It was a whirlwind of a first half for Ivan Perisic in Sunday’s 2018 FIFA World Cup Final.

The Croatian winger came up huge for his country when he delivered the game-tying goal against France just 10 minutes after teammate Mario Mandzukic headed in his own goal to give Les Bleus a 1-0 lead.

But after the high of finding the back of the net, Perisic came back down to earth via a controversial call.

Perisic was flagged for a handball in the penalty area in the 38th minute, and Antoine Griezmann capitalized on Croatia’s misfortune by converting from the spot to give France its second lead of the match.
