The final took place on 15 July at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, between France and Croatia.
France won the match 4–2 to claim their second World Cup title, marking the fourth consecutive title won by a European team.
The 32 teams were drawn into 8 groups of 4, by selecting one team from each of the 4 ranked pots.
For the draw, the teams were allocated to four pots based on the FIFA World Rankings of October 2017.
Players in the final squad may be replaced for serious injury up to 24 hours prior to kickoff of the team's first match and such replacements do not need to have been named in the preliminary squad.
