France crowned world champions

France crowned world champions

Mbappe scored in France's 4-2 victory over Croatia in Moscow to become the second youngest player after Pele to do so in a World Cup final and Deschamps said he hopes there is more to come from the 19-year-old.

The national team, for whom he won 103 caps and also the European Championship as a player, came calling in 2012.

Croatia beat England to reach the finals while France beat Belgium to also reach the finals.

French President Emmanuel Macron, along with his wife Brigitte, will leave Moscow straight after the 2018 FIFA World Cup final between France and Croatia, the French embassy informed TASS on Sunday. "I am really happy", he said.

According to Dabi, France's Euro championship win in 2000 and its defeat in the 2006 World Cup final had no impact on the French presidents at the time, although Macron - who is sometimes dismissively called the "president of the rich" - may reap some short-term benefits.

It highlighted what I believe is still the fatal flaw when it comes to VAR - the fact that the on-field referee makes the key decision.

Former Chelsea striker, Didier Drogba, has tipped France forward, Kylian Mbappe, to win the Ballon D'Or award. "I booked at the wrong time, but that's ok".

While there were questions asked after a far-from-inspiring start, which included a controversial win over Australia and narrowly beating Peru, France still expectedly secured a knockout round spot early from a first round group where they were heavy favourites.




"This team have worked so hard to get where we are, we've managed one of the greatest achievements in the world of refereeing".

Although France were crowned world champions, Giroud has flattered to deceive on a personal level.

World Cup Daily: France win the World Cup, but Croatia do themselves proud.

"We have created an opportunity to become world champions but we are still not there".

He said: 'I do not know where I am!

About 12 minutes after play resumed, Mbappe sent a right-footed shot past Croatia goalkeeper Danijel Subasic.

Deschamps said 14 of his players were World Cup newcomers but were ready to work towards a common goal and were mentally more mature than their age. We can not wait to lift the cup and bring it back to France'.
