  • World Cup Warm-Up Who will earn the right to lose to England

We saw them against Argentina perform the way they did and it was a different type of performance tonight.

The predominant weapon for both teams is their speed going forward, catapulting players with instinctive talent into positions from where their genius can prove lethal.

In terms of their attack, they have actually struggled- only scoring eight goals up to this point. "So I've made sure that my players are prepared for any scenarios from the beginning of the match and during the match as well if it changes".

This summer's edition of Les Bleus is composed of players who know France as a country that can win.

"I feel very proud for my group".

Prime Minister Charles Michel tweeted: "Bravo, Red Devils, for your performances and for having thrilled us all the way to the semi-finals".

Croatia qualify at expense of hosts Russian Federation
When they face England, both sides will already know whether France or Belgium have reached the final. "We think it worked well". This World Cup has seen unexpected teams taking their position in the semi-finals with their determination and skill.

Forward Kylian Mbappe, one of France's best players in Russian Federation, was not at the first 15 minutes of training open to the media, but Deschamps said he had a full squad to choose from.

Earlier, France coach Didier Deschamps told a pre-match news conference that four of his players would only have a light training workout, but that all 23 would be fit to play. "That was a precautionary measure", the coach added. But Deschamps was only interested in talking about France vs. Belgium.

His presence on the opposition bench has been described by France striker Olivier Giroud as "bizarre", with the Chelsea man keen to show Henry he has chosen the wrong camp. "We have been 49 days together", Deschamps said.

Just like players are free to choose which country or club they want to play for provided they abide by the law, similarly former players can not be judged by which country they decide to coach.

It was Varane's defensive partner, Samuel Umtiti, who got the decisive goal but the Real Madrid defender kept Romelu Lukaku quiet all game and it did not go unnoticed by Ferdinand.
