France's Vincent Clerc insists that they will 'go to win' when they face New Zealand in the World Cup final this weekend.

Vincent Clerc is confident that France can beat New Zealand to be crowned world champions this weekend despite a lacklustre campaign.

The 30-year-old, who has claimed six tries in the tournament, insists that his national side will 'go to win' when they face the hosts.

"I don't feel like a future loser, or someone who has no chance," said Clerc.

"We're still in the final, and despite how we've played so far, it's Sunday that counts.

"If we're here now it's because we deserve to be here. We've said for a while now that we came here to be world champions. Maybe it hasn't been a dream run, but we're going there to win."

The two sides go head to head in the World Cup final at Eden Park this weekend.
