Pogba dedicates France's World Cup semi-final win to rescued Thai footballers

In 29 matches for France, first on the country's youth teams and then with the senior squad, the right back has not lost a game.

"Maybe in the other two - the (last) World Cup and the European Championship, some players did not have the belief yet of winning it".

Tintin and Asterix have always been rivals in the world of the comic strips for both are popular for their entertainment and art.

Belgium has never been to the final of a World Cup, but that's exactly what they look poised to do as the highest-ranked team (No. 3 in the latest Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings) left in the tournament.

Croatia players were less vocal on social media after narrowly progressing to their first semi-final appearance since 1994, but it can not be denied that the players are not motivated for Wednesday evening.

Let us know your prediction in the comment section below.

Belgium's 23-match unbeaten streak - including five in this World cup - can be attributed to the tactical nuances of Roberto Martinez, who was unceremoniously sacked by Everton in May 2016. Zidane was sent off in what was his final match.

"We had to take advantage a bit more in the counter-attacks, but congratulations to my players and my staff".


"In the changing room, Didier Deschamps was happy".

England's Harry Kane now looks set to take home the Golden Boot Award with six goals, but France's Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe are lurking with three apiece.

(France) President Emmanuel Macron came down to see us.

"We need to understand it's an important game, but I accept it's very hard after a game with the emotions we had today". If France hopes to win, it will need the teenage star to step up to the massive challenge ahead of him.

While England's results have been a lot better than their performances, that is not a bad thing in a tournament like this.

We saw the best of France going forward when Mbappe blew Argentina away, but I don't think Belgium will be as open as the South Americans were.

Belgians tasted bitterness in their beer on Tuesday after their dreams of a first World Cup final were ended by the narrowest of margins by their bigger French neighbours.
