French President Emmanuel Macron has declared that France’s victorious World Cup team will receive the country’s highest accolade, the Légion
d’Honneur following their triumph at the FIFA World Cup Tournament concluded in Russia last Sunday.
France defeated Croatia 4-2 in the football final in Moscow on Sunday as the les blues recorded her second World Cup win in 20 years.
The players will be honoured with a parade on the capital’s main artery along with a presidential reception.
The World Cup winners, who landed in Paris yesterday, took an open-top bus along the avenue just as crowds of fans lined the Champs-Elysées in central Paris to give the team a heroes’ welcome.
