French President Macron has plenty of fun at World Cup final

World Cup 2018: Luka Modric Wins Golden Ball

World Cup 2018: Luka Modric Wins Golden Ball

The Paris Saint-Germain forward was a key member of the French side which won the 2018 World Cup, beating Croatia 4-2 in the final.

But after a four-hour ride the bus stopped around a kilometre from the central square as it could not get through the crowds.

In the clip, Vukojevic, a former Croatian worldwide, was seen alongside defender Domagoj Vida after the team had secured a dramatic 4-3 penalty shootout win over Russian Federation in Sochi.

More than 80% of the stories were positive, Mediatoolkit said, for a woman who travelled to Russian Federation at her own expense in economy class and often watched from the non-VIP stands - missing only the semi-final against England because it clashed with the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit.

Some also saw a display of a great sporting spirit as she hugged players from both teams: "Loved your gesture and sporting spirit during World Cup final game".

"This is how Croatia is loved", read one banner.

No Justine, we don't need a second referendum
It comes after former education secretary Justine Greening , a long-time Remainer, joined in the calls for another referendum. The skirmishes are expected to continue Tuesday when a trade bill is debated. "The reality is parliament is now stalemated".

Tens of thousands of Croatians gave a heroes' welcome to their team in Zagreb on Monday after the squad returned from Russian Federation following their World Cup final defeat.

"They restored pride, pulled it out of the pessimism" reigning in the country whose economy remains among the weakest in the European Union.

Macron appeared to be a good sport too, congratulating President of Croatia Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic after the game. "This will be a multiple entry visa-free regime", Putin told reporters following the awards ceremony of the World Cup tournament that just concluded.

"I'm so proud not only of our football team, I'm so proud of our nation".

State TV had urged citizens to come out and enjoy "the historic moment" on the players' return.
