Pogba dedicates France victory to Thai cave survivors

Olivier Giroud France

"I feel ill", said Denis Backaert, 34, after watching France prevail 1-0 in the tightest of semi-finals between two quality teams in St Petersburg.

Giroud the weakest point for France, Mbappe's pace will scare the daylights out of most defences - not sure how Maguire and Stones would cope with him running at them.

France's only previous World Cup triumph came when they hosted the tournament in 1998, but Mbappe was not alive to see Zinedine Zidane spark wild celebrations in Paris. He's broken out over the last 12 months, especially at the World Cup.

But it is thought that Mbappe or England captain Harry Kane could yet rival Ronaldo by excelling in Sunday's World Cup final.

This afternoon, we've got France taking on Belgium. "And in my role I've got the eyes into Euro 2020 so it's not the right moment to make an assessment just yet".

The loser of that match will battle Belgium for third place in the consolation match Saturday.

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.

In the match, France relied on their excellent set of defenders, as Samuel Umtiti and company managed to hold the high-flying offense of Belgium scoreless.

One thing to keep an eye on in this match is the legs and how exhausted the players will be, especially with Croatia.

England team predicted to face Croatia in World Cup semi-finals Sun, July 8, 2018 England face Croatia in the World Cup semi-finals - but how will Gareth Southgate's men line-up?

One would think that the pace and skill of Belgium's Eden Hazard would be the biggest sources of danger for France on the night, yet that came from within the French squad, at the sound of the final whistle.

"Finals have to be won".

Pogba and France will advance to the World Cup Final, where they'll take on the victor of Croatia and England - for a chance to bring home the nation's second World Cup championship. The victor will challenge France in Sunday's final.
