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.
