The World Cup 2018 final is now in sight.

Deschamps now has the chance to become the third person to win the World Cup as a player and a coach, after German great Franz Beckenbauer and Brazil's Mario Zagallo. Before the tournament started, there were doubts over us.

In the match, France relied on their excellent set of defenders, as Samuel Umtiti and company managed to hold the high-flying offense of Belgium scoreless.

"They are favourites, but we will do our best to surprise them". "We have to play as a team like we have done so far in the knock out stage". "But it's a game that's part of the World Cup.so we'll put in that performance and give it the best we can".

Dalic's side were clearly exhausted, but they managed to fight on to the end of two hours of gripping football to take the country of just over four million people into the final for the first time.

Captain Eden Hazard shone at times but Kevin De Bruyne was quiet and Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku was a shadow of the player he had been earlier in the tournament, even though Belgium enjoyed most of the possession. Three times now we've been a goal down and have come back, and that really says a lot about our team spirit. "It is the most important one of all".

"I was just changing my lens as the players ran towards me", Cortez told AFP. "To be in a semi-final - you can smell it. Tripps scoring the free kick, you kind of think it's written in the stars for you to go to the final and hopefully do something special", Walker added. "Then they suddenly realised that I was underneath them", said Mexico City-based Cortez.
