Among the national team members smiling and waving from the bus top were 19-year-old Kylian Mbappe, who won the World Cup Young Player award, and Paul Pogba, who netted the team’s third goal in the final.

A woman who was taking video of the parade with her smartphone said she is proud of France for winning the World Cup title. She said she was happy to be there watching the parade.

A man said that he felt a strong link with the players when he saw them in the flesh.

He said that he will never forget his country’s victory in the World Cup.
