Millions take to the streets to celebrate France's World Cup win
Amid the revelry, small minority clash with police and loot stores
Celebrations further marred by two reported fatalities
As the heavens opened in Russia and torrential rain lashed down upon the triumphant French team, millions took to the streets of Paris in celebration.
Twenty years on from exploits of the “Rainbow team,” whose victory on home soil united a nation, Les Bleus had once again won the World Cup.
Fifteen members of France’s 23-man squad are of African descent, prompting goalscorer Antoine Griezmann to say: “That’s the France we love. Different origins but we are all united.”
