Griezmann: 'I don’t care about the Ballon d'Or, only the World Cup!'
• The Atletico Madrid forward has scored three times for Les Bleus and set up two more as they have made their way to Sunday’s final in Moscow against Croatia.
• As one of their stars, it is natural that Griezmann has been linked with major individual honours, such as the Ballon d’Or, but the forward would readily trade that in for victory on Sunday.
"It’s a chance to win the World Cup, not the Ballon d’Or," he stressed. "I don’t care if I win the Ballon d’Or or not – I’d give everything to be a world champion."
"Maybe if I was the top scorer in the competition, we would have lost. I thought that by scoring few goals, we could win.
"I understand the game… We’re all better together, helping each other in our efforts to play as a team."
