Vive La France
Jason Cowley and Stephen Bush are joined by Helen Thompson, Professor of Political Economy at Cambridge University, to discuss France's victory in the 2018 world cup final, and whether Croatia were in fact the better team on the day. They also reflect on how the French team's progress has intersected with domestic politics, and what its success might mean for President Emmanuel Macron's centrist vision for his country. Finally, they analyse the England team's run at the tournament, and look ahead to what could be next for the likeable young players who captured the country's imagination over the past few weeks.Get in touch with questions and comments on Twitter: @JasonCowleyNS, @stephenkb or @ns_podcasts.
