The Didier Deschamps managed side secured an exhilarating 4-2 victory over Croatia, prompting an outpouring of joy across France. While, in Russian Federation, the 40-year-old president was spotted jumping for joy and pumping his first with each goal.

A jubilant looking President Macron pumps the air as France scores again.

Many even skipped work to celebrate the team reaching their first ever World Cup final.

But this time they'll have home field advantage for their talented squad that includes stars like forward Eugénie Le Sommer and defender and captain Wendie Renard (above).Jean Catuffe/Getty ImagesGERMANYThe perennial soccer power won gold at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janiero, a tournament that saw the US exit in a shocking quarterfinal loss. The FIFA president expressed his happiness with the ceremony saying "it's so important that we can be here today in the iconic place of the Kremlin to pass the World Cup hosting rights from the organiser of the 2018 World Cup to the organiser of the 2022 World Cup".

One picture of Macron in particular is making the rounds online.

"The team selection reflected France's belief in the younger generation and this title win has also brought hope for the years to come for French football", shared Sylvain Choin, Director, Alliance Francaise de Chandigarh, Sector 36, as he cut a celebration cake along with teachers and students at the centre.

After a night in which millions of people took to the streets to celebrate France's second World Cup victory in 20 years, a sense emerged that Les Bleus had performed magic for a nation that had been suffering from a bout of the blues.
