Deschamps laughs off idea of immobile Modric

Deschamps laughs off idea of immobile Modric

Even non-football fans are convinced.

Atletico Madrid ace Antoine Griezmann admits he considered a Panenka for his World Cup final penalty in France's win over Croatia. In all, 11 players have achieved the feat, with seven Bayern Munich players winning the European Cup and the World Cup with the Germany team in 1974, led by Franz Beckenbauer.

However, the Paris Saint-Germain forward showed his respect to one of the greatest goal-scorers of all time as he responded: "The king will always remain king". In scoring twice against Argentina in the last 16, Mbappe became the first teenager since Pele to score multiple goals in a World Cup game.

"But our coach and young players did it!" The Manchester City right-back uploaded a video of himself and teammate Paul Pogba dabbing with France's President Emmanuel Macron.

Everyone was talking about Kylian Mbappe when he was on the pitch - his speed that was too quick for the cameras and then there was that genius pass against Belgium.

Trump and Putin will meet on Monday in Helsinki for their first stand-alone meeting since Trump took office in January 2017. They also expect Trump to bring up Russia's incursion into Ukraine and the allegations of Russian meddling in the election.

"I hope my old club are chasing him. But what the players did today is just as handsome, is just as strong". It was also reported that he received a £265,000 ($351,000) bonus if France won the tournament (which we all know they did).

This World Cup produced 169 goals, making it the third most prolific World Cup of all time.

Kylian Mbappe transfer odds: Who could sign World Cup superstar? I wanted to take the decision [to turn down Barcelona] before the World Cup. "As I said the Ballon d'Or [voting] is not in my hands".

Others tweeted phrases including "Immigration makes France stronger", and "Immigrants get the job done".

"I am sure we will see an interesting, intense, close match which millions of spectators across the world will enjoy", he said.
