken as France, although France had three more shots on target than Croatia.

Prior to 2018, France last won the World Cup exactly 20 years ago.

Fans may recall that during the 2018 World Cup Final, a protest was organized by the members of the political art performance group Pussy Riot in which the band members entered the field of play and paused the game for a short period to draw attention to it. Their demands to the Russian government.

Because Qatar is the host city, some are wondering if it will stage similar protests at this year’s World Cup given disagreements with the country’s treatment of migrant workers and members of the LGBTQ community.

This year, France finds itself in Group D with Australia, Denmark and Tunisia.
