France vs Belgium

One game stands in the way of Les Bleus winning a second World Cup and it must be said that it's hard to see past them.

Kylian Mbappe has been tipped for big things for a couple of years now and he has certainly lived up to his billing in this World Cup. France maybe played a little defensively but the beauty of football is that you can choose the way you want to play.

It matters not how you win the World Cup, and France are just 90 minutes away from lifting the trophy for the second time.

In an enthralling, albeit highly tactical rather than incident-packed match, it was once again a set-piece that proved decisive with Umtiti's near-post header from an Antoine Griezmann corner settling matters. "The Euros were at home, but here we can still feel the support of the French people", said Deschamps, who praised the commitment of his players.

Didier Deschamps' France secured their place in another major final with a narrow victory over Belgium on Tuesday night. Making that objective clear, De Bruyne said: "We've got just one wish now: to win a sixth match in Russian Federation so we can go away on holiday even more at peace with ourselves".

Defender Samuel Umtiti scored the victor in the 51st minute, beating Marouane Fellaini at the near post to head home Antoine Griezmann 's corner.

France will play England or Croatia in the final at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium on Sunday, July 15, in FIFA World Cup 2018 Russian Federation final.

Eden Hazard with the ball at his feet on the edge of the area and Kevin de Bruyne dictating play are unsafe prospects and it was risky business for the French, but when they did get a chance to counter, they were frighteningly quick and equally unsafe.

In scenes reminiscent of France's 1998 World Cup win, delirious crowds surged up the Champs-Elysees avenue and surrounded the Arc de Triomphe, waving flags and letting off flares.

"It brings back excellent memories, but that was in the final, this is the semifinal".

Furthermore, the French defensive formation hindered De Bruyne to make any of his impressive runs towards the box and he was nowhere to be seen for most of the evening.

While French fans were elated at the final whistle, there were probably plenty of smiles from the English and Croatian camps, who after witnessing this match must have raised hopes for the final.

On Thursday, Strzok said the message was written late at night after Trump's campaign comments disparaging a slain USA soldier. Chairman, at no time in any of these texts did these personal beliefs ever enter the realm of any action I've taken".

For months, Deschamps has been downplaying expectations by making out that France's youth was a drawback, not its strength.
