How to Watch France-Belgium World Cup Semi Final 2018
The first semi-final of the 2018 FIFA World Cup takes place on Tuesday, with France and Belgium set to clash at the Saint Petersburg Stadium in Russian Federation.
Fellaini flashed a header just wide and Axel Witsel forced a good save out of Lloris as Belgium pushed forward for an equalizer and France hung on in six minutes of stoppage-time to reach their third World Cup final.
"They believe it's coming home and rightly so".
"We had more chances today, we had more control of the match", Kompany said.
The Red Devils are unbeaten against Les Bleus in their last three meetings, including that 4-3 victory in Paris three years ago and have been in scintillating form in Russian Federation.
Belgium showcased their ability to turn defence into attack as Jan Vertonghen won the ball and linked up with De Bruyne.
Conversely Belgium were noticeably failing to emulate their first half form in the attacking third. I play against teams that play so defensively 90% of the time. Mertens nearly had an immediate impact as his cross was headed skywards by Varane and De Bruyne missed his kick when coming in to hit a volley. "For sure, I would rather him being with us and giving me the advice, but you can't be jealous, and it is not shocking me at all", said French forward Olivier Giroud, about Henry, reported Reuters.
"So we're excited about the future but we also want to make the most of the opportunity we have tomorrow".
"We wanted to get into the final", he said. A pair of Diego Maradona second-half goals sank Belgium that day.
Belgium started the stronger of the two teams in Saint Petersburg but Umtiti's header from a corner in the 51st minute was the crucial breakthrough as the defender stole the limelight from jet-heeled Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann.

France and Belgium will meet in the 2018 FIFA World Cup semifinals later today in St. Petersburg, Russia, pitting the neighboring countries (the game is being billed as "La Fête des Voisins", or The Neighbors' Party) against each other for a chance to play for the title Sunday against the victor of Wednesday's England-Croatia matchup.

"What we didn't have was worldwide experience, the know-how of winning a World Cup, the know-how of being a footballer expected to perform in front of the world, and knowing how you feel in those moments".
Martinez didn't talk about the end of an era, but he was already looking to the future after the match.
"We need to look at the younger generations, but we have the drive and ambition". "From tournament to tournament, that's the drive and the ambition".
France started the tournament in Russian Federation slowly, struggling for goals in the group stages but hit their stride in an impressive 4-3 victory against Lionel Messi's Argentina in the first knockout round.
