As per report Croatia head coach Zlatko Dalic feels his team played the best match of the FIFA World Cup despite losing 4-2 to France in the final here on Sunday. Dalic quoted as saying after that the game that "He congratulated France on their title and added they played well in the first 20 minutes, we controlled the game, then there was an own goal from a set play. They came back to life, dominated and then the penalty was given”.
