France beat Croatia in yesterday’s World Cup final. While it sounds like France is singing with one voice today, the country is deeply divided over immigration and the impact of immigrants on French culture. France’s winning team is made up largely of the children of immigrants. Fifteen of the 23 players have links to African nations, mostly former French colonies.
