France coach hails team after World Cup win

France coach Didier Deschamps praised France's mental strength after they won the World Cup with a 4-2 victory over Croatia on Sunday.
Les Bleus claimed the trophy for a second time after seeing off a strong challenge from Croatia in Moscow.

The 1998 champions played most of the match on the back foot, but scored twice in each half to overcome Croatia. As Deschamps prepared to begin his post-match media conference he was mobbed by France players chanting his name and soaking him with whatever drink came to hand.

He said after the match "They are a little crazy, they have always been a little mad,  they are young and they are happy. It's a young team, who are on the top of the world. Some are champions at the age of 19. We did not play a huge game but we showed mental quality. And we scored four goals anyway. They deserved to win. The group worked so hard and we had some tough moments along the way. It hurt so much to lose the Euros two years ago, but it made us learn too. The win is not about me, it's the players who won the game. For 55 days, we have done a lot of work. It is the supreme coronation. We are proud to be French. The victory in the match belongs to them."
