    Still not convinced France are the best in the world but, ho-hum, the small matter of the trophy and the history books says otherwise.

    Badgers Mr Big Shrimp!

    I doubt for a second he was in on the statement. Nor do I think he has any interest in their political stance. He just thought WTF at the time. Still went back to his agent and said 'what am I worth to money men?'.

    Contrast with Lovren, who flung a male protester to the floor

    If that's true, he should have got sent off for that. That's what the rules say.

    First challenge he'd made since their Russia game that didn't warrant a yellow card

    I'm just going by YouTube clips where a player has defended himself - or another player - from an attack from someone invading the pitch, and they've been sent off. Unless there's been a rule change in the intervening years, the rule still applies.

    Been reported lots of Looting in France and the Riot police are out in force.
    Mainly in Paris.
    I thought it was a great game and Croatia could count themselves a little unlucky.
    Well done Russia for a wonderful Tournament .
    Hope it is held there again someday.

    World Cup final - Riots erupt in Paris after French victory celebrations ...

    Agree. If anything, it puts to bed this ridiculous assertion that there was any easy side of the draw. Croatia were taken to penalties by Russia and Denmark yet France got very lucky today. I thought Croatia were the better team. If the French hadn't been given the two controversial decisions in the first half I doubt they'd have get in the game.

    Well done France. Croatia played well. Unlucky with the pen. I won to hundred quid on getting the correct score though. Couple of quid at 100 to 1.:)

    and free kick ;)

    *(I thought it was a penalty tbf - ref had to give it according to the rules - deffo hand to ball. It's just not natural to be jumping 3 foot off the ground and have your hands by your waist.

    1927 Funnier than he thinks he is.

    Not a penalty in a million years in my book.

    But, iirc, the attacker touched it as it passed him, so his movement towards the ball would have been a split second after the ball diverted from the attacker. In other words, there was no way it could have been deliberate.

    France were magnificent in the 2nd half. But, as in the usual thought experiment, if they'd gone in 0 - 1 at half time, it's anyone's guess whether they'd have been able to do all that against a defensive Croatia. Personally, I still thought Croatia were robbed.
