So, just about anywhere then.

And just in case you want to see the celebrations in Paris:

Some of our friends and readers with a French connection have been enjoying the result and the celebrations.

Mark Neville is the UK representative of the ESF.

"Hope my French friends are having a party! A fantastic festival that bought football back to the people in the right way. Encouraging for England but still a fair way to go, Spurs players in abundance, zero trouble from the Russian hooligans and France worthy winners in the end. Can't wait for the Euros in 2020," he said on Sunday.

Another of our regular reader, Pady Daly form Ski Launch, was in France.

He had a pre-arranged business meeting at Montreuil-Sur- Mer in northern France.

"I had a meeting arranged and then France won the world cup and it all got very jolly in Montreuil-Sur-Mer! What an amazing and raucous night - and we got a flag to take home too!" said Paddy on Facebook.
