This means that the club will have at least one representative in the 2018 FIFA World Cup final.

"He has given so much to the France team and we have got a lot of respect for what he has done".

The Red Devils will be without a key - if less flashy - part of their puzzle against France, with Thomas Meunier picking up a second booking prior to them being wiped for the semi-finals.

On the other side is France, a world soccer titan vying for its third finals appearance in the last six World Cups. Belgium likely will score, but the caution big games like these often breed should limit them to just one goal.

For much of the match, Mbappe was quite possibly the best player on a field he shared with some of the game's brightest lights over the last half decade or so: Vincent Kompany, Olivier Giroud, Romelu Lukaku, Antoine Griezmann, Kevin De Bruyne, Paul Pogba, Eden Hazard. But there haven't been one or two secrets to make it work, it's been common sense.

Captain Harry Kane is the man leading England's charge in Russian Federation with six goals so far, putting him top in the race for the Golden Boot.

In addition to the France vs. Belgium game today, the all-Europe semifinal match, England vs. Croatia, is scheduled for tomorrow, Wednesday, July 11.

Speaking from an RT studio in Manchester, Mourinho admitted he "smelled a match without many goals" and that the game could have stayed at 0-0 or even 1-1. Defeated Argentina in the round of 16, 4-3. But some doubt whether he has the desire to back up his vast talent and challenge Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi as the world's best player.

"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". The Guardian's Martin Laurence seemingly went against the grain, however, and predicted a 2-1 win for Belgium. Lloris will face his Tottenham teammates, and while World Cups certainly can expect some of this type of thing, it's extreme enough in this case that Deschamps called it a "peculiarity". He wasn't almost as unsafe against the Red Devils as he had been earlier in the competition. They've moved up five spots since.

For Belgium, all eyes will be on the three gleaming stars from the nation's "golden generation".
