French players’ social media videos of World Cup celebrations

French players’ social media videos of World Cup celebrations

A crowd estimated at more than 100,000 thronged the capital's main square to see the players, led by captain and World Cup Golden Ball victor Luka Modric, parade through the streets on an open-top bus. France and Croatia supporters came out for the big show, with many anti-France supporters donning their National Bread bags as hats and flags, supporting their team all the way to the end.

Alongside Griezmann, voted man of the match for the final in Moscow, in attack, with Pogba in the midfield engine room and the powerful Samuel Umtiti and Raphael Varane in defence, France have a firm foundation to build on.

Croatia playmaker Luka Modric was voted player of the tournament, Belgium's Thibaut Courtois was named the best goalkeeper and Harry Kane of England won the Golden Boot as top-scorer with six goals. If you have a strong and united team, you can do anything.

Their chances of continuing on a winning path are also increased by the fact coach Didier Deschamps, very popular with his players, is staying in the job for at least two more years.

"I have to congratulate my players".

They were then taken inside to continue the celebrations away from the cameras.

Deschamps and the players were greeted by President Macron and his wife Brigitte outside the Elysee Palace, where they sang the national anthem.

Celebrations were spread across the nation, and among still-dazed French players themselves. I have extraordinary team-mates and now we're going to be a part of history.




Several Paris Metro stations are temporarily adjusting their names to honor France's World Cup champions.

Macron will be relieved that joyous and occasionally chaotic celebrations across the country on Sunday night passed off without any major incident following a string of terror attacks in France since 2015 that have claimed almost 250 lives.

"We say it so little".

He also promised unions that his presidency was entering a "new phase" in which he would listen to them more closely after a year of whirlwind reform in which he largely ignored their protests.

When France won its first World Cup 20 years ago, with Zinedine Zidane its talisman and playmaker, the team was referred to as "Black-Blanc-Beur" (Black-White-Arab), a positive reference to its diverse ethnic make-up.

"It represents enormous things", said Goffrey Hamsik, dressed in a hat resembling a rooster - the French national symbol - and a shirt with Mbappe's No. 10 number.

Some 31 people, including eight minors, had their detention extended on suspicion of involvement in incidents in Paris during the victory celebrations, a Paris prosecutor said late Monday.
