  • Vermaelen believes France will be tougher opponents than five-times world champions Brazil

Thousands of football fans have flooded the streets of Paris after France won their match against Belgium to secure a place in the World Cup final against the victor of England's game tomorrow. "He played with maturity when he had to and when he had to hold position and keep control of the play he did".

The final five members of the Wild Boars football team were pulled from the cave on Tuesday just hours before the France- Belgium game after spending 17 days trapped deep underground.

They say Bale remains firmly at the top of Jose Mourinho's wanted list.

"The older players all played their role as leaders and the youngsters brought their energy". And for me, big occasions, big players, and numerous players they were not there in the big occasion. An elite group of divers, together with Thai Navy SEALs managed to get to them and successfully remove them. "When there was an opportunity to be seized, they took it". Brazil, Uruguay, Russia, and Sweden were all sent packing in the quarter-finals.

Just four teams remain, all of them from Europe: Belgium, France, Croatia, and England.

England vs India: VVS Laxman picks his playing XI for first ODI
I am sure he will be watching the way Eoin talks to the team, the way he goes about things and the decisions that he makes. Farbrace believes Root can learn from Morgan - and vice versa.

Whether he plays an attacking role or more defensively, De Bruyne is instrumental in directing Belgium with his awareness and swift passes.

It is the kind of incisive play he displayed all season as Manchester City marched to the English Premier League title.

"There is still a big step left, so we need to focus again. We want to finish this tournament in the best possible way".

The Belgian did have a decent start to the World Cup but it all petered out as he could not take the national side to the final in Russian Federation. The 76-year-old - who scored a hat trick in the final at Wembley against West Germany - told the Sun newspaper that Southgate had fostered an impressive spirit of togetherness in the squad.

Jose Mourinho's side reported for duty at Carrington on Wednesday and there were plenty of stars on show despite the absence of those at the World Cup.
