Umtiti's header sends France into final

  • Belgium assistant coach Thierry Henry and Romelu Lukaku share a laugh during training for the 2018 Fifa World Cup in Dedovsk

For the generation of Hazard, De Bruyne, and Romelu Lukaku, beating Brazil in the quarter-finals was meant to be the breakthrough en route to winning a major tournament.

One of the Red Devils' many French connections was the biggest danger, as Eden Hazard, who began his career with Lille in Ligue 1, pulled the first attempt of goal just beyond the far post.

That was as close as Belgium came to taking the game to extra-time, though, as Lloris parried a long-range piledriver from Axel Witsel.

"When Deschamps took off Giroud to bring on N'Zonzi, then Pogba had more freedom but had freedom not to do silly things, he had freedom to keep the ball away from risky areas, to keep the ball, to assist Griezmann for a great chance, he was very very mature".

In 29 matches for France, both in the underage sides and the seniors, Pavard has not lost a game.

"I can not tell you everything, because we might apply the same plan against France".

In the USA, the match will be available to watch live on Fox at 2 PM ET/11 AM PT as well as on Telemundo.

Hazard did admit that he was initially unsure of the tactical tweek from Martinez, but eventually realised that the plan would be able to trouble the Selecao.

Cristiano Ronaldo will leave Real Madrid to sign with Juventus
The hefty fee is, in large part, due to the explosion in transfer fees in world soccer. Ronaldo was the Spanish club's all-time leading scorer with 451 goals in 438 matches.

Ronaldo scored 451 goals in nine years for Real to become the club's record goalscorer. His sights are now set on Turin, Italy, where he will wear the Juventus shirt.

Thai football team rescue celebrated in the Dutch media
He added that all of them were generally healthy and in good spirits, thanks to their "high immunity " from playing football. The 12-boy soccer team and their coach were rescued after surviving 17 days inside the flooded cave in northern Thailand.

Those sentiments were echoed by goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, who said: 'France have played anti-football.

"I'm totally blown away, this is insane", said 41-year-old Gilles Rove in Paris' Belleville neighbourhood.

Kylian Mbappe says he wants to win the World Cup and is not interested in individual awards such as the Ballon d'Or.

When do Belgium and France play?

At the final whistle, the France bench erupted onto the field and the players broke into dance. As long as I can help the team, it's all that matters to me.

With so many technically skilled players on both sides, expect a physical match. "The French team has less possession, but in defence, the French team is stronger". The World Cup equivalent of a local derby, with a heavy dose of national rivalry thrown in. They have, in fact, conceded the most goals of any remaining team. If they play at their best and similar to what they did against Brazil, then Belium have a decent chance of reaching the country's first FIFA World Cup final in the nation's history. Individual skills are always shown, but team play is the characteristic of the French play. And it was just as possible to picture Les Bleus falling apart under their unpopular manager Didier Deschamps. "The game will be complicated but we are ready for it".

Blaise Matuidi missed France's quarter-final win over Uruguay through suspension, but he returns to the team replacing Corentin Tolisso, but that is the only switch Deschamps has made to his French side, who are looking to emulate the heroes of 1998, where they stormed to World Cup glory on home soil.
