Antoine Griezmann

France top star Antoine Griezmann has said the style of play the French team adopts against Croatia in the World Cup final on Sunday does not matter, as long as they win.

Belgium’s Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois criticised France’s display in their 1-0 semi-final win, which saw Didier Deschamps’ side conceding large amounts of possession to their European rivals.

Reacting, Griezmann said France will do whatever it takes to lift the World Cup for a second time.

He said: “Thibaut Courtois, he played at Atletico, he was a Spanish champion. With Chelsea, does he believe he is playing the football of Barcelona?”

“I don’t care how. I want a second star to be on this shirt, and if I have the star, I do not care about the game we have done.”
