As you might have already heard,
Africa France won the World Cup today after a heated match against Croatia that ended in 4-2, crowning Les Bleus as the official winners. But many fans on the internet have been quick to point out the fact that France’s team is largely made up of African players or French players of African descent…
Let’s take a look at some of the most accurate tweets about France’s win!

I don't want to hear any more complaints about immigrants. We gave you this World Cup.

The French victory is a victory for migrants and the descendants of migrants all over the world.
It's a blow to racism, xenophobia and the belief that immigrants are bad for a country.
Well done to France and it's 14 players who have an African link!

How will the right wing in France ever recover from knowing that African immigrants are good at sports

France, a team led by French born black players and other members of the African diaspora, against Croatia, a team led by refugees. An illustration of the potential of embracing diversity in an increasingly political and racially polarized climate. #WorldCupFinal2018

The best thing about France winning the World Cup is that we get to rub it in Marine Le Pen’s face that African immigrants won it for them pic.twitter.com/1IqpW2d06A

France is celebrating their World Cup team that’s mostly players of African descent while simultaneously trying to rid themselves of African immigrants. pic.twitter.com/UJ79ARvY3K
