The French National Men’s Football team  defeated Croatia, 4-2 in the 2018 FIFA World Cup Final.

It was only France’s second time to hoist the World Cup trophy, twenty years after their first World Cup championship.
And as many of you may already know, the Philippines was also represented in the World Cup, via Filipino-French goalkeeper Alphonse Areola.
The 25-year old Areola was born to Filipino parents working in France, and has been part of France’s youth teams since 2008.
Areola, who plays for club team Paris Saint-Germain, received his first senior call up back in 2015.
