Davido, Yemi Alade, others celebrate France World Cup win

France win World Cup

France took on Croatia in a much-anticipated World Cup final that saw a goal for each side in the first 30 minutes of play and an eventual 4-2 win for Les Bleus of France.

France broke the deadlock in the 18th minute with an inswinging free-kick from Antoine Griezmann took a slight deflection off Mario Mandžukić, to take it past Danijel Subašić.

Croatia’s Perisic equalised later but his heroics were undone ten minutes later when the ball struck his arm in the box and referee Nestor Pitana awarded a penalty after observing the incident for what felt like an age on the touchline monitor.

The Croat began the second half on the front foot, refusing to be disheartened by the controversial decision in the first half.

But once again they were sucker-punched by France on the counter, as Kylian Mbappe broke in behind, played the ball inside to Griezmann, who laid it off to Pogba, who slotted the ball past Subašić with his left foot at the second time of asking.

Croatia reduced the lead to two as Hugo Lloris clanger let Mandzukic atone for his own goal error.

Celebrities in Nigeria such as Davido, Yemi Alade and Juliet Ibrahim took to Instagram to celebrate France win as they were crowned world champions.

I have a dream that one day we shall do it for Africa
