France defeat Germany to remain undisputed champions

France came from behind once again to retain the UFWC title and ensure they remain the undisputed official and unofficial football world champions. Antoine Griezmann scored twice in the last half hour for France against struggling Germany. Germany took the lead from a penalty awarded after Paul Pogba was caught in possession and Leroy Sane’s cross hit Presnel Kimpembe on the arm. Toni Kroos scored from the spot, just squeezing the ball under Hugo Lloris.


Mbappe rescues UFWC title for undisputed champs France

FIFA World Cup winners France staged a very late fightback to retain the UFWC title and remain undisputed official and unofficial football world champions in this 2-2 draw with Iceland. Teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe was the hero, arriving from the bench with his side 2-0 down and half an hour left to play, only to make one and score one in a remarkable last-four-minute turnaround. Although France had most of the play in the first half, Iceland took the lead after 30 minutes when Aston Villa midfielder Birkir Bjarnason side-footed home from the edge of the box.


France retain UFWC title against Netherlands

France beat the Netherlands in this UEFA Nations League match to retain the UFWC title and remain unofficial (and official) football world champions. France were again without injured captain Hugo Lloris. Alphonse Areola deputised in goal. And the Netherlands were without Wesley Sneijder, who played his last match for the Dutch on Thursday after announcing his retirement from international football. Kylian Mbappe gave France the lead in the 14th minute from close range. The Netherlands equalised midway through the second half when Ryan Babel finished a nice team move. But France regained the lead when Benjamin Mendy set up Olivier Giroud to score the winner.
