The main course today was of course the actual World Cup final.

For all seven games Croatia played in Russian Federation, an ever-increasing group of fans gathered together in the dimly-lit basement of the church to cheer on their team.

France was also compared to former five-weight world boxing champion Floyd Mayweather, who always knew how much to give to win, but never gave more, even though he could.

Others tweeted phrases including "Immigration makes France stronger", and "Immigrants get the job done". Their progress to the final gripped the imagination of the Balkan nation and members of the Croatian diaspora living in countries from Germany to Australia.

The France manager's press conference was momentarily interrupted at the beginning when the players, led by goalscorer Paul Pogba, gatecrashed the conference room by joyously spraying water on the journalists in attendance and dancing on tables.

The game ended after five minutes were added to the final game before the whistle that heralded the French victory.

France, the heavy fan favorite, has won the World Cup once before, in 1998.

Pickford gets the upper hand to vindicate England coach Southgate
Fabian Delph has flown back out to rejoin the rest of the England squad at the World Cup following the birth of his third child. We've lost to Portugal a bunch of times, so yeah, I was aware and I'm just really pleased we've changed that.


Deschamps became just the third person to win the World Cup as a player and manager with Brazil's Mario Zagallo and German Franz Beckenbauer, after captaining France to the World Cup on home soil, but he deferred the honour to his players after the game.

Peter Sekulic, president of the Edmonton Croatia Soccer Club says although he is sad that they lost, he couldn't have asked for a better team.

"They're losing this game to a free-kick that wasn't a free-kick, and penalty that definitely wasn't penalty", English football legend Alan Shearer said. But let me comment on something: "In a World Cup final you don't give that penalty", Dalic said.

Many young fans were already asleep before kick-off, missing out on an electrifying equaliser, as Croatia scored in the first half.

But an error from goalkeeper Hugo Lloris offered Croatia some hope when Mandzukic found the back of the net to score their second goal.

Two hours earlier, a very different side of Macron was seen during a break of play to review a refereeing decision that changed the game in France's favor.
