All hail the French

France have won the World Cup - and rightly so. They deserve all the accolades and the praise.

I once cheered for Argentina, in the era of Ricky Villa and Osvaldo Ardiles, both Tottenham Hotspur players. In those days, the Cockerel was the star of White Hart Lane and still is for me.

However, given the ugliness of racism, I have since left the Argentinean camp, and Italy lost my vote after the unfortunate Zidane head-butt incident. France has become my team of choice, especially since so many of its players resemble me.

Africa reigns supreme in the French team. Thank you France. To the people of the world, racial hamony, respect and tolerance go a far way. Well done, France.
