    France beat Croatia 4-2 to win the football World Cup on Sunday, handing them their second victory in the competition after a successful campaign on home soil in 1998.

    Following are comments, quotes and reactions from the French coach, players and President Emmanuel Macron.

    COACH DIDIER DESCHAMPS

    "It is really beautiful. It is marvellous. We did not play a great match but we showed a strong mental quality. We also scored four goals. We merit it. I am very happy for this team. We are coming from very far and it has not always been easy, but thanks to hard work, they are here and are on top of the world for the next four years."

     

    ANTOINE GRIEZMANN

    "I don't know where I am, it is great... Very happy. It was a difficult match. Croatia play a great game. We started timidly. We knew it was a World Cup Final. We got into the game and on counter attacks, we made the difference. Very happy. We look forward to lifting the cup and taking it to France."

    PRESIDENT EMMANUEL MACRON

    In a tweet, the president said one word: "Merci"

     

    OLIVIER GIROUD

    "We have been celebrating with eveyone and my teammates in the locker room. The president (Macron) was here, likewise President Putin and the Croatian president, who congratulated us." Giroud said he plans to honour his pledge to cut his hair if France wins the world cup. "It is expected and I'll do it."

    KYLIAN MBAPPE

    "I'm very happy. I was able to show my ambitions and our collective ambition, which was to win. It was a long road, but it was worth while and we are world champions and very proud. It is the life that we wanted, we are proud to make French people happy. It was a superb goal, especially since it was a goal that gave us wings."

     

    PAUL POGBA

    "It is a dream since I was a young boy. I hope that we have made you proud."
