Paul Pogba defiant after starring role for France

  • Belgian soccer fans celebrate their team's World Cup victory against Japan in Jette a Brussels municipality on July 2

It all shows how a World Cup can turn a player's fortunes around in a short period of time.

"You will never control him the whole game but, obviously, France are a very good team". We gave everything we have got. There's no question about that. "We have to play as if this were the first game in this tournament".

In one of the less memorable games of Russian Federation 2018 at the venue of the final, Denmark and France played out a goalless draw - a result which saw both sides progress, with Les Bleus top of the group.

"But that will be the challenge".

"If I didn't score all tournament but we won the World Cup, of course I would take that in a heartbeat", Giroud told a news conference.

"But we will do that and we'll make sure we are ready as a group to go again because the group have huge pride in their performances, in the way that they work". We want players at 100 per cent fit.

"It was close. Both sides played very well", said economics student Alpha Omba.




They'll have a little less than four days to rest up for the final against France, which has finished all of its games in regulation and has an extra day to prepare, having beaten Belgium on Tuesday. And we've proved that is possible.

"We are going through nice things right now, so we want to finish it and prove ourselves". It will be a different sort of scenario.

After his team fell behind, Martinez took off Dembele and pulled De Bruyne back into central midfield, and though Belgium did not get a goal, they controlled the play better and created more chances.

Kane, England's "most ruthless player", should not bear the blame for his missed opportunity, though, says Carragher. France, Belgium, Croatia and England will play in the semifinals to be recognized as the planet's best national soccer team.

Luckily, the unused substitute did not plough his knees into the ribs of any of his team mates but the performance ended with him lying on top of the pile of players.

"But I've said all along we're not flawless, we're not the finished article". We have to appreciate it and we are going to share this happiness with our families. We could easily have come to this stage and frozen.

"As is the case with any big tournament, we need to look at the younger generation and try to become stronger from tournament to tournament". I can not lie that when we beat Germany we thought that was the final. "I rooted for Croatia, wearing a Croatia jersey, and I could only dream of playing for my country and scoring one of the most important goals to send us to a final".
