France vs. Croatia – Highlights
If you somehow managed to miss out on the match, and were unable to see the highly competitive showdown, then here is a chance for you to watch the highlights, unless you want to be out of the loop? No? Didn’t think so.
Honorable Mentions – Players
Despite criticism, Deschamps’ faith in Paul Pogba paid off in the form of a goal. What is interesting is that said goal is the first to be scored by a player from Manchester United in a World Cup final.
On the other hand, Kylian Mbappe was all smiles during the national anthem, but struggled to do anything worthwhile on the field, until he finally came alive and scored the final goal, sealing France’s victory in the World Cup. By doing so, Mbappe has gone down in history as the first-ever teenager to make his way to the finals since Pele way back in 1958.
Post World Cup Optimism
With France’s victory, there is air of optimism, with its people feeling really good about themselves. Homes are now adorned with tricolors, while enlistment for the armed forces has increased, while the far-right does not have a monopoly on the country’s symbols anymore.
France’s football team projects patriotic fervour and ethnic diversity. Seeing France’s dark period of football, the team has been fighting back under Deschamps, and has finally managed to make its way back to the top.
