France will be crowned champions of the 2022 World Cup after beating Switzerland to win the World Cup in their opening group game.
France went into the tournament as the underdog, but after dominating the group stage, their dominance was confirmed in the second game.
Their victory over Switzerland will put France in the hunt for a third consecutive World Cup title, the first time since 1966.
France started with a 1-0 victory over Germany on Tuesday.
“I am very proud,” French coach Laurent Blanc said after the game.
“For a lot of reasons, we played in a different way and we did not play in a way that we should have played.
It was the best group stage result for a French team since France beat Argentina in the group stages in the 1960 World Cup. “
That’s the quality we showed tonight.”
