A nation on top of the world.

On the evening of France’s win at the World Cup Final, hundreds of thousands of people gathered in front of the Arc de Triomphe in Paris to celebrate the victory of a nation and its heroes.

“Victory is in Us,” could be read on the Arc de Triomphe through the evening of 12 July 1998. Twenty years later, the message on the Parisian monument has changed: “We won it in France.”
