French kisses up the World Cup
he team is blessed with a second chance to the world.
France won the World Cup 20 years after the home league. The Blues won 4-2 in Croatia in the final.
Didier Deschamp gave the kiss to the Cup he raised 20 years ago as captain of France. The 49-year-old became the third champion on both player and coach roles. Previously, Mario Zagallo and Franz Beckenbauer did this.
Antoine Griezmann marked the biggest career title. He finished second in the Champions League and Euro in 2016. Griezmann scored four goals in the 2018 World Cup and made his mark on three of the four goals in the final. Along with the Europa League title with Atletico last season, Griezmann became a heavyweight champion for the 2018 Golden Globe.
Mbappe won the title of World Cup Young Player of the Year. He scored four goals and made a great contribution to the club's success, despite not reaching the age of 20. Mbappe became the second player under 20 years old to score in the final after Pele in 1958.
Paul Pogba's brothers Florentin Pogba and Mathias Pogba came down to share the joy with France. These two players choose to play for Guinea national team instead of looking for opportunities in the blue shirt.
