French President Macron has plenty of fun at World Cup final

French President Macron has plenty of fun at World Cup final

The 49-year-old said: "It is a pleasure and a privilege to be here and I will tell my players there is nothing more handsome for a player than the World Cup final". "Today there were imperfections, we did not do everything right but we had those mental and psychological qualities which were decisive for this World Cup".

Belgium´s players criticised the tactics France used in their 1-0 semi-final win as Didier Deschamps´ team sat deep and Samuel Umtiti´s headed goal came from a corner, but Griezmann dismissed the criticism.

Mbappe followed in Pele's footsteps by scoring in a World Cup final as a teenager, taking France 4-1 ahead with a low effort from distance past a statuesque Danijel Subasic for his fourth goal of the tournament.

"For any kid who loves football, the dream is to get to the World Cup final", he told FIFA's website.

"If Croatia can win then we will all be able to dream of doing it", Belgium coach Roberto Martinez said on the eve of the game, spelling out that the dominance of the tournament by the larger, established footballing super powers could be at an end. Talent alone is not sufficient.

It's no surprise that Fortnite has become a sensation in the world of gaming, and it's become the go-to game for athletes who have a lot of downtime between practices and game time when you need to take your mind off of a nerve-wracking game.




Griezmann may have been denied in two finals in 2016 but this year he's played in two more and decided both of them.

They played extra time in all of them and needed penalties against the Danes and hosts Russian Federation. I've seen him play the last few years and I know the people who helped him to be the player he is now.

"Those 23 players will now be linked forever whatever happens".

"World champion? It's a insane thing", he said. "And, of course, we are ready to share our experience of hosting the World Cup this year with our friends in Qatar", Putin said.

"The Euro final was different". The embassy representative said that the exact time of the president's arrival is unknown.

Croatia boss Zlatko Dalic gave a comparatively sombre address and there were no player break-ins or group singalongs for the runners-up.
