What does the World Cup and France winning it tell US?

France today won the World Cup of Football. While USA did not even make it into the World Cup and was eliminated by the 3rd World Country of Trinidad and Tobago.
In fact all the teams appearing in the semi-finals set aside finals were all Europeans.
Why is that? As we all know Football players come from the Middle class, so isn't the answer then that the American Middle class has been rotted?
How did this happen? Well look at what France has, as do all European Countries:
France has Government run Universal Socialized Healthcare
France has Socialized college education
etc. Social services, so that the French Middle class get Healthcare, College education, etc. free for Taxes they pay, while same costs the American Middle class untold sums!
And all these Social services that France has Trump & Republicans call "Socialism" and oppose and Clinton Democrats have not even proposed, saying "How can we afford it?"
So what you think?

It tells that the current French generation of footballers has a great future ahead of them. They are still young but they have won the greatest tournament in the history of football.

You ask: "What does the World Cup and France winning it tell US?"
I generally would not reply about sport matters, but I think in this case there is much to learn for all management and leaders in why France won the World Cup.
1st and foremost it tells us that diversity makes for stronger team. For the French team, Le Blue, is the most diverse team with more than half of the players being either immigrants or born to immigrant parents. 2nd, it tells us that best managers/leaders are those whom have been in the trenches, that is have technical expertise, for the French coach was the captain of French team that won the World Cup in 1998.

I dislike about all these huge sports events. Because they have become ground for dirty politicians, such as Macron, earning points at the expense of their teams.

Talk about being Negative!
1st, huge sports events bring People together in celebration of Human spirit and Peace. And nothing does it remotely as well as World Up.
2nd, what has Macron done to make him a "dirty politician"?
With that said, I do agree that World Cup and Football in general seem to have gone way out of hand in proportion. I mean Football players getting paid $100-Million per Year! WTF, they are just doing what they like which is play this great sport!

Macron invited Trump to France right after Trump was elected, and as we all know Trump is the epi center of dirty politics. So by just Macron inviting Trump to France rather than speak out against this guy, that makes him dirty politicians in my book.

Zog, you are just being Mega negative. Football is the beautiful game, most loves game, so fan reaction is reflective of that fact.

I think the whole question is in the level of training of football players. In the genius and perseverance of the coach. The policy in this case is not the main place. The main thing is effort.

There is much more meaning to it than simple answer you given.
Specially considering that USA did not even qualify to enter the World Cup while France, that according to Republican Trump right-wing Media in USA is a "Socialist" or "Communist" for having Government run Universal Socialized Health care and many other Social services, didnt just enter the World Cup but won it too.
And France also has some of the highest immigration rates too.

But you know the US Women have won the World Cup of Football a couple of times and come 2nd a few times! SO US Women Football is like the German, French & Spanish National Men teams combined into one.With that said, I know what you mean and we sure can use more of what France and European Nations are doing and less of what Fox wants us to do.

Well American Women are much better than American Men. Question is why? I think far fewer American Women watch Fox than Men do, hence their body and soul is not poisoned and rotted by Fox as the body and soul of so many American Men who watch Fox more are.

Best World Cup ever. Thank you Russia. Cant believe the next World Cup is in Qatar!
WTF! It is 120 degrees there in Summer and unlike Russia that has many many great Cities, Qatar is a City State. FIFA please pull next World Cup out of Qatar b4 it is too late.
And yes totally agree with your Points that France is prime example of how Social services such as Government run Universal Socialized Healthcare, Socialized college education, etc. make for a much vibrant Middle class which vibrant Middle class is key to having top Football teams 🙈

Totally agree. Best World Cup ever. Thank you Russia for putting on such great games. It was just awesome from start to end. And WOW France! The best indeed they are. Showing that diversity and inclusion and immigration result in a greater Nation and a more powerful people. World Cup has shown itself to be true unifier of countries. My only gripe is that the next World Cup is 4 LONG Years from now. Booo hoooo hooo :(

Jessi, the fact is that most of the World does not really care about Womens World Cup of Football. But they should, since I think it is really awesome. But again most of the World cares only about Mens World Cup of Football. WTS. I think USA has much better Women than men :)
