French rugby fans are riding high on jubilations following a significant victory of their national team over New Zealand's All Blacks during the inaugural match of the Rugby World Cup. Scoring 27-13, this triumph has fuelled French supporters' optimism that their team might this time secure the much-coveted Webb Ellis Cup.

Though the French team's performance was deemed average, it was more than sufficient to outclass the three-time world champions in a game staged at the Stade de France on a chilly Friday night. In the wake of the victory, the streets of Paris were flooded with ecstatic supporters. Their exhilarations echoing through the city as they celebrated their country's early triumph over the much-favoured Kiwi team.

The national optimism mirrors the enthusiasm displayed throughout Paris' streets. Pundits have quickly hailed France as early tournament favourites, a claim fuelled by their performance in overcoming a team of New Zealand's calibre convincingly. With the Thomond Park victory being so recent, French fans can't help but envision their team hoisting the Webb Ellis trophy.

The unfolding tournament promises more thrilling encounters as teams vie to seize the Webb Ellis Cup. For the moment, however, all French eyes are nailing their gaze on the prized trophy and remain optimistic of their early tournament prospects.
