France has just revived its World Cup triumph from 20 years ago as they beat team Croatia, World Cup beginners, in a dynamic final game. Football enthusiasts from both camps have already indulged in large-scale celebrations over the win itself and the finale of the breathtaking Russia-hosted tournament.

Many engaged in general contemplations over today’s fierce bout and fans’ sentiments throughout the play, particularly so after the French vigorously stepped up efforts and scored their fourth and goal in the second half:

“The logo of Croatia in the second half. It's a pity but they deserve respect — they lasted long after these three extra times.”

This one has already emerged on social networks, though, in the course of the champiohsip:

One user reminded mid-way through the game that the Croatians should have remembered that they were not playing against England in the final, recollecting the latter's poor performance on Saturday.

In another hilarious meme, a user laughs off the world’s top-paid football stars, who have since long quit the World Cup race, while another enthusiastically remarked how rich in successful scores this game was:

Some focused on those initial ephemeral expectations in the air:


France’s forward Antoine Griezmann and center-back player Rapahel Varane naturally didn’t lack attention:

Some visually reflected their assumptions over…. the referee “siding” with the French:

Zlatko Dalić’s non-verbal disappointment is also played on in memes:

Kylian Mbappe’s young genius is again on everybody’s lips, after the 19 year-old gracefully hit the bottom corner of the goal.

The ethnicity of some of the outstanding French players has also been picked up on:

Croatia’s goalkeeper Danijel Subašić is also a central subject in a number of posts, including memes:

One even suggested that he be transferred to Liverpool instead, referring England’s poor efforts on Saturday.
