Rudy Gobert reacts to France reaching the FIFA World Cup finals

World Cup yellow cards rule

"There is still a big step left, so we need to focus again". "[France] President Emmanuel Macron came down to see us". England has been craving a top title since it won the World Cup in 1966 and has a tremendous, unforseen opportunity ahead, with the weight of its country on its shoulders.

London's Wembley Stadium will host the semi-finals and the final. "We worked hard. I scored but we delivered a good match and I'm very proud of everyone". "It was so painful two years ago we have to savor it".

As for who they will be backing come Sunday, when France will face either Croatia or ancient rivals England, some in Belgium admit that, for all their closeness to French culture, especially in the French-speaking south, it will be hard to cheer for Tuesday's victors in the "Asterix vs Tintin" derby.

The team finished fourth in the 1986 edition of the tournament in what is the Red Devils' best performance in the global tournament so far.

Samuel Umtiti's 51st-minute header in the semifinal sent the French into the final, where they will be seeking their second win since 1998.

Pogba took to Twitter shortly after France beat Belgium to advance to the World Cup final.

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

Speaking to reporters, Kompany said: "When you get to this level, every team has got a [star] player, right?"

At full time, the party continued, France having inflicted pain on a talented generation of Belgian most talented players.

France midfielder Paul Pogba dedicated his side's World Cup 1-0 semi-final win over Belgium to the 12 Thai boys who were rescued from a flooded cave along with their coach on Tuesday. The victor will challenge France in Sunday's final.
