Although Rami did not play a match with France throughout the 2018 World Cup, Rami expressed pride of being a member of the champion team to lift the 2018 World Cup trophy.
“This country has suffered, there has been amalgam but now we are making the country happy,” the footballer told beIN Sports.
Rami did not hesitate to share his love for Morocco with the audience.“I am of Moroccan Descent and I am French; I like my two countries. We never saw a team from France with as much joy,” he said.
He added that before every single game, the footballers “danced and sang.”
“France is a world champion with its diversity. This country deserves that. We need it,” said Rami, responding to the criticism the French team received recently from football fans.
Several social media users criticized the French football team for having many footballers of African descent amongst its ranks.
“It’s a crazy thing. Too much sacrifice and work. We are world champions,” said the happy footballer.
France clinched the World Cup title after defeating Croatia 4-2 in the tournament’s final match on Sunday at Luzhniki stadium.
Talented French youngster Kylian Mbappe won the FIFA Young Player award after delivering astonishing performances throughout the world premier tournament.
Mbappe, who also plays for Paris Saint Germaine, is the second French player in a row to clinch that title after teammate Paul Pogba.
“Technical qualities such as skill, style and charisma are taken into account, but so are other important factors such as a sense of fair play and a genuine impression that the player is playing for the love of the game,” said FIFA.
