    Modric looking like he’s been told he’s going to die whilst holding trophy for best player.

    And then everyone getting saturated and somebody appears with an umbrella, just one, for putin hahaha.
    And then another 5 minutes later they decide to get the others some cover.
    Infantino is absolutely drenched presenting the medals.

    Found it very weird the Croatian (president/PM whatever?) kissing the trophy, and even to a lesser extent Macron doing the same.

    was always very much under the impression players/staff only got to touch the cup, thats what all the sacrifice was about.

    He is also the second best poster on the entire Foz behind you

    You never know where the cup has been.

    Frank Skinner tells the story of how he and David Baddiel did publicity shots for Fantasy World Cup with the trophy just before the 1998 final.

    When nobody was looking he rubbed his knob over it and took great delight in watching various Frenchmen kissing it a few days later.

    agreed!!! very strange moment.... it seemed that all the emphasis was on the officials and not the actual players that won the damn thing....the whole presentation was wierd..

    Yeah it's funny but Infantino and Putin were bahaving themselves the best. The other 2 couldn't help themselves.
