VIDEO: France stars projected onto Arc de Triomphe
If France’s players had any doubt about the level of import their World Cup title had back home, it was erased when their photos were projected onto one of the most celebrated monuments in the world.

The Arc de Triomphe honors those who died in the French Revolution and early 19th century wars, and sits above France’s Tomb of the Unknown Soldier from World War I.
How humbling must it be for those players to grace such a heavy monument (both in weight and substance).
