This World Cup win is the second one for France, who were champions once before, twenty years ago in 1998.

Winning the soccer World Cup has turned the French, long-time pessimists, into optimists, but has not boosted President Emmanuel Macron's popularity, a survey showed on Tuesday.

Numerous invited clubs are based in the poor neighborhoods French that produced the players who made up France's youthful, diverse World Cup team, including 19-year-old breakout star Kylian Mbappe.

"This is how Croatia is loved", read one banner. "We are happy", he said.

Lloris spared their blushes to a degree by needlessly gifting Mandzukic - and Croatia - a lifeline, but France saw the game out with a maturity beyond their years, one forged from harsh lessons of the past.

The France team set off from their Istra base in Russian Federation on Monday morning and were greeted by swathes of fans at Paris' Charles de Gaulle airport upon landing - coach Didier Deschamps and bleary-eyed captain Hugo Lloris appearing first from the aircraft with the famous trophy.

"I closed my office to welcome our heroes".

"I have to congratulate my players".

"We had so much fun last night, the city was full of joy, so much celebration", a woman dressed in red, white and blue who had made her way out to Charles de Gaulle airport told BFM TV.




If you want a real team to savour, here's what the JOE team of the tournament looked like.

In fairness, whoever is behind it did a brilliant job of pulling the wool over people's eyes, until they threw it all away by naming a certain someone in midfield.

Several Paris Metro stations are temporarily adjusting their names to honor France's World Cup champions.

The team is scheduled to arrive back in France at around 1430 GMT, before a parade down the Champs Elysees and a formal victory reception with Macron at the Elysee Palace.

If Belgium had been able to field the suspended Meunier for their semi-final against France, the outcome might have been different, as France's players admitted themselves.

France were efficient, calculating, clever and in command in most of their matches without showing a huge amount of entertaining flair. Maybe it won't hit home immediately but, in the future, our children are going to be proud of what we have done.

"It represents enormous things", said Goffrey Hamsik, dressed in a hat resembling a rooster - the French national symbol - and a shirt with Mbappe's No. 10 number.

The breathless victory under stormy skies meant his side - a balance of youthful vitality and big-tournament experience - have buried the pain of their defeat in the Euro 2016 final in Paris.
