This is the moment World Cup victor France, led by goalscorer Paul Pogba, gatecrashed the post-match press conference of manager Didier Deschamps to dance on tables and spray gathered journalists with water.

Tens of thousands of people are expected to attend the celebrations at the central square in the capital Zagreb after the players fly in from Russian Federation.

More than 100,000 red-and-white-painted Croatian fans were expected to welcome the squad home later on Monday in the capital Zagreb.

20 years after they first lifted the World Cup trophy, France re-lived the moments as Didier Deschamps and his charges won the World Cup after a 4-2 win over Croatia in the final on Sunday at Moscow's Luzhniki stadium.

Dalic has said that he will not be placing too much pressure on Croatia heading into the final and that he will be telling the players to "have fun" before they head out onto the pitch.

Antoine Griezmann downplayed his chances of winning the Ballon d'Or after scoring four goals for France in the World Cup and finishing second in the race for the Golden Boot. "I've got chills. I'm going to cry", she said.

Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Peter Strzok denies bias at hearing full of fireworks
Strzok, a seasoned counterintelligence agent, helped lead both investigations but has since been reassigned to human resources. The comments sparked immediate objections from Democrats , who called them outrageous, and Strzok was livid.


"In our team there are many players who come from different horizons, but we have the same state of mind". "I congratulate France on their title". "There were imperfections even today but we had psychological qualities which were decisive". We are proud to be French, to be Blues.

"I think it's great to have a setting like this, to be able to experience the game on the big screen", she said.

As the final whistle blew, with France holding onto its lead despite a giveaway goal from the French goal keeper, French fans leapt to their feet, embraced each other and chanted "Allez les bleus".

And a man in his thirties died after crashing his auto into a tree while celebrating shortly after the game in the small town of Saint-Felix in northern France.

Raphaël Varane became the only player to have won the World Cup and the UEFA Champions League in the current season, having won the latter with Real Madrid of Spain earlier in the year.
