Former Super Eagles head coach, Sunday Oliseh, has congratulated France after Les Bleus emerged champions of the 2018 FIFA 2018 World Cup in Russia, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
Didier Deschamps’ men beat Croatia 4-2 in the final match on Sunday at the Luzhniki Stadium Moscow.
It was France’s second World Cup title following their successful campaign on home soil in 1998.
A Mario Mandzukic’s own goal and three other strikes by Antoine Griezmann, Paul Pogba and Kylian Mbappe gave France victory in the game.
Oliseh also spared a word for Croatia who defied the odds to make it to the final.
“Finally, Africa wins it’s 1st world Cup but in french colours lol. Congratulations France, well deserved. Love the Croatian spirit though & their great team spirit,” 0liseh wrote on his Twitter handle Sunday night.
