The 2018 World Cup is over, and 20 years after capturing France’s first World Cup in home soil in 1998, Les Bleus brought the trophy back home on Sunday with a thrilling 4-2 victory over Croatia. It was the usual suspects scoring on Sunday, with Paul Pogba, Kylian Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann and, of course, the own goal giving France a 4-2 victory over a Croatia team that had an amazing run.
This was Paris’ watch party during the pregame. You could say it was a little excited.
