France win World Cup Final 2018: LIVE reaction as Les Bleus beat Croatia to become champions for second time



Here’s some words from Didier Deschamps, who has become only the second man to lift the World Cup as a captain and manager, after Franz Beckenbauer.
“How marvellous! It’s a young team, who are on the top of the world. Some are champions at the age of 19. We did not play a huge game but we showed mental quality. And we scored four goals anyway. They deserved to win.”
“The group worked so hard and we had some tough moments along the way. It hurt so much to lose the Euros two years ago, but it made us learn too. The win is not about me, it’s the players who won the game.
“For 55 days, we have done a lot of work. It is the supreme coronation. We are proud to be French, to be Blues. The victory in the match belongs to them. Vive le Republic.

“How did France win, when Croatia had the world’s best defender in their team?” honks Woollie Madden. “It almost seems like France’s forward line was motivated by Dejan Lovren’s lack of respect.”
