France Hands Belgium First Loss, Advances To Finals

Council chiefs are understood to be keenly aware that there is no time to fully consult regular park users and people who live nearby after rushing to organise the screenings following England's quarter-final success over Sweden, but believe they are tapping into widespread enthusiasm for England's nail-biting quest to bring home the trophy.

"It's coming home" makes up the chorus of the 1996 song "Three Lions", by The Lightning Seeds.

The French will remember well what happened when the teams last met, with Belgium tearing them apart in a 4-3 friendly win in Paris in June 2015.

There has been a lot of talk about Raheem Sterling but he's never hidden at this World Cup, never stopped running nor stopped giving his all.

And the presence of French World Cup victor Thierry Henry on the Belgian coaching staff as one of Martinez's assistants adds extra spice to the occasion. With the scores at 2-1 in favour of Belgium as the game headed to a nervy climax, Courtois pulled off what was probably the save of the tournament after Neymar had conjured a sublime dipping shot on goal to preserve the Red Devils' lead to cap off a stunning display.

How can a player miss the World Cup final through suspension?

The charismatic 49-year-old - who is in Russian Federation as a TV pundit for English broadcaster ITV - told The Daily Mail Modric and fellow superstar Ivan Rakitic will pose problems for England in their World Cup semi-final on Wednesday they have not had to encounter thus far.

While midfield battles could be where this semi-final is won and lost, England are once again concentrating on what they can control.

The most unpredictable and entertaining FIFA World Cup in recent memory wraps up this week, with just four matches left to be played.

Dozens of English soccer fans began heading for Moscow in a last-minute rush on Tuesday in an effort to be part of a potentially historic sporting moment as England take on Croatia in the World Cup semi-finals.

"Similarly, our model's modal projection is for Belgium to defeat France and England en route to winning the tournament".

Dalic blamed Croatia's opponents for smothering the creative talents of Luka Modric and said he expected a more open match against England in Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium tomorrow.

This is only the second time the model has changed its forecast all tournament and did so after its pre-competition favourites Brazil crashed out 2-1 against Belgium in the quarter-finals.

"We've been always returning to the 1998 team.... putting a new burden on Modric and his team".

And with four goals each, Denis Cheryshev tied as the third-top scorer with Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku.
