France's World Cup heroes arrive home to victory parade

If France wins more than a million people are expected to flock to Paris’s Champs-Élysées

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.

The team is expected to take a victory lap down the grand Champs-Elysees.

"We're so proud of this team, they have truly become our players", said Priscilla Lagneaux, 28, who was waiting with friends. Social media manager at National Bakery Jadesion Swiel told The Gleaner that for obvious reasons, the company had been supporting Croatia since the 2014 World Cup.

Goalie Hugo Lloris, brandishing the golden trophy from soccer's eminent tournament, and coach Didier Deschamps led the team from the Air France plane to the tarmac at Charles de Gaulle Airport. "Though most of the students counted Croatia as favourites, the performance of Mbappe and Pogba impressed them all".

"We're not in 1998", said Mounir Mahjoubi, the secretary of state for digital affairs, whose parents emigrated from Morocco.

Trump tries to ease tensions with May after incendiary interview
But on Friday, Trump gave a press conference with May in which he said on Brexit, "Whatever you're going to do is OK with us". Liberal Democrat leader Sir Vince Cable said the United States president "now chooses our leaders".

But that will not be the only tribute, as the office of Macron said on Monday that France's players will all be awarded the Legion of Honour, the highest recognition for "exceptional service" to the country.

Newspapers printed celebratory stories about France's second World Cup title. Before the Chinese wouldn't have been bothered who won, but now they want to know.

So it seems EA's "Predictor" isn't as reliable as one may think by looking at 2018's world champions, but they didn't do badly. "I don't regret not going on vacation this summer".

"This team is attractive because it was united", Mr Macron told them.

Both superstars have now taken part in three different World Cups, with the Argentine coming closest to lifting the famous Jules Rimet trophy but missing out to Germany in the final in 2014. "We have a slogan pasted on our team bus: small country with big dreams". Later the team attended a lavish dinner at the posh Hotel de Crillon. "We've had lots of problems in France these past years", he said, recalling deadly terror attacks. Police fired tear gas as sporadic clashes broke out in Paris, Lyon, Strasbourg and Rouen.

Talking about the players of African origin in his team, the player of the final said, "It is the France we love, don't we?"

"Thanks to you all!"

"History Made", said the sports newspaper L'Equipe.
