Umtiti's header sends France into final

  • Hugo Lloris expects Thierry Henry to have mixed emotions when France meet Belgium in Tuesday's World Cup semi-final

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.

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.
