Several fans rushed the field during the second half of the World Cup Final between France and Croatia on Sunday, momentarily stopping play.

Fans charged the field during a thrilling segment of play, with France leading 2-1, as French star Kylian Mbappe couldn't covert a breakaway goal, then Croatia began a counterattack on a lopsided field.

Refs blew the whistle, however, as security chased four fans on the pitch, while Fox's commentators groaned about the delay.

According to one report, the fans appeared to be Croatian and dressed as ambulance drivers. They were eventually tackled and taken off the field.

The players, meanwhile, argued with the referees about who should get the ball afterward. Croatia kept possession, but nothing developed from their play afterward.
