Follow the World Cup semifinal between France and Belgium

Pogba and Griezmann key to beating Belgium Rush

In addition to the France vs. Belgium game today, the all-Europe semifinal match, England vs. Croatia, is scheduled for tomorrow, Wednesday, July 11. Belgium v France for a place in a World Cup final, is already being labelled the "Thierry Henry Derby".

Belgian citizen Gregory Oleffe says Belgium is statistically a better team than France. "I take my hat off to my players and my staff".

"It's been two years to try and understand these footballers, the human beings behind the footballers, and to try and get a group that shared the same ambition, not just to use the national team to improve their brand", Belgian manager Roberto Martinez said in a news conference, via Reuters.

Thousands of delirious French fans celebrated the victory on the Champs-Elysees avenue and at a giant screen viewing area at the town hall in Paris, letting off smoke flares and waving flags.

Usually tournament awards are given to the players who are the most influential attackers or the leading goal scorer-and that's why the candidates we have been hearing until this point are Luka Modric, Eden Hazard and Harry Kane.

Boasting an impressive combination of experience and youthful zest, they controlled their quarter-final against Uruguay, running out comfortable 2-0 winners.

In the quarterfinals, Belgium stunned Brazil on the back of an attack whose reputation was years in the making.

Samuel Umtiti was the unlikely hero as France reached the World Cup final for the third time in 20 years courtesy of a 1-0 win over Belgium in St Petersburg on Tuesday.

Martinez bemoaned the goal his team conceded from a corner.

Dwight Howard Gave Back $5M In Buyout With Nets
He has a player option for the second year, so he could become a free agent next summer if he chooses to do so. He's now on his sixth different team, and fourth in the last four seasons.

France had their best chance with less than 10 minutes of the first half to go.

Piers Morgan, English talk-host: "High quality game but I've seen nothing that should terrify England if we make the final". Harry Maguire's brilliant aerial performances so far this tournament, culminating in him winning 22 headers against Sweden and Colombia, would suggest Jordan Pickford's goal won't be regularly troubled.

Belgium will be without Thomas Meunier for the first time in the tournament, as the PSG midfield has also picked up a suspension.

Les Bleus are headed to the World Cup final.

"He's brought something we didn't have", said Spanish coach Martinez.

Who do you think will win this match? "It is an opportunity in our careers and we have to grab it with both hands".

Croatia defender Dejan Lovren believes his exhausted team are ready to seize the opportunity of a lifetime. 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. From the beginning I have said that everybody had to keep calm.

"What we didn't have was global experience, the know-how of winning a World Cup, the know-how of being a footballer expected to perform in front of the world, and knowing how you feel in those moments".
