Congratulations to the Les Bleus team on winning the Coupe du Monde on July 15, 2018
The French team known as Les Bleus won the Coupe du Monde against Croatia on June 15,2018 in Russia with a score of 4-2.
My friend Rachelle invited me to see the game with some friends from the church Eglise St. Lazare in Paris. They reserved a room in a restaurant where we watched the game on a large screen TV. It was exciting to see both teams rival each other.
The match was well played and we cheered for the French team Les Bleus. We saw the presentation of the medals an saw Putin and Macron with the President of Croatia present the awards during the rain.
Seeing people decorated in red, white and blue was fantastic. It was uplifting to celebrate this victory.
The enthusiasm of the crowds walking and driving down the streets for the happy event provided a change from constantly hearing about the tragedies of war.
