The FIFA World Cup-winning French national team has staged a home-coming parade in the heart of city here, drawing cheers from a large number of supporters.

The French squad defeated Croatia 4-2 in Sunday’s final. It is the country’s second World Cup title and its first since 1998.

The team members rode open-top buses from the Arc de Triomphe down the Champs Elysees in Paris on Monday, with cheerful spectators trying to get a glimpse of them.


French media say about 300,000 people gathered to watch the parade.

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.
