France’s forward Antoine Griezmann celebrates his team’s third goal during the Russia 2018 World Cup final football match between France and Croatia at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on July 15, 2018.

French goalscorer Antoine Griezmann said he was struggling for his bearings because he was so overjoyed after helping his country win their second World Cup by beating Croatia 4-2 on Sunday.
“I don’t know where I am… I’m very happy, it was a very difficult match, Croatia played a great game,” he told French TV channel TF1 just ahead of the trophy presentation.
“We can’t wait to lift the Cup and bring it back to France.”
The Atletico Madrid forward gave France a crucial 2-1 lead before half-time, netting a controversial penalty which was awarded for a Ivan Perisic handball after a video assistant review, the first-ever in a World Cup final.
“I thought about doing a ‘Panenka’ like Zidane (in the 2006 final), but in the end I opened up my foot,” Griezmann said, before adding he would “sleep” with the World Cup tonight.
The 27-year-old ended the tournament with four goals as France won the title for the first time on foreign soil after their victory as hosts in 1998.
