On Monday, July 16, the streets of Paris, France were flooded with football fans celebrating the national team’s World Cup victory.
France overcame a stubborn Croatia 4-2 at the Luzhniki Stadium on Sunday to win the trophy, a second one since the heroics of current coach Didier Deschamps in 1998.
A Mario Manzukic own goal in the 18th minute was cancelled out by an Ivan Perisic strike ten minutes later before Antoine Griezmann put Les Bleus ahead from the spot before the break.
Quickfire goals from Paul Pogba and Kylian Mbappe after the interval all but secured a second World Cup trophy for the French despite Croatia’s best efforts to launch a comeback courtesy of a Hugo Lloris howler allowing Mandzukic to poke in from close range.
After the final whistle, French players couldn’t hide the delight of winning the prestigious prize as fans worldwide took to the streets to join in the celebrations.
Mbappe received the FIFA Young player award as Croatia’s Luka Modric bagged the Golden Ball.
France President Emmanuel Macron was among the first people to congratulate the players, with Pogba seen wasting little time teaching the 40-year-old how to ‘DAB’.
‘Dabbing’ is a dance style popular with youth accustomed to Hip Hop or Trap music.
