The Burj Khalifa lit up to celebrate France's World Cup victory
HH Sheikh Mohammed also shared his congratulations with the winning side…
Last night’s 2018 FIFA World Cup final game between France and Croatia was a cracker – and while France emerged victorious with a convincing 4-2 win, the underdogs Croatia put up a fight worthy of the sporting history books.
In celebration of France’s World Cup win (this is now the second time they’ve been crowned champions) our very own Burj Khalifa lit up in a bold statement of congratulations
