France Celebrates Soccer World Cup Triumph

French celebrate Bastille Day

Members of the Republican Guard ride horses during the traditional Bastille Day military parade on the Champs-Elysees Avenue in Paris, France, July 14, 2018.

And in a warm-up for Bastille Day, which celebrates the French Revolution, Friday-night parties are organised by the firefighters and paramedics of the "Sapeurs-Pompiers" across France.

France celebrates a victory in the 2018 World Cup, beating Croatia.

Extra security is also in place for the Tour de France, which passes Saturday through Normandy, and for Sunday, when France will be watching its national soccer team face Croatia in the World Cup final.

France fans are seen during clashes on the Champs-Elysees avenue after France win the World Cup final.

A mayor in Paris, Jeanne d'Hauteserre, was disappointed, saying, "The party is ruined because of a handful of thugs". It's the pride of the nation.

Trumps calls the European Union a foe of the United States
During his trip, Trump made several disparaging comments about North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies like Germany and the UK. Donald Tusk , president of the European Council , replied on Twitter using one of Trump's favorite stock phrases.

France will close the Eiffel Tower and mobilise 110,000 security staff as the weekend World Cup football final and Bastille Day festivities are expected to send hundreds of thousands of people into the streets, from Paris to the smallest of villages.

"We've had lots of problems in France these past years", he said, recalling a string of terror attacks. "It unites everyone. It federates", Frederique Pourquet said as she and her friend left the Champs-Elysees. "We should be proud to be French", Griezmann said.

Bourassi runs a youth center in Bondy - Mbappe's home that was among those scarred by riots in 2005 that exposed the fissures of France that have yet to heal - and he says he knows the teenage star of the tournament.

"All this euphoria and effervescence, it's positive but it's emotional and ephemeral", he said ahead of France's win.

But, he added, it must be built on. The World Cup victory has also fueled French patriotism, with people waving flags and singing "La Marseillaise". Firecrackers went off as the state TV proclaimed that "we are still not aware of what we have done".

Fans in the capital, many wearing the team's red-and-white checked shirts or wrapped in national flags, crammed into squares and streets and were full of hope and cheers until the last moment.
