Antoine Griezmann in disbelief over France World Cup win

Antoine Griezmann got a winners' medal and his third man-of-the-match award at this tournament as France won the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

The 27-year-old said: "I don't really realise what is happened yet - the World Cup is a lot.

"But I'm so proud of this team, the players, the staff. We were really united as a group. We did something incredible, we made history and we are going to enjoy it."

The Atletico Madrid striker admitted that he did not initially know why the referee had gone to VAR for the Perisic incident, which was initially given as a goal-kick.

"I tried to stay to the side a bit and then I did my normal routine," said Griezmann.

"I pretended it was a normal league match, stayed calm, concentrated. I did the same trick I normally do for a penalty and it's working."

Asked about the diverse nature of France's World Cup squad, which draws on talent from throughout the French-speaking world, Griezmann said: "That's the France we love, that's it. There are different origins but we're all united.

"It's the same in our team, there are many players who come from different backgrounds but we all feel the same, we all play for the same jersey, the cockerel, we give everything we have for our country and it's beautiful."
