Terrible call?

It was definitely a penalty

Why?

Anyway Croatia had 60% possessive but I was told the lower half had no business being in this final.

By the letter of the law, it’s a Grey area. Was it intentional? Was it in an unnatural position? Maybe, maybe not.

But the reality is, a situation like that (hand out to the side, not in front of the body, blocking a ball heading towards goal) a penalty is almost always given.

Croatia look good though, they can recover from this.
