20 years after, France wins The World Cup again…

The 2018 World Cup has come to a close, and there seems to be a general consensus that the best team prevailed.

Didier Deschamps’ France ran out 4-2 winners over Croatia in Sunday’s showpiece, with goals from Antoine Griezmann, Paul Pogba and Kylian Mbappe firing them to victory after Mario Mandzukic opened the scoring with an unfortunate own goal.

The win summed up Les Bleus’ campaign in Russia: without ever really moving up to fifth gear they were ruthlessly effective, taking their chances even with Croatia dominating possession.
