World Cup!! France vs Belgium Today, @ 7:00pm


France and Belgium only confirmed the European dominance at the 2018 World Cup in Russia by eliminating the only two remaining South American heavyweights in their respective quarter-final ties.

The neighbours have thus set the stage to what could be a thrilling semi-final contest on Tuesday evening when they clash each other at Saint-Petersburg Stadium.

France showed the opposite display to the one they had produced in the R16 against Argentina. Kylian Mbappe firepower led them to a fantastic win back then, but it was not present in the match against the Uruguayan stern defensive line.


Team News

Olivier Giroud will lead the line with the likes of Mbappe and Griezmann supporting from behind.

The main problem for Martinez will be the absence of the PSG wing-back Thomas Meunier who is suspended after receiving his second yellow card of the tournament against Brazil.


France likely starting XI

Lloris – Pavard, Varane, Umtiti, Hernandez – Pogba, Kante – Mbappe, Griezmann, Tolisso – Giroud.

Belgium likely starting XI

Courtois – Boyata, Alderweireld, Kompany, Vertonghen – Fellaini, Witsel, Chadli – Lukaku, De Bruyne, Hazard.
