French hero slammed for 'disrespectful' goal celebration

That was the highest percentage among any qualifying team in this year's World Cup.

Griezmann took a tumble when Croatia's Marcelo Brozovic appeared to clip his heels early in the first-half, and the free-kick he received resulted in a devastating own-goal for Croatia.

As the players one by one made their way out of the door, Pogba, the scorer of France's third goal and the main instigator of the joyous ruckus, apologized in jest to the press.

The club immediately congratulated all three team members upon the final whistle against Croatia, whilst also offering commiserations to Sime Vrsaljko, who was part of Croatia's spirited effort in defeat.

14 members of Didier Deschamps' squad are of African origin, and the coach has acknowledged that France will not be the only country celebrating should they beat Croatia in Sunday's World Cup final.

The full L'Equipe player ratings can be found below.

Despite of this rainy amusing moment, both Croatian and French presidents, Kolinda Kitarovic and Emmanuel Macron seemed to have a really good time supporting their own teams.

"We can't wait to lift the cup and bring it back to France".

"This is big. You can't explain the feeling for a small country".

"For a nation of four million people it's a miracle to come to the World Cup final", said Aleksander Ceferin, the head of European soccer's governing body UEFA.

"With France passing all these laws against Islamic practices, let's not forget it's these same Muslims players who helped win #WorldCup2018", one Twitter user wrote. "I'm very happy, it was a very hard match, Croatia played a great game", he told French TV channel TF1 just ahead of the trophy presentation.

"He adores football", Deschamps said of Mbappe during this World Cup.

Our taxi driver tells me, it's that past which has given this team a mental strength which surpasses other world teams and has seen them become the lowest ranked team to ever make a FIFA World Cup final.

"We talked about the youngster coming to the final and he has left his mark now", former England defener Martin Keown said while commentating on Match of the Day.
