  • Thomas Vermaelen considers Belgium to be genuine World Cup title contenders

Paul Pogba dedicated France's World Cup semi-final win against Belgium to the 12 boys who survived a harrowing ordeal trapped underground in Thailand.

From a Belgium corner, Toby Alderweireld tested Lloris with a smart shot on the turn but as the half progressed France began to create more.

Authorities in Paris have made a decision to put up a giant screen for the World Cup final on Sunday so fans can watch Les Bleus take on the victor of the Croatia versus England semi-final.

Like Martinez himself, he now wants the team to try and win Saturday's battle for third place against either England or Croatia, who play their semi-final on Wednesday.

"I've been dreaming for about a month", Backaert, who works in logistics, said at an outdoor screening in Brussels.

Goal scorer Umtiti said the win had come on the back of the work of the entire team.


"It is something exceptional - I am very happy for my players", he said.

They're young, they're brash and they're collectively worth a billion dollars. "This game belonged to the players".

England midfielder Dele Alli admits that he is "enjoying" the ride in Russian Federation and hopes to continue bringing the nation together by reaching the World Cup final.

Thomas Vermaelen picked out Kylian Mbappe as the major threat to Belgium's chances of making their first appearance at a World Cup final, saying the 19-year-old forward can "decide every match in a flash". "We will do everything it takes to ensure we are on the right side this time, and not repeat what happened two years ago". The players today are going to be even stronger in two years' time and in four years' time, but today they are already competitive. We would reach the final. We will give this final match everything. We could easily have come to this stage and frozen. I'd helped send New Order's song to number one, buying it on cassette in HMV, upstairs in Top Shop. "It was an important step and we hope to be celebrating on Sunday - it is fantastic". We worked hard defensively.

"It's very good for Belgium", she said.
