The finalists have a friendly banter going on Twitter before facing off against each other

Almost 20 years ago, Croatia battled it out with France in the semi-finals of the 1998 Fifa World Cup. 

Croatia’s Davor Šuker gave his team a lead before a brace from French defender Lillian Thuram sealed the fate of the match. The French football team won the game by 2-1.

As the two sides prepare to renew rivalries in the World Cup Final in Moscow, some light-hearted Twitter trolling between the two nations has hit the web.

The official Croatian Football Federation account tweeted at their French counterparts, enquiring if Thuram might once again be on the pitch. 

France quipped that they would persuade him to “sit out” the final, so long as Croatia’s legendary Suker is not “unleashed” upon them.
