  • Trevor Noah Accused of Racism for Saying France World Cup Champs Are African

Six Paris metro stations were temporarily renamed in honour of France's World Cup winning champions after their 4-2 rollercoaster victory against Croatia.

France sailed through defeats of Uruguay, Argentina, Belgium and Croatia to finally kiss the golden trophy. You don't get that tan by hanging out in the south of France, my friends.

The comedian read part of Araud's letter in a "Behind the Scenes" segment of his show in which he appeared to double down on his original message.

The Daily Show host Trevor Noah has cleared the air about a joke he made when France won the Soccer World Cup, which landed him in hot water with many fans.

"Nothing could be less true". Only two players were born in Africa, but they came at the age of two.

Venezuela President Nicolas Maduro believes Africa and not France are the true winners of the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

Reacting to the ambassador's claim of France's diversity, Noah said it's a reflection of France's colonialism. How did you guys become French?

But eventually the French players - who had remained silent, perhaps bemused by the row, felt compelled to speak out. Why can they not be African? I'm saying, 'I see you, my French brother of African descent, ' " Noah says in the video. They use that as a line of attack.

Perhaps the best response to the row was by the French defender Benjamin Mendy, who replied to a tweet by the Sporf website which in a positive attempt to highlight the origins of the players put a flag next to each name in the French squad.

"So, this is what I find weird in these arguments is that people go 'they're not African, they're French!' Then I'm like why can't they be both?".

"Why is that duality only afforded to a select group of people?" "Why can they not be African? By calling them an African team, it seems that you are denying their Frenchness".

Noah's remarks weren't received well on social media, with most French natives noting that almost every team member, regardless of their race, was born and raised in France. I don't take their Frenchness away.

The South African comedian was accused of racism over his comments in a segment on the late night United States television programme this week, after France beat Croatia 4-2 in the Russian Federation 2018 final.

"That is what I love about America".

There are some football games that we know before they begin will go down in history, regardless of what happens.

The players had already nailed their leader with champagne at Luzhniki stadium, but evidently those bubbles were not sufficient.
