FRANCE – In 1998 Israel won the Eurovision Song Contest followed by the French triumph in World Cup. History repeats itself as in 2018 exactly 20 years after the previous factoid, Israel wins again the Eurovision Song Contest and France repeats the World Cup triumph. It was natural to see the Instagram celebrations by various French Eurostars.
France is World Cup champion for a second time in its history after a 4-2 win over Croatia — but with two goals scored in very contentious fashion in a two-goal win, could Croatia feel rightly aggrieved by the result?
Croatia had the chance to secure a fairytale win over mighty France, and flew out the traps early doors to pin Les Bleus back for the opening 15 minutes.
