Croatia's Mario Mandzukic achieved a dubious record when he was guilty of scoring an own goal in the FIFA World Cup 2018 final in Moscow.

Mandzukic became the first player to score an own goal in a World Cup final when he headed Antoine Griezmann's free-kick into his own net in the 18th minute.

This was also and unfortunately 12th own goal of a record-breaking tournament in Russia.

Griezmann's free-kick brushed the top of Mandzukic's head and sailed over his own goalkeeper to give France a 1-0 lead at the Luzhniki Stadium.

However, Ivan Perisic levelled 10 minutes later but Croatia's joy was shortlived as Antoine Griezmann converted a penalty in the 38th minute to France a 2-1 half-time lead.

A short while ago, France was leading 4-1.
