"A score of 4-2 in a final - I can't remember seeing a score like that and few people could", Putin said.

The 2017 Golden Boy award victor is entitled to £17,000 plus bonuses for every game he plays, but being a patron of the Preiers de Cordees association, a charity which looks to organise sports activities for children with disabilities, he doesn't deem it to be necessary and so has made the wonderful gesture, as per L'Equipe.

People in red and white checkered jerseys at the Edmonton Croatia Soccer Club watching the 2018 World Cup final where France defeat Croatia four to two.

FRANCE'S jubilant players have crashed their coach's post-match news conference, dancing and singing while spraying both champagne and water. My team made it to second in the world, and I'm proud of them.

Others tweeted phrases including "Immigration makes France stronger", and "Immigrants get the job done".

During the 69th minute of the match with France 4-1 up, Lloris made a mess of a backpass and allowed Croatia worldwide striker Mario Mandzukic to score an easy goal. Thousands of Croat fans are expected to come to the main Zagreb square in the early afternoon when the players are due to arrive.

That game was against France as well, and back then they were defeated too.

"I feel so good!"

Mario Mandzukic typified their efforts, running himself into the ground in the lone striker role but taking his chance to score the victor clinically when it presented itself almost 20 minutes into extra time.

France's 4-2 win marked France's second World Cup title in 20 years. "I am sure we will see an interesting, intense, close match which millions of spectators across the world will enjoy", he said.

Many fans from around the world have also spoken of a positive experience at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Deschamps, who joins the elite company of Franz Beckenbauer and Mario Zagallo as those to have won the World Cup on the pitch and from the dugout, praised the tournament for its unpredictability - especially regarding the strong performances of so-called smaller nations.

"But that in no way diminishes France's win".
