World Cup: Africans Hail France Victory at World Cup
Though France is a European country, many of the fans of the French team that won the World Cup on Sunday are from Africa.
The reasons being that the core of the French team was made of black players of African descent who showed brilliance to make the European team win the cup in Russia.
Football fans from Nigeria and other African countries said that they supported France because no fewer than seven members of her first team were black.
To many of the fans, the victory for France has shown that black people from Africa will win the world cup in the nearest future.
