(CNN)South African comedian Trevor Noah has responded to criticism from a French diplomat over comments he made on his US comedy news show about the country's World Cup win.

After France lifted the trophy with a 4-2 victory over Croatia on Sunday afternoon, the Daily Show host congratulated Africa on winning the tournament.

"Yes. Yes. Africa won the World Cup! Africa won the World Cup!" Noah joked on the July 17 episode of the show.

"I get it. I get it. They have to say it's the French team, but look at those guys -- you don't get that tan by hanging out in the south of France," Noah said.

Many of the players in the French national team -- including stars Paul Pogba and Kylian Mbappé, who both scored in the final -- are of African heritage.
