Trouble erupts in Paris following France's World Cup win

16 July, 2018, 13:59 | Author: Heidi Alvarez

And Charles de Gaulle - Etoile at the top of the Champs Elysées on line 2 has simply been named "On a 2 Etoiles" (We have 2 stars) in reference to the fact that France has now won the World Cup twice and their shirts can now bear two stars instead of just one.

As the World Cup trophy was brought on to the pitch for the victory ceremony, Macron briefly kissed it and beamed with joy.

The World Cup football final between France and Croatia, while taking place in Russian Federation, is expected to bring out masses of revellers - or people drowning their sorrows - on Sunday (Jul 15). "I was here the whole month and attended all France's games". "We vibrated with the horns in the street". We merit it. I am very happy for this team.

It was France's second-ever World Cup win, and came at a time when the people feel needy. Here, we are all united.

"We've had lots of problems in France these past years", he said, recalling deadly terror attacks.

Hundreds of police in riot gear were discretely lined up on side streets to monitor revelers. Typically, celebrations in France end up with some broken shop windows and other destruction, and Sunday was no exception.

The boom of fireworks and firecrackers filled the air and vehicle drivers honked their horns incessantly to celebrate France's second world title after their triumph on home soil in 1998. The Arc de Triomph was awash in the national colors, lit with the rooster, the faces of the winning team and the words "Proud to be Blue".

To guarantee the security of the parade on the Champs Elysees, the police announced a special deployment of 2,000 officers and armed security guards in the capital, and added that more details on the security protocols will be provided on Monday morning.

The celebrations were spread across the nation.
