France have beaten Croatia by 4 goals to 2 in the Football World Cup final this morning in Moscow.

Good to see that more goals than normal were scored – it was the highest scoring final since 1966.

  1. The event seems to have been run very well without major problems so credit is due to Russia.

      I see on 1ewes the madness wasn’t over: celebrations in Paris turned into riots.
      All over now though. 😐

      • It took tear gas and water cannons.

        There is still a bit of unrest, or was a few minutes ago; an odd siren and car hooting.

        How different – how very different – to the home life of our own dear Queen.

        • Two people were killed in the riots !

            I looked closely at the 1ewes footage to see if any particular ethnic groups seemed to be doing the damage and throwing bottles at the riot police. But no – it was a mixture, some white some black. Same with those just celebrating and in good humour, doing no damage at all. Black and white, no issues. The 1ewes reporter remarked on how surreal it was – there was one group rioting, smashing windows, lighting fires, and police trying to control them, and just along the road other crowds just celebrating and cheering.

              I noticed that the crowd was all kinds & colours, which was not really a surprise.
