World Cup Final day

Today is the World Cup Final between France and Croatia and France is expected to win. After breakfast we walked around town that was filling with people wearing blue, white and red. The game started at 5pm and by 3pm restaurants with TVs were filling. By 4pm we found a table very close to a TV.

France won, 4-2, and the town erupted. The Frenchman Kylian Mbappe scores the final goal making him, at 19, the second-youngest player to score a goal in a World Cup Final — Pelé did it at 17 in 1958. Apparently we witnessed the next great soccer player. It was pretty great to be in France when they won only their second World Cup and for the first time in 20 years.
