Croatia’s president is against attempts to isolate Russian Federation

Mbappe can do no wrong at the moment

Here's the president flailing about in the official leader box at Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, sitting alongside his wife Brigitte Macron, FIFA President Gianni Infantino, President of French Football Federation Noel Le Graet, and Russian president Vladimir Putin.

"Mr President, allow me to congratulate you and the Russian nation on a fantastic World Cup, which we hope to host just as successfully". But for the moment, over to France for the celebrations.

Some 15 of the 23 members of France's World Cup team are of African descent, with families hailing from places like the Democratic Republic of the Congo (formerly Zaire), Cameroon, Morocco, Angola, and Algeria.

Olivier Giroud is a World Cup victor after France's 4-2 victory over Croatia at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.

She then stood on the podium with Russian President Vladimir Putin and President Macron as medals were awarded to the players, making sure to hug each player from both teams.

Croatia fans in Bergen County were proud of the team despite the defeat, celebrating their hard work and the achievement of Croatia becoming the second smallest country to make it this far in the World Cup. "In this type of competition, it's not the most handsome that wins, but the one who believe the most", he said.

For Macron, who became president past year at the age of 39, leading his political movement to victory against the odds, the success is also likely to have positive repercussions after a slump in the polls amid a host of economic reforms.

By the end of the day, it was the Croatian president who had emerged as her country's star of the tournament.

Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh had earlier reported that Federation Internationale de Football Association had given the hosting rights of the 2026 World Cup to the United States, Mexico and Canada.

Every World Cup has its winners and losers: no matter who finally lifts the trophy, with some footballers' performances seeing their stock rise dramatically and earning them a big-money move over the summer.
