Victorious France team land back in Paris and head for Champs-Elysées

D Trevor Noah

The World Cup final between France and Croatia is one of them. And although they lost the game, they won hearts across the globe with their crackling football that sent biggies like England out of the reckoning.

Even an event as entertaining as the World Cup final couldn't get Putin to crack a smile, it seems.

Hundreds of thousands of supporters came out to Paris' Champs Elysees on Monday to welcome home their victorious national football team one day after they won the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

The glory of a World Cup triumph - Les Bleus' second and first for two decades - soon banished memories of that howler, however, with Lloris hoisting aloft the Jules Rimet Trophy.

Jo Swinson says Tories broke Brexit vote agreement
However, party whips told Mr Lewis to take part regardless, and his vote helped Theresa May narrowly avoid a damaging defeat. There are now no formal maternity or paternity arrangements in Parliament, with informal leave arranged at party level.

After the open top bus tour the players were set to join President Emmanuel Macron at the Elysées Palace for a garden party along with thousands of young guests, many of them member of youth football clubs around Paris.

Antoine Griezmann was also told to drop deeper when Croatia attacked, instead of staying close to the other forwards, to act as an outlet when France recovered the ball.

For starters, the big number: Twitter had 115 billion impressions (i.e. views of tweets) during the World Cup. And even though many are in a rush to announce the Ballon d'Or victor, how each of these players do in Sunday's final will be a factor.
