Re: World Cup

@Sanna  Didn't they just win the world cup in 1982?   and perhaps one other time after that also?

@trenet I think you are correct.  I did remember the most wonderful game played between France and Germany in 1982 which France won, but it was a semi final game.    I haven't seen a game like that again.

Re: World Cup

I think this year cup is the most unexpected and unusual ever. Who thought Russia would go this far? Or Croatians? Or Germany!!! would be beaten by South Korea!!,

That Spain and Brazilwould show nothing interesting....

Sport is an unpredictable thing....

Re: World Cup

Just watched video - The Castmembers from Epcot-France celebrated the French victory.

 They were playing LaMarseillaise, singing and waving the French flag.

Re: World Cup

La France est folle, i.e., France is crazy. I’ve been watching French TV and they are going nuts over winning the World Cup. It just so happens that my husband and I were in France in 1998, the last and only other time France won the World Cup. We were in Annecy, near the Alps. Every restaurant and bar had TV coverage and the whole town stopped. It was fascinating to witness the lunacy.
