griezmann france jersey world cup

Synopsis: A huge amount of French pride is riding on the tournament, the first finals in which France has appeared since 1986. The only reason the team got here is because it’s hosting the tournament (thus having the dubious honor of being the first host country that had failed to qualify for the previous two World Cup tournaments). Iceland’s fans will leave their mark on the tournament with their distinctive “Viking clap,” which is actually ripped off from the 2006 Gerard Butler film “300.” Expect every other set of fans in Russia to steal it, too, and for it to inspire President Vladimir Putin to go topless – and invade Ukraine.
