"Great World Cup. Question for President Trump as he meets Putin: Do you know which team you play for?" Clinton, Trump's opponent in the 2016 presidential election, tweeted on Sunday night.

Her tweet came after France beat Croatia 4-2 to win the 2018 World Cup in Sochi, Russia.

Trump congratulated Putin for hosting the "truly great" tournament.

"Congratulations to France, who played extraordinary soccer, on winning the 2018 World Cup. Additionally, congratulations to President Putin and Russia for putting on a truly great World Cup Tournament -- one of the best ever!" Trump tweeted.

Trump made the social media post while en route to Helsinki for his meeting with Putin.

The summit comes days after special counsel Robert Mueller handed down indictments against 12 Russian intelligence officers for conspiring to interfere in the 2016 presidential election.

Mueller charged 11 of the officers with conspiring to hack into the Democratic National Committee (DNC) Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee networks.

Trump has being criticized by lawmakers from both sides of the aisle for his reluctance to condemn Putin and Russia for the meddling.

The president reacted to Friday's indictment by blaming former President Obama and the "deep state."
