France Advances To World Cup Final

Olivier Giroud Thierry Henry France Belgium 2018 World Cup

Aman: The 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation reaches new levels of excitement as two favorites clash head on in the first semi-final match.

July 8, 2018 France's Olivier Giroud during news conference.

Two of the World Cup's outstanding players will now go head-to-head in St Petersburg, with De Bruyne aware of the threat that Mbappe will pose. "He is extremely fast and can decide every match in a flash", Vermaelen told reporters.

Many are calling this match the real final of the tournament, and, with nothing less than the world cup on the line, rivals France and Belgium will collide in the most high stakes fixture to be played in Russian Federation.

"France has always been one of the favourites to win the tournament".

"Thierry Henry is really important for us".

'I have a lot of respect for what Mbappe is doing, ' Hazard said. My job is to be good on the pitch, to represent France as well as possible.

The NFF boss and Member of the Organising Committee of FIFA Competitions took charge of the group phase matches between Iran and Portugal in Saransk on June 25th (1-1) and between Panama and Tunisia (1-2) also in Saransk on June 28th, as well as the round of 16 encounter between Sweden and Switzerland in Saint Petersburg on July 3rd (1-0). Whereas France has won 24 matches.

The game, as expected, has monopolized the front pages in both countries, complete with references to their long comic book traditions.

France's Aujourd'hui en France newspaper prepared a full-page spread featuring the two popular comic characters and said it was more than a match.

The French delegation also includes Minister of Sports Laura Flessel-Colovic and the renowned French football player, Jean-Pierre Papin.

"Courtois is hard to play against".

Brazil were dumped out of the World Cup following a very impressive first-half display by Roberto Martinez's side.

"I am convinced that we will break down this wall". "There will be gaps that will have to be used", the forward added.
