Energetic, disciplined and clinical, France won the World Cup Sunday with a 4-2 victory over Croatia that, even in such a moment of achievement, still left the feeling there may be much more to come from Didier Deschamps' outstanding young team.This is not the France of 1984, the European champions with the creative genius of Michel Platini and Jean Tigana and it is a less expressive team than the 1998 World Cup winners dominated by the brilliance of Zinedine Zidane.They deserved to win," Deschamps said and it was hard to argue.Their triumph is indeed fully deserved – there simply was no better all-round team than France in this tournament.Argentina and Croatia both pushed France hard and both ended up conceding four goals.
