"It's a young team, who are on the top of the world".
"Technical qualities such as skill, style and charisma are taken into account, but so are other important factors such as a sense of fair play and a genuine impression that the player is playing for the love of the game", according to Federation Internationale de Football Association.
It really didn't matter in the end that the Chelsea forward wasn't able to find the goal as France won the World Cup anyway. Deschamps will join them if his team win Sunday's final against Croatia in Moscow. "It hurt so much to lose the European Championship two years ago, but it made us learn too".
"France are just an anti-football team" That was what Belgian goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois said about France after they defeated Belgium in the World Cup Semi-Final. Talent alone is not sufficient. "One thing that makes me happy is that all my players tell me whether they are not 100 per cent", he said.
The successful kick gave France the lead at 2-1, and Griezmann immediately ran toward the side of the field, cheered on by his teammates.
While waiting for the presentation Griezmann burst into tears, seemingly as the enormity of his team's achievement swept over him, and while a rainstorm soaked the Luzhniki arena, the player embraced French president Emmanuel Macron who kissed his forehead and clasped his shoulders.
"Those 23 players will now be linked forever whatever happens".
A World Cup final to decide the Ballon d'Or?
It's official: Germany are no longer world champions.
Deschamps, who joins the elite company of Franz Beckenbauer and Mario Zagallo as those to have won the World Cup on the pitch and from the dugout, praised the tournament for its unpredictability - especially regarding the strong performances of so-called smaller nations.
While Spain had a disappointing World Cup, exiting the tournament in the last 16 against hosts Russian Federation, they can take some satisfaction from their exemplary behaviour on the pitch, where they picked up just two yellow cards in their four matches and committed a mere 34 fouls. We have a lot of respect for them. It is the supreme coronation. We are proud to be French, to be Bleus.
They will also have to dig deep to overcome the certain fatigue that has comes with having been forced into extra time in their last three matches, winning two on post-match penalties.
The coach also said France managed to overcome mistakes and imperfections with sheer mental strength to lift the trophy for the second time. Their blend of experienced campaigners like Griezmann and Paul Pogba, and young stars like Kylian Mbappe and Benjamin Pavard, ensures they are the bookmakers´ favourites. The result [of the match] will show if we did everything right....
Midfielder Blaise Matuidi said the defeat in the Euro 2016 final - when France seemed to freeze in front of their own fans at the Stade de France in Paris and Portugal nicked a 1-0 win - would be in numerous players´ minds when they walk out at Moscow´s Luzhniki Stadium on Sunday. Today, everyone is partying, but becoming world champion in the most popular sport in the world is not easy. "The Euro final was different".
