France had the average age of 26 years and 10 days at the start of the World Cup while Pele’s champion side was aged 25 years and 5 days at start of the tournament in 1970.Griezmann was awarded the player of the match award for his sublime display in the match.

A moment they would never forget!France manager Didier Deschamps became just the third person to win the World Cup as a player and as a coach. Deschamps was captain of the France squad that won the World Cup on home soil in 1998.With France’s 4-2 win over Croatia in the final in Moscow, he joins Franz Beckenbauer (Germany) and Mario Zagallo (Brazil) in an elite trio that has won the title on the field and from the bench.Pogba also trolled England after the win, something that may not go down well with English fans.With the trophy in hand, dancing in high spirits, he blurted out “It’s coming home!”, and then immediately apologised for it.’It’s coming home’ refers to the FIFA-endorsed idea that the sport in its current avatar started in England, and if the three Lions managed to win the title — the trophy and symbolically football itself would have returned home. The song though became synonymous with the English football team, dooming them with hope at every edition since 1990 when ‘The Lightning Seeds’ (a British Pop band) first composed it.Paul Pogba dey troll England: “Its coming home.” #mufc United in Pidgin (@ManUtdInPidgin) July 16, 2018Pogba, who starred in an epic final on Sunday, repeatedly kept saying ‘It’s coming home’ in an obvious dig at England football. At least thrice, he could be heard saying in the viral video, “It’s coming home, oh sorry, sorry.”last_img
