Facts

The title is France’s second and the country’s first since it won on home soil in 1998, and it ended a thrilling run by Croatia over the past five weeks.

The Croats survived three consecutive extra-time games — and two penalty shootouts — in the knockout rounds to reach their first final, and they even had the better of the game on Sunday.

Coach Didier Deschamps became the third man to win the World Cup as a player and head coach.

The players honored him with pure joy and showering him with Champagne before he could answer a single question

His France team will not be remembered as the most elegant champions, or the most creative.

Instead, it will be remembered for what it was: a team of exceptional talent and ruthless efficiency, a group in which every player knew his job and performed it flawlessly.
