France beat Croatia 4-2 in the World Cup final to claim their second World Cup win

"The French team won, although it looked like an African team".

France won its second World Cup title on Sunday by defeating Croatia 4-2 at Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.

The head of Premiers de Cordee (First in Line), Sebastien Ruffin, says two weeks before France clinched the World Cup he was informed that Mbappe would give the group his bonus if the team qualified for the quarterfinals.

"1998 was magical! Tonight my son has the chance to experience the same happiness", Eric Rodenas, 42, told AFP with his son Raphael, who had travelled from France's south coast to the capital.

'Better Than Super': Russia Reacts To Trump-Putin Summit In Helsinki
On Tuesday, Mr Trump said he had reviewed the transcript and realised he needed to clarify. Trump made the comment Wednesday while answering questions during a Cabinet meeting.

The 2km Champs Elysees, the Arc de Triomphe and the vast Place de la Concorde turned into a heaving sea of people on Sunday night, waving red, white and blue flags, setting off firecrackers and blowing hooters until early morning.

The squad also received France's highest civic award, the Legion of Honour.

The transport authority tweeted on Monday that the Champs-Elysees Clemenceau has become the Deschamps-Elysees Clemenceau to honor national team coach Didier Deschamps.

Laurent Joffrin, editor of the leftwing Liberation newspaper, said they had lived up to the ideal of "the republic that we love: united and diverse, patriotic and open, national without being nationalist". From the last-16 onwards his side never really looked like losing, even when they went behind against Argentina.

However, she declared, that's "just not the case". "I'd rather he be jealous than completely fine with it", Seyfried said. You may be doing something improving on Friday night; going to an exhibition or some clever talk at a museum.

Youth from the home club of Kylian Mbappe, the 19-year-old breakout star from the Paris suburb of Bondy, were present at the victory party.

The team will have a private meeting with Macron and his wife Brigitte, and then they will enter the palace's gardens where Macron is expected to make a speech.

Photographers captured French President Emmanuel Macron erupting in absolute glee celebrating his team's victory. Police fired tear gas as sporadic clashes broke out in Paris, Lyon, Strasbourg and Rouen.

"I warn the whole world about the emergence of this risky segregationist, racist and xenophobic political current that threatens to attack the peoples of the world, to divide humanity more, and to create more wars around the world", Maduro said.

Jeremy Lin traded to Hawks
The move helps clear up the Nets' logjam at point guard and sends Lin to another team that is also pretty crowded at the position. After struggling to find a spot in the NBA, Lin landed with the New York Knicks and subsequently took the city by storm.
