Kylian Mbappe went full Federation Internationale de Football Association in semi-final victory over Belgium

France vs Belgium: Thierry Henry in dilemma – Football fans

Former Arsenal and Barcelona forward Henry, who was part of the squad that won the World Cup on home soil 20 years ago, is now assistant to Belgium coach Roberto Martinez and eyeing the chinks in France´s armour.

With 10 minutes to go and time running out for Belgium, they were certainly unlucky not to win a free-kick after Olivier Giroud brings Hazard to ground but the ref waved for the match to continue. With the win, Les Bleus have secured a ticket to the 2018 FIFA World Cup final in Moscow.

France will meet a European side only for the second time during the current World Cup, as their previous opponents outside of Denmark included Australia, Peru, Argentina and Uruguay.

There have been times when they have looked less than convincing in this campaign, but France and Belgium are both peaking at the right time.

'Nobody is out, even though we rested some of our players as a precautionary measure, ' the France boss said.

Kylian Mbappe has proved to be one of the players of the tournament so far this summer.

One attractive trick in the 57th minute left little doubt about whose night it was as Mbappe played in teammate Olivier Giroud with the kind of pass that you only ever see in video games from the Federation Internationale de Football Association franchise. "They played a great game against Brazil with a specific game plan", said the 49-year-old Deschamps.

'Most of them play in the Premier League, so we know them well. As France captain, Deschamps won soccer's most prized trophy in 1998.

England forward Harry Kane has scored six World Cup goals in Russian Federation.

The first four rescued boys have been placed in a ward set aside specifically for the cave rescue, a source at the hospital said. In addition to a son and daughter, Linda Daniels leaves behind five grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren, her family said.

Romelu Lukaku started the tournament on fire, and scoring 88.5, 79.5 and 101 points in his first three outings, placing him second in the race for the Golden Boot.

Mbappe and Lukaku are among the main marksmen for their countries.

Gary Cahill is Chelsea's 5th player at the semi-finals. "I think that Thierry Henry can be credited with some of the tactical ploys".

Three of the last four meetings between the sides have produced under 2.5 goals in total.

Croatia, who boast Real Madrid´s Luka Modric and Barcelona´s Ivan Rakitic in a strong midfield, emerged through extra-time and spot-kicks against Denmark before going through the same ordeal again against Russian Federation in Saturday´s quarter-final.

In team news, Corentin Tolisso is likely to drop out in favour of Blaise Matuidi after the Juventus midfielder has served his one-game suspension.

In typical Martinez style, Belgium's ultra-fluid attacking lines make them wide-open defensively, a situation that isn't helped by the presence of Alex Witsel at the base of midfield and Vincent Kompany in defence.

That was the slogan of Ukraine´s pro-EU revolution that toppled a Russian-backed president in 2014, and the video clip caused anger in Russia.
