France bounces past Uruguay into World Cup semifinals

Gary Lineker England Cameroon World Cup 1990

This match, for Belgium, is the dream case for its players as they will be facing what many say is the best in the world right now, and defeating the Brazilian team would be life-changing for numerous star-studded Belgium roster. "Against Argentina [in the last 16], he made an assist for Mbappe and we need this sort of supporting play". The 1998 champions will next face either Brazil or Belgium on Tuesday in St. Petersburg.

Following Muslera's mistake, the score stayed at 2-0 with France advancing to the semi-finals for the first time since 2006 to set up a date with either Brazil or Belgium.

Many French fans had been expecting Uruguay's central defensive pairing of Diego Godin and Jose Gimenez to play a crucial role in the match.

So the Three Lions first ever penalty shoot-out victory at a World Cup will still stand.

It's a tough one to call and I think this one might well go into extra time, but I tip France to just edge home victorious.

"It is true Olivier has not scored yet, but - I repeat - yet", Deschamps said.

The two other quarter-finals are scheduled to take place tomorrow.

France had 57 per cent of the possession and made almost 200 more passes than Uruguay but only had two shots on target - a meagre return for a line-up that included Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe and Paul Pogba. The Uruguayans have seen what he is capable of.

"We can link our passes better - there were good opportunities that broke down because the pass wasn't quite right", he admitted. "Apart from that, they didn't have many great opportunities". Once he came on, I felt we lost the initiative a little bit.

"I want to denounce in front of Federation Internationale de Football Association and with the support of all my Colombian compatriots, the match of the round of 16 between Colombia and England", reads a translation of the petition, which was started by Colombian law student Juan Diego García Muñoz. "Today we played against opponents that were stronger than we were".

"I said many times that no country under 40 million people has won the World Cup since 1954, since after the Second World War".
