The France national football team received a warm welcome return home from the Parisian public on Monday - a day after they suffered an agonising penalty shoot-out defeat to Lionel Messi's Argentina in an enthralling 2022 FIFA World Cup final at the Lusail Iconic Stadium in Qatar.

The victory marked Messi's first World Cup triumph to put the icing on the 35-year-old's glittering, trophy-laden career, while Argentina have won international football's biggest prize for a third time.
