Yesterday, on July 16, the team France returned home from Russia after a grand victory in the World Cup: in the final, the French team defeated Croatia 4: 2 and regained the title of champion – 20 years after the first victory at the World Cup.
The victory of the national team became a real national holiday for France: on the night after the final, thousands of people came to the streets of Paris and other cities to celebrate a significant event with mass festivities.
The solemn reception in honor of the players was also organized by the President of France Emmanuel Macron, who, incidentally, followed the decisive game directly from the Luzhniki stands (the emotional behavior of the politician and the way he kissed the President of Croatia, Colinda Grabar-Kitarovich, we will not forget! ).
He invited the national team to his official residence in the Elysee Palace, which gathered fans of athletes. He met the players Macron and his wife: the first lady, as usual, chose a short dress of her favorite length “just above the knee” (similar orders she demonstrated at the recent NATO summit).
The team of the spouse was greeted with applause and friendly embraces. The president, the first lady, the players and coaches of the national team all together performed several hits – and We Are the Champions of Queen, and the song of Gloria Gaynor I Will Survive, and even the national anthem of France “Marseillaise”, after which they took a long photo with another the main “hero” of the day – the World Cup Cup.
