These Kids Recreated The World Cup Final And It Makes For Brilliant Viewing

As a youngster, there's nothing better than being out on the pitch recreating games and modelling yourself on your idols. And so these young lads decked out in their kits and playing out Sunday's World Cup final is officially our new favourite thing.

Filmed by Russian TV channel RT, kids from a Moscow football school re-enacted France's 4-2 triumph over Croatia in Moscow - with each youngster taking on the role of one of the players in the game and having their name and number on the back, whether it be Les Bleus' hero Kylian Mbappe or Dejan Lovren.

All of key moments in the game, including goal celebrations, were captured perfectly in the exact minute they occurred in, starting with Mario Mandzukic flicking Antoine Griezmann's free-kick into the net 18 minutes in, before junior Ivan Perisic wallopped in the equaliser.

We even had the little man in the middle go to VAR for the controversial penalty that saw Perisic penalised for handball -and allowed mini Griezmann to slot home his fourth of the tournament and celebrate with his usual 'Take the L' Fortnite dance.

The lads who assumed the roles of Paul Pogba and Mbappe both hit their second half strikes from distance with the same level of venom the real players did in the final, and the hilarious recreation was complete with Hugo Lloris' gaffe to gift Mandzukic's Croatia second and make the score 4-2.

It finishes off with the victors lifting a replica World Cup and celebrating their big triumph.

If you're having withdrawal symptoms from the World Cup final already, then it's absolutely in your best interests to watch this for two minutes.

In fact, the youngsters are so great that we're dying for a World Cup moments re-enactment from them. Cristiano Ronaldo's hat-trick against Spain, Neymar falling over, Iran's legendary throw-in, Egypt's 45-year old goalkeeper Essam El-Hadary saving a penalty and Mbappe tearing Argentina a new one just to name a few.
