Croatia will open and close the tournament in their traditional red and white checkers.

After wearing their black and navy blue alternate kit for five matches in a row at the 2018 World Cup, Croatia will go back to their classic red & white checkers for the final.

Croatia will wear their famous red and white checkered shirt with white shorts and white socks in Sunday’s final against France.

France has been nominated by the draw as the ‘home’ team and will wear navy blue shirts, shorts and socks. Under FIFA’s strict colour-clashing policy, Croatia would not be able to wear their black and navy blue even if they wanted to.

Croatia opened the World Cup with a 2-0 win over Nigeria in their traditional red and white checkers. They will now close the tournament in it.

Croatia’s keeper Danijel Subasic will be in all green, whilst France’s keeper will wear all yellow. The ref will wear turquoise.

The black and navy blue kit has been a lucky kit since it was introduced during the team’s US tour in March. In eight matches in the black and navy blue kit, Croatia has won 7 (Mexico, Senegal, Argentina, Iceland, Russia, Denmark and England) and lost just once (Peru).

Croatia will meet France in the World Cup final in Moscow at 5 pm CET on Sunday 15 July 2018.
