FRANCE are the 2018 World Cup champions after blitzing Croatia in a 4-2 win in Sunday’s final.
Paul Pogba, Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe scored – along with a Mario Mandzukic own goal – in the crushing win in Moscow.
Leading striker Olivier Giroud meanwhile failed to find the back of the net… or even register a single shot on target.
In fact, Chelsea’s former Arsenal forward took 13 shots during this summer’s World Cup and failed to trouble the goalkeeper with any of them.
All-in-all, Giroud played each of France’s seven matches, totalling 564 minutes of action.
Yet he still failed to register a single shot on target.
While he was not troubling the scoring charts, Giroud was a key man for France this summer thanks to his link-up play with Griezmann and Mbappe.
The pair scored four goals apiece in Russia – with Mbappe even being crowned Young Player of the Tournament.
Meanwhile, jubilant France fans partied in the streets as they celebrated their amazing World Cup triumph.
Thousands had gathered at the Eiffel Tower and Champ De Mars to watch their nation in action on the big screen – and they partied long after the final whistle after bagging World Cup title No2.
