French World Cup victors show triumph of diversity, says Obama

French World Cup victors show triumph of diversity, says Obama

According to Sports Illustrated, 19-year-old soccer phenom Kylian Mbappe earned about $22,500 for each of France's seven World Cup matches, plus a bonus of around $350,000 after Les Bleus won the title Sunday with a 4-2 victory over Croatia. The Champs-Elysees Clemenceau has become the Deschamps-Elysees Clemenceau to honor coach Didier Deschamps.

Despite a failure to lift the World Cup a second time, Henry, Trezeguet and Deschamps were part of the side that backed up their success by winning Euro 2000.

The two stars refers to the badge on the team shirt marking two World Cup victories, and a long queue formed outside a sports shop in central Paris on Monday as supporters tried to buy the updated national jersey.

"You'll automatically learn how to lead a team", Beckenbauer said.

No date has yet been set for the ceremony to hand over France's highest award for "exceptional service" to the nation, which follows the team's 4-2 win over Croatia in Russian Federation on Sunday.

Mbappe is only the third teen to even play in the World Cup - after Pele and Italian legend Guiseppe Bergomi in 1982.

KYLIAN Mbappe will donate his entire earnings of $AUD681,000 from playing in the World Cup to charity.

"We are linked for life now with this Cup", defender Raphael Varane told BFM-TV on today before departing from Moscow, evoking the theme of unity that French partiers have consistently evoked.

Nonetheless, the victory is good news for the French president, Sliman said, boosting morale ahead of belt-tightening measures expected in September's budget bill.

He will welcome them at the presidential palace in Paris on Monday when the victorious players return home and the former investment banker will be hoping some of the feelgood factor rubs off on him.

But eventually the French players - who had remained silent, perhaps bemused by the row, felt compelled to speak out.

Penalty shoot-out victories over Denmark and Russian Federation followed in the last 16 and quarterfinals, respectively, before a 2-1 win against England in extra-time saw it reach its first ever World Cup final. Broken shop windows and signs of looting lined a section of the Champs-Elysees.
