Mbappe donates £384,000 World Cup 2018 earnings to charity

Mrs Gomez told France Info radio: "I think Emmanuel Macron will try to get the following message across during upcoming worldwide meetings: that France is a young and dynamic country that strives to win, and which has become a serious player to be reckoned with on the global scene".

World Cup, World Cup and more World Cup - that's all France is talking about.

Memes began circulating on social media, and people began to pay attention to the team, dubbing them the "bread bag team".

They were given a raucous reception at Paris' Charles de Gaulle airport before their parade through the capital city. "All we want is a wave from the players".

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. Many hoped the 1998 win would ease racial tensions in France.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup was "a thrilling competition, bringing people together through the shared love of football and sports".

Their chances of continuing on a winning path are also increased by the fact coach Didier Deschamps, very popular with his players, is staying in the job for at least two more years.

But some were keen to put that phrase to one side, seeing in it a sense of separateness, even if it was meant positively.

Only 39 percent of those polled by Odoxa said Macron was a good president, a 2 percentage point decrease since Odoxa's last poll on June 26.

The Elysée meeting came a day after hundreds of thousands took to the streets in wild celebrations at France's 4-2 victory over Croatia in Moscow, in what the president called a "beautiful" show of unity.

The Victor Hugo stop, for example - named after the famous 19th-century writer - has become Victor Hugo Lloris, after the team's goalkeeper.

Notre-Dame des Champs has become "Notre Didier Deschamps", while Champs-Elysees- Clemenceau has been changed to "Deschamps Elysees-Clemenceau" - both stations pay tribute to the team's coach Didier Deschamps, who was also a midfielder in the 1998 side.

The after-effects of the win were frenetic revelry were still visible the next morning. There were many broken windows, an overturned vehicle and drawings on walls that included the phrase "Liberte, Egalite, Mbappe".

Bourassi runs a youth center in Bondy - Mbappe's home that was among those scarred by riots in 2005 that exposed the fissures of France that have yet to heal - and he knows the teenage star of the tournament.

Mbappe replied: "The king will always remain king".
