Mbappe, Mandzukic, Umtiti and the Goal Pressure Index Team of the Week

The France starlet shone once more as his side saw off Belgium while the Croatian scored a crucial extra-time goal to secure a dream final

And then there were two. France and Croatia will duke it out in the World Cup final on Sunday.

Semi-finals can often be nervy affairs, but France sensation Kylian Mbappe lit up his country's clash with Belgium on Tuesday evening.

The Paris Saint-Germain prodigy danced past the Red Devils defence on more than one occasion and almost provided the assist of the tournament for Olivier Giroud, who couldn't convert from close range. Nevertheless, Mbappe did enough to earn himself a score of 89/100 on the Goal Pressure Index, presented by Sure and powered by Opta.

Mbappe is joined in the Team of the Round by his compatriot Samuel Umtiti, who proved pivotal to Les Bleus' victory with a crucial goal at one end and a strong defensive performance at the other.

The Barcelona star dealt expertly with the threat of Lukaku, Hazard et al as France kept their fourth clean sheet of the tournament, earning himself a healthy score of 88/100.

At the other end, Croatia's Mario Mandzukic became an instant national hero when his goal sent his country through at the expense of England. 

The Juventus star's clinical finish in the second half of extra time sent Croatians wild and bagged him a score of 87/100.
