With the World Cup over, here's a look at what we've learned from the tournament, including a warning for the winners and sympathy for Neymar.

Europe still rules the world

Western Europe has won four World Cups in a row, a sequence that no region has achieved before. Yet four different teams have triumphed, which shows that the strength is regional and not tied to one nation. The rest of the world, with about 94 percent of the planet's population, has produced just one top-three finish at...

FIFA's World Cup legacy in Russia should be measured by the people, not the politics

ESPN investigative reporter T.J. Quinn reflects on how Vladimir Putin used the World Cup as part of his geopolitical strategy.

MOSCOW -- In this line of work, you're taught to be cynical and contrarian. So when Gianni Infantino, the FIFA President, says "Today I am a happy man ... as far as I am concerned, we all fell in love with Russia," you want to blow holes in it.

It's very easy to do. From the way the World Cup even got to Russia (remember the "destroyed" computers?), to the state-sponsored doping program that gutted the country's Olympic medal count and led to a lifetime ban for the minister of sport and former head...

France celebrate World Cup win: The story from the streets of Paris

Julien Laurens explains why France's 2018 World Cup title and the resulting celebration feels more special than Les Bleus' first title in 1998.

PARIS, France -- Antoine Griezmann, Paul Pogba and Kylian Mbappe's goals against Croatia in last Sunday's 4-2 win in the World Cup final prompted massive public ecstasy as people flooded the streets all over France to celebrate Les Bleus' second trophy. Not only Paris, but Marseille and Lyon were awash with bleu, blanc et rouge on Sunday evening.

Those scenes were repeated in the capital on Monday as Didier Deschamps and his men triumphantly returned home from Russia to celebrate with their people...

Inside France's World Cup party: The Pogba Show, songs for Kante, Macron's joy

Julien Laurens explains why France's 2018 World Cup title and the resulting celebration feels more special than Les Bleus' first title in 1998.
France paraded down the Champs-Elysees as hundreds of thousands of cheering fans celebrated their second World Cup triumph.
Led by captain Hugo Lloris, France were given a heroes welcome as they arrived back in Paris for the first time since they beat Croatia to win the World Cup.

France's World Cup winners left each other late on Monday night, some later than others, some more tired than others and some still full of beans after two days of non-stop partying.

They have two stars in their eyes and on their shirt now, too. After their triumphant 4-2 win against Croatia on Sunday afternoon and the official start of their holidays on Tuesday morning, the 23 musketeers came home victorious from their campaign in Russia on Monday, welcomed in Paris by hundreds of thousands...

Cocksure Dejan Lovren must build on Croatia exploits for Liverpool

Former Liverpool defender Steve Nicol doesn't mince his words when responding to Dejan Lovren's comments about being one of the world's top defenders.

Who was the pre-tournament favourite to be the last Liverpool player standing in the World Cup? Brazil's Roberto Firmino, perhaps?

As it transpired, Croatia's Dejan Lovren survived the longest. A 4-2 defeat against France in the final took some wind out of his sails, after an amusing but ill-timed self-assessment of his talents. 

His club manager Jurgen Klopp was also amused. He didn't exactly call Lovren the Miles Davis of own-trumpet-blowers, but it wasn't far off. He didn't disagree...

World Cup stock - Mbappe, Hazard, Lozano impress; Messi, Neymar, Salah down

The World Cup always offers players a chance to prove themselves on the biggest stage of all. Sometimes that even means a lucrative move to a bigger clubs afterwards (see Golden Boot winner James Rodriguez moving from Monaco to Real Madrid four years ago).

But which players' values will have gone up? And which have gone down after their exploits in Russia?

Here is a list of those whose stock has changed since the start of the World Cup.

KYLIAN MBAPPE (France, PSG)

Arguably the star of...
