@Ricworld well said its really pathetic to claim French players as our own now cause they won the world cup, most of those "African" players have never even sat foot in Africa. If they were indeed African they'll be representing their respective African countries...even after the match they were running around with the French flags,Yes we can celebrate black players winning the world cup but to say Africa has won the world cup that's just rubbish, Africa has failed dismally at this world cup due to their corruption and lack of hard work, which is a story for another day

Applause to Croatian coach for being in the final after joining the national team for only nine months ago. Others need years to archive wat he did.

Mandzukic scored an own goal in 17 minutes n his wearing jersey number 17 n by the way the was no way Croatia could have beaten France... France has a lot of talented players n play as a team n they possess nice skills, bravo Les Blues
