What is the best way to celebrate 20 years of the first World Cup won by the Blues? By winning a second! The players of the French team have again entered the story this Sunday by hanging a second star in their jersey.

The Blues have won 4 goals to 2 against the Croats in the final of the 2018 World Cup in Russia that will mark the spirits forever.

A final with six goals

Because the scenario was daunting. France opened the scoring in the 18th minute with a free kick by Antoine Griezmann deflected by Croatian striker Mario Mandzukic in his own net. But Croatia equalized in the 27th minute thanks to a goal from Ivan Perisic. France then took the lead on a Griezmann penalty in the 36th after a Croatian hand in the box.

In the second half, the France team took off thanks to a magnificent strike from Paul Pogba in the 59th minute, followed in the 65th by Mbappé, who was also voted the tournament’s best youngster.

With three goals of gaps, France seemed to be safe but the euphoria is a little down with the monumental mistake of Lloris who offered the 4-2 ball Mario Mandzukic trying to dribble (69). But France held its result until the final whistle to win its second star.

“It’s so wonderful”

A symbol for coach Didier Deschamps, the captain in 1998, who is the third man to win a World Cup both as a player and coach. He also managed to win with methods similar to those of Aime Jacquet, in 98: defensive strength and a collective ready for all sacrifices.
