French Celebrate World Cup Victory

French Celebrate World Cup Victory

"The team selection reflected France's belief in the younger generation and this title win has also brought hope for the years to come for French football", shared Sylvain Choin, Director, Alliance Francaise de Chandigarh, Sector 36, as he cut a celebration cake along with teachers and students at the centre.

The victory comes 20 years after France's first World Cup win - on home soil, after a 3-0 defeat of Brazil in Paris - but many commentators note that the 2018 vintage comes at a time when the people feel needy.

"We're so proud of this team, they have truly become our players", said Priscilla Lagneaux, 28, who was waiting with friends under a wilting sun on the avenue.

The Arc de Triomphe is lit up with the colors of the French national flag and by fireworks set off by French soccer fans celebrating France's World Cup victory over Croatia, in Paris, France, Sunday, July 15, 2018. "Overall, Croatia played a great tournament and showed its strength and quality".

It is the second World Cup trophy for France since the tournament was held in the nation back in 1998.

"History Made" declared sports daily L'Equipe. "We've also had the pleasure of interacting with football fans from all over the world and given them an idea of the kind of hospitality they can expect in four years' time".

The French squad's victory will "undeniably" boost France's image overseas, she added: "Their reputation as a team with ambition will bolster France's reputation, because the country is now seen my many as both ageing and haughty. They were what people would call one of the "small sides", but they are "GIANTS" at heart, and we're happy to have had our brand associated with such an extraordinary team".

Only 39 percent of those polled by Odoxa said Macron was a good president, a 2 percentage point decrease since Odoxa's last poll on June 26. The team was honored with a parade along the Champs Elysees along with a special presidential ceremony.

The Victor Hugo stop, for example - named after the famous 19th-century writer - has become Victor Hugo Lloris, after the team's goalkeeper.

Notre-Dame des Champs station was renamed "Notre Didier Deschamps". There were many broken windows, an overturned vehicle and drawings on walls that included the phrase "Liberte, Egalite, Mbappe".

France's 19-year-old star Kylian Mbappe gestures from the balcony of the Elysee Palace during an official reception on Monday.

On the streets of the city left hundreds of thousands of citizens.
