With the Fifa World Cup final between France and Croatia being held today, football fans across the world are waiting baited breath to see who lifts the trophy. The newspapers The Calcutta Times reported in its printed edition that they spoke to Tv stars who are ardent supporters of the sport, to find out who are they cheering for in the grand finale. 

Here are some of the sentences Goran Ivanišević told them when they asked him why he is supporting Croatia.

'They are living the underdog dream king- size the World Cup. If they win, it will probably be the biggest upset ever in World Cup history! Goooo Croatia!

You still can't forget another Croa underdog story, that of Goran Ivanišević, who is the only player to win Wimbledon as a wildcard in 2001. It's one victory, no true lover that Croatia can't forget.

Because the team's win against Big Brother Russia in the quarters was the biggest 'take that!' moment of the world cup. The home ground advantage is damned.

Kylian Mbappe may be good, but Luka Modrić is better. The talismanic Croatian captain has swung the tempo in his team's favor again and again despite remarkable missed penalty against Denmark.

Head says France, heart says Croatia. And in Kolkata the city with a heart-you know that means you'll end up supporting Croatia,' said Ivanišević for The Calcutta Time printed edition.
