That's pretty rich, even by D4H standards.

If white privilege existed in French team selection, why wasn't 100% of the team white? The vast majority of their players come from a non-French background. Surely they could have fielded a team made up of 100% French white people if racial politics was the primary determinant of the team, no?

You're no different from Le Pen and far-right French political figures who have criticized the FFF for years for selecting teams who "aren't French enough."

He was also not a threat at all when he was on the ball. Mbappe was the only real threat France had on the ball. And Pogba was their only other creative player that was helping Mbappe get loose with his precision passes.

And honestly, Ousmane Dembele (the 21 year old that is second only to Mbappe when it comes to best young players in the world) is also better than him. Dembele is just young and the French coach wanted to keep Greizmann on the field because of white privilege. France didn't want to have the team be ALL BLACK. So they intentionally put some white players on the field knowing that they weren't actually their best 11.

And don't get me started on how white privilege has kept the worthless Olivier Girout on the field. Imagine being a striker on the World Cup winning team that led the tournament in goals scored and not even scoring 1 goal yourself. Karim Benzema (another African player) was kept home so that France could keep Girout on the field. The fact he wasn't on the team but Girout was is laughable. Everyone who follows world soccer knows Benzema is 10 times the player Girout is. But Benzema is African and Girout is white. So the coach kept the white player on the team and kept the better African player at home because of racial politics.

Griezmann was man of the match in the final. There is more to soccer than assists and goals. Griezmann commanded at least as much attention as Mbappe did (until maybe later in the tournament) and more than anybody else.
