France is the only semifinalist I predicted pre-tournament that was correct. That’s the detail you get in the semifinal of the World Cup.
Belgium’s golden generation are seen by many as the most talented generation Belgium has ever had.
This will be such an interesting and exciting game to watch. Of course they have great talent and Eden Hazard is top of that list and he has carried the team like a captain should. France, strangely, have more to prove in this match, after a run in this tournament that can be described as “decent”, not “exceptional”.
Incredible scenes have filled the town centre after the team progressed through the competition reaching the semi-finals for the first time in 28 years.

The ex-Sheffield United defender even replied to Matt, offering a signed England shirt and saying he “must have a big chest”. If France hopes to win, it will need the teenage star to step up to the massive challenge ahead of him. “I’m sure Gareth will have addressed that after seeing how they struggled after conceding against Tunisia and then Colombia”.

The bright spot for England is they can expose Croatia’s slower defense, especially with the absence of Vrsaljko.
