Speaking to BeIN Sports, Benjamin Mendy, who played a bit-part role in the tournament, spoke to the squad’s strength in becoming World Cup champions.
“It is crazy. Earlier, a friend of mine sent me a photo of me wearing the French shirt when I was very young, with blue, red and white face paint on, it is crazy. Now we are living this. Many players dream of this, it is the most wonderful trophy. This trophy will forever be in the hearts of Les Bleus.”
“We have good players in our team but that is not all. We are a true family. There was an incredible feeling from the off. Thanks everyone. Allez les Bleus.”
