Hats off to President of #Croatia Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic. She attended each #Croatia match at the World Cup, travelled in economy class & sat with the fans in the stadium. She refused to take any pay for her days not at work.— Ronnie 🔥 (@AleeyKhan17) July 16, 2018

I want someone to hug me the way Croatia’s president hugs everyone.😂 pic.twitter.com/9V4B6LQFta— Zuhayr (@zuhayrstark) July 15, 2018

How many times has France won the world cup? When was the last time France won a World Cup?
This is France's second win. The team won the World Cup 20 years ago in 1998.
