    It's been 20 years since France's sole World Cup triumph; the star of France's team, Kylian Mbappe, had not yet been born the last time France hoisted the trophy.

    Expectations are high this time around that they can take home football's biggest prize and, with more than 200 outdoor screenings of the final, the mood in France is jubilant.
