The players disembarked the plane along with the precious World Cup trophy, which they won for the second time in Moscow on Sunday evening after a 4-2 win over Croatia.

The trio gathered in the Georgievsky Hall of the Grand Kremlin Palace and, in place of a baton to symbolise the changing of the Host Nation, they used the official match ball for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ knockout rounds, the adidas Telstar Mechta.

"It changed not only the perception of Russian Federation overseas, it changed us", Sorokin said.

Supporters gather on the Champs-Elysees avenue near the Arch of Triumph (Arc de Triomphe) in Paris on July 16, 2018 as they wait for the arrival of the French national football team for celebrations after France won the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup final football match on the previous night. However, Didier Deschamps and his defensive tactics were vindicated as the French team was the most complete unit throughout the one-month extravaganza in Russian Federation.

Russia's success on the pitch made the World Cup especially appealing for the host country.

The game was really intense and honestly both teams deserved the victory but France was superior scoring the first goal in the 18 minute.

The players passed in an open-top bus, greeting fans and signing autographs along the way.

And a man in his thirties died after crashing his vehicle into a tree while celebrating shortly after the game in the small town of Saint-Felix in northern France.

Broken shop windows, pillage and other destruction lined a section of the Champs-Elysees, the post-game site for revellers.

Police fired tear gas to disperse the youths who responded by throwing objects and setting rubbish bins on fire, with the unrest causing some stampeding.

French media reported that authorities detained 90 people for questioning in the Paris region and some 290 around France.
