And that’s perfectly fine... But don’t act like that negates everything else...
TBF because those 2 goals was in a half that France wasn't noticable in the field, they were a game changer.

Not that France didn't play well during WC, but today their first half was not in the standards of a WC winner.


Neither is being outplayed by Algeria... Neither is being unable to beat Denmark or Russia... That happens in these tournaments... They were even close in 2014... TBH they were the most consistent team if the last 4 years - and they deserve a trophy for it!

Is there someone you feel indifferent about, that you don't love or hate but just, you know, feel neutral about?

Why do you make it a habit to:
1) be ambiguous in your post
2) be offensive?

^ This. Congratulations to the first African football team to have won the World Cup!

BTW, the first goal was a farce. Griezmann dived even the Fox commentator reluctantly agreed after three replays that it was a dive.

Croatians can be proud of their team. Dominated the “French” in midfield but their defenders let them down.

Croatia so so unlucky! A free kick that never was and a penalty that will be debated for years!

The referee even stopped a quick set piece at the end and allowed France to get in shape and then those two idiots who invaded the pitch when Croatia had a chance to counterattack!

Ah if only luck was with Croatian!! :(

I hope there are massive celebrations in Ghana, Cameroon, Algeria, Morocco, Mali, Angola and Congo! First African World Cup win at last :D

I'm sure you can come up with yet another way to say the same stuff once again... It’s your specialty, after all!

I don’t think so. Please note that the African origin theory has been seriously challenged in light of recent developments.

I would have loved a true African team to win it...

Which is still up for debate as question marks in the captions already suggest...
Also, that's not even the point... The point is it’s racist shit... Nations are a human invention... Nothing more, nothing less... Acting like it’s some natural thing is just plain stupid...

Well deserved WC trophy for France. A NT that can leave out of the WC players like Benzema, Coman, Martial and still become Champions.


I think that France didn't come in good form into the tournament just like Germany or Spain, but their players were hungry for trophies after what happened in 2016. Credit to Deschamps for this perfectly balanced team with a rock solid defense, strong midfield and deadly attack.

You can say France were lucky as they always scored a goal first and could play with the tempo of the game, but they were also in a delicate situation after being 2-1 down against Argentina and yet managed to roll past them


ramsej please stop crying !!

You can always find excuses for everything. If you didn't want Germany to win the WC in 2014 you could argue that they were very lucky in the final with all the goal chances Higuain, Messi, Aguero or Palacio missed. You could also say that Argentina should have been given a penalty after Neuer almost killed Higuain so Germany are some fuc*ing lucky cheaters that undeservedly won the WC :o

France made their way to the Championship topping their group, playing the toughest part of the draw (Argentina, Uruguay, Belgium) and they beat them all within 90 minutes

Croatia needed 3 OT's and 2 penalty shoot outs against far weaker opposition
