The World Cup is the biggest sporting event on the planet, and when you’re in the country that wins, you get to have an extra bit of fun. France added its second star to its logo on Sunday in a triumphant 4-2 win over Croatia, setting off a massive celebration across the nation.
Beyonce and Jay-Z were in the middle of their two-day stop in Paris on their OTR II world tour. The shows took over Stade de France this weekend, whih happens to be the national stadium of the team that just won the World Cup for the second time ever. And it seems that the biggest couple in music decided to let French fans have a bit of soccer before their tour left town
Beyonce posted a number of things from the tour stop on Instagram, including a video of her on stage watching the World Cup final with French fans.
The video she posted was of the free kick that resulted in France’s first goal, which was actually a Croatian own goal. The camera panned from the game on the video boards set up for the concert to the crowd of thousands celebrating with French flags.
That wasn’t the winning goal, of course. In fact, Croatia scored shortly after to even the score. But it was France’s day, and watching the final in France’s national stadium before a Beyonce show is probably about as good as it gets for a good portion of France. Regardless, it sounds like it’s going to be a fun night in Paris.
