Moscow: France were crowned the 2018 FFA World Cup champions after beating Croatia 4-2 in the final, and wishes were pouring in from fans and players around the globe.

However, Lieutenant Governor of Puducherry Kiran Bedi’s tweet seemed to have caused a trouble.

 

"We the Puducherrians (erstwhile French Territory) won the World Cup. Congratulations Friends. What a mixed team-all French. Sports unites," she had tweeted on Sunday right after the match.

Twitterati slammed her for this tweet.

France won their second World Cup 20 years after their maiden triumph on Sunday, seeing off a dogged and desperate Croatia side who refused to lie down in one of the most electrifying finals in recent years.

The breathless 4-2 victory under stormy skies at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium means Didier Deshchamps' side -- balancing youthful vitality and tournament nous -- have buried the pain of their defeat in the Euro 2016 final on home soil.

For the small nation of Croatia, the loss spelled bitter pain but fans at home will celebrate the best run in the nation's history, which featured a stunning win against Argentina and a semi-final victory against England.
