France's Kylian Mbappe 'Will Donate World Cup Earnings To Charity'

France defeated Croatia 4-2 in the final yesterday, in a gripping encounter at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium. But when one did, bang - Kylian Mbappé, a player hailed as the new Pelé, the former three-time World Cup victor with Brazil, had arrived.

Mbappe netted in France's World Cup final win over Croatia on Sunday, becoming the second youngest player, after Pele, to net in the showpiece match.

The fans celebrate again when France takes the lead against Croatia, thanks to a controversial penalty goal by Antoine Griezmann.

"France was not my team but I am so pleased for them today", said Sarah, a 24-year-old from Birmingham in England who is studying medicine in Paris.

But now the World Cup is well and truly over it seems everyone is continuing to talk about him off the pitch - he really is the gift that keeps on giving.

Back in the sporting world, German NBA superstar Dirk Nowitzki was probably the only German fan to have fun whilst watching the World Cup.

Donald Trump calls European Union a 'foe'
Trump also offered little indication he had confidence in Monday's Helsinki meeting producing any groundbreaking outcomes. My father was Germany ", Trump said. "Now, you wouldn't think of the European Union, but they're a foe".

The Russian foreign ministry congratulated France for its victory in an official tweet.

Varane came to the World Cup having just won his fourth Champions League medal with Real Madrid. Of them, only Forlan's team (Uruguay) failed to finish in second place. "We are a bit sad but we must also be proud of what we've done".

"With France passing all these laws against Islamic practices, let's not forget it's these same Muslims players who helped win #WorldCup2018", one Twitter user wrote.

"Something like this was unthinkable then and all I wanted was to do a good job".

Mandzukic managed to grab a regulation goal of his own after he capitalised on an unbelievable howler from French keeper Huge Lloris to give Croatia a sniff of a miracle comeback late in the game.
