Didier Deschamps: France still not over loss in Euro 2016 final

Didier Deschamps: France still not over loss in Euro 2016 final

Police warned England soccer fans on Monday not to repeat the "shocking behaviour" that followed Saturday's World Cup quarter-final win over Sweden.

The final five members of a young football team were rescued from a flooded Thai cave on Tuesday after spending 18 harrowing days trapped deep inside, completing an astonishing against-the-odds rescue mission that captivated the world.

Olivier Giroud, who is still without a goal in Russian Federation, revelled in his childhood dream of reaching a World Cup final and hopes to emulate 1998 hero Zinedine Zidane.

But FIFA said it had been informed "that due to medical reasons, the boys will not be in a position to travel to Moscow". The players today are going to be even stronger in two years' time and in four years' time, but today they are already competitive. "Our thoughts are with his family", Federation Internationale de Football Association said. We will give this final match everything.

"We need to understand it's an important game, but I accept it's very hard after a game with the emotions we had today".

They are making us all proud. "I hope that, come Sunday, we will all be happy".


"We want people to celebrate.but not at the expense of law-abiding fans and emergency services' resources", he said.

France's players danced on the field after the final whistle and their fans sang in the stands long past the end of the match, surrounded by yellow-clad security.

Mr Colgan, 56, who owns the Garden Brewery in Zagreb, said the World Cup atmosphere had been "electric".

In-fact, 72% of England's goals have come from set-pieces.

Deschamps now has the chance to become the third person to win the World Cup as a player and a coach, after German great Franz Beckenbauer and Brazil's Mario Zagallo.

"And in my role, I've got the eyes into Euro 2020 so it's not the right moment to make an assessment just yet".
