This is how the president celebrates
Emmanuel Macron let it crash in Moscow – in the stands and later in the world champion dance with players Benjamin Mendy, In which Wladimir Putin already a little skeptical looked at the victory kiss of Macron for national coach Didier Deschamps, Anyway: Beyoncé also celebrated in the new French national jersey with the two stars at their concert yesterday at the Stade de France in Paris.

President without patron
The bravest woman of the evening and a worldwide crowd favorite was Croatia’s president Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic, by Stoffel-President Putin was allowed to stand in the rain – and the soaking wet nevertheless hugged and hugged everyone who fell into her hands. It was the most bizarre prize-giving ceremony in World Cup history, with a Croatian heroine and her proud national team.
Vladimir Putin is the one dude out there with a personal umbrella holder. Why am I not surprised? pic.twitter.com/eifAGxV08h

Great respect to the president of Croatia: Not missed a match, traveling in economy class and being in the stands with the fans. She has not taken the pay for the days at work. pic.twitter.com/uqEiymRgRq

The Croatian president showed more passion in this 10 minute award ceremony than the entire DFB squad in 270 minutes. # FRACRO # WM2018 pic.twitter.com/0IOrc41aIP

And what else happened at the final? Kylian Mbappé has with the activist of Pussy riot clapped, who suddenly stood in front of him. His High Five is celebrated worldwide – even though he certainly did not know who he had in front of him. And the Croats suspect that Fortnite has been diligently gambled in Moscow’s Moscow video room instead of being at stake …

For the last time: Michy Batshuayi
And another farewell: Belgium’s Dortmunder Michy Batshuayi was certainly the funniest Twitterer of the World Cup. His conclusion: “I did not win the golden shoe – but I have earned the golden post.” Oh yes, you can say that 🤪⚽️🥅.
I dont know but I deserve the Golden Post https://t.co/FJvhcV6Vzp

Winter is coming
And now? Four and a half years no World Cup, the final 2022 will take place on the fourth Advent. Winter is coming! Many now suspect that France – like all defending champion – at the gingerbread World Cup retires in the preliminary round, and then at least has time for the Christmas shopping.
Just thinking about how we’re trading for the winter of 2022 #WorldCup like … pic.twitter.com/I6NoKtcf8Z

Of course, France did that very cleverly to become world champion in 2018. This is the 2022 in Qatar after the preliminary round of shit behind and can buy Christmas gifts.

The LEAD song of the day (1): Umbrella
Where was Rihanna with her umbrella, as president Kolinda she needed so urgently?!?
The LEAD song of the day (2): Nathalie
France? Russia? Moscow? There can only be one song of victory: Gilbert Bécauds legendary Nathalie.
The LEAD song of the day (3): Sleep the clock around
So, that’s it after 32 issues with the morning Netzer. Many thanks to iris and the editors of the LEAD that I was allowed to write this column, it was a dream. But now sleeping is nice again. My very personal LEAD song of the day: “Sleep the Clock around” by Belle and Sebastian.
The closing word from LEAD: “Nos differences nous unissent”
Okay, last word. The most important set of the 2018 World Cup stands on the jerseys of the French World Champions: “Nos differences nous unissent”, “Our differences unite us”. Please note – in Germany, by host Russia, worldwide! Merci et au revoir!
