France advances to World Cup final, beats Belgium 1-0

They certainly hope to keep the party going on Sunday in the final in Moscow.

The victor will face either Croatia or England, who play Thursday (2am Malaysia time), in Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium on Sunday.

"Vive la France! Vive la Republique!"

Getting Griezmann on the scoresheet is another positive France will take into the clash between European neighbours.

France vs Belgium Live streaming India Time: France will head into the highly anticipated fixture with Belgium on July 10, Tuesday at 11:30 pm India time. There are dozens of teams who say they want to be world champions. It is a tactic that has become a hallmark of both Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur over the last two years. Now he is an assistant to Belgium coach Roberto Martinez and the two of them will be plotting how to get the better of France tactically. Zidane was sent off in what was his final match.

France have a plenty of attacking talent too, with Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe (pictured top, left and right) particularly impressing in roles behind Giroud, who has offered his side a muscular presence they lacked when Deschamps opted for Ousmane Dembele in their unconvincing opening win over Australia.

Umtiti's goal was a cracker, as he outjumped Marouane Fellaini to score his third and easily most important global goal from Griezmann's pinpoint delivery. "France are used to these big games but we coped with that side really well".

He said Henry had made Belgium into "a team that likes to attack".

However, the two sides have met 2 times before at the World Cup and both the games were won by France.

The Times said more than a dozen participants from different countries at the assembly confirmed the "showdown over the issue". Russian Federation ultimately sponsored the resolution and the American delegation did not issue any threats to the country.

Benjamin Pavard and Lucas Hernandez have grown as the tournament has worn on, but the real heroes have been Raphael Varane and Sam Umtiti.

Hours away from what will be the most important game in his career and for the national team he now coaches, a semifinal clash against France in Saint Petersburg, Martinez looks affable, relaxed and confident. They are trained by Didier Deschamps, who won the Cup in 1998 as a player and is now trying to do the same as a coach.

With Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar no longer in Russia, Eden Hazard and Mbappe have taken over as the stars of the World Cup and there was a buzz every time either got the ball.

But he's a more one-dimensional threat than Hazard.

"At the time, there wasn't the jersey of Belgium, that's why we wore the one of France".

"We had a training session of less than 45 minutes in which we understood everything the coach wanted, which is a tight defence that would force Brazil to open spaces for us, and this what happened especially in the first half".

"The difference between the defeat and winning was down to one dead-ball situation, that's how close the game was".

France's football-loving President Emmanuel Macron and Belgian King Philippe were watching from the stands, along with Rolling Stones front-man Sir Mick Jagger. The match kicks-off at 20:00 hrs (BST) at Krestovsky Stadium in St. Petersburg.

After reaching the quarterfinals at the 2014 World Cup and the European Championship in 2016, Belgium again missed the chance to get to an worldwide final and has yet to fulfil its lofty expectations.
