An own goal, VAR and memories of Pele

"At the moment my players don't really know what it is to be world champions but I told them two things". "Football players Dimitri Payet and Laurent Koscielny, who were injured before the tournament, also form part of the delegation".

Hundreds of thousands partied on the capital's most famous boulevard after France's semi-final victory against Belgium last Tuesday with the crowds on Sunday expected to rival those of 1998 when more than one million gathered there.

Machakos soccer fanatics are rallying behind Croatia to beat France in today's World Cup finals. We merit it. I am very happy for this team.

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.

And even though many are in a rush to announce the Ballon d'Or victor, how each of these players do in Sunday's final will be a factor. The embassy representative said that the exact time of the president's arrival is unknown. We came back and we managed to make the difference. I think that in the group matches it went ok even though a lot of French journalists after our third match against Denmark were saying we were not very attractive, but we were qualified and we had seven points and we came first in our group so it wouldn't have been sufficient if we had carried on with the same performance level.
