  • France World Cup-winning squad to get National Honour

On Sunday, French football (soccer) fans rejoiced as the country's national team captured its first World Cup since 1998 by defeating Croatia by a final score of 4-2.

Mr Macron was due to call on the bosses to take "immediate, visible commitments" to create jobs and apprenticeships in such areas, said his aides.

While many African players engage their football federations in endless squabble over bonuses, it is Mbappe's that he should not be paid to wear the French national jersey.

While they may have taken second place on the home consoles, it is here that Brazil shined the brightest with 10 million World Cup wins.

Macron had already celebrated with the team on Sunday after attending the final in Moscow, to project a more modern image as a president in touch with the masses.

The French striker turned heads during the 2018 FIFA World Cup, netting four goals and getting named the best young player of the tournament.

The Israelis retaliated with live fire, killing a Palestinian teen and injuring 220 others throughout the day, Wafa reported. Israel has carried out its biggest attack against Hamas militant targets in the Palestinian enclave since the war in 2014.

A 4-2 win over Croatia in Moscow on Sunday secured France their second World Cup triumph, sparking non-stop celebrations back home.

Newspapers and TV stations hailed France's World Cup victory on Monday, while cleanup crews worked against the clock to tidy up after a insane night's partying in Paris ahead of a victory parade down the Champs Elysees.

The Paris metro has temporarily renamed six stations in honour of France's World Cup victors, as the capital prepares to salute their return.

After the parade, a lavish reception has been planned for the world champions at the presidential palace. For example, the Victor Hugo station has become Victor Hugo Lloris and the Champs-Elysees Clemenceau stop has been dubbed he Deschamps-Elysees Clemenceau after coach Didier Deschamps.

"Just like 20 years ago there were also 19-year-old players like David Trezeguet and Thierry Henry".

President Emmanuel Macron exulted on the field and in the locker room with the players, and is hoping their victory gives him a boost, too.
