How to watch the semi-finals

France is back in the World Cup final for the first time since Zinedine Zidane's headbutt in 2006.

Gascoigne, visibly emotional having heard that recounting of the story for the first time, and his reaction serve as a display of how impactful Robson had been in his young life at that time.

France will face either Croatia or England in the final on Sunday in Moscow.

Lukaku who joined Manchester United in July of 2017 scored an incredible 27 goals in all competitions for the Red Devils in his debut 2017-18 season.

That surprisingly angry exchange was the only bitter moment in an otherwise routine news conference, where manager Zlatko Dalic admitted playing two games that went to penalties had taken a toll but said Croatia would be ready.

France's Kylian Mbappé elicited all the feelings from fans on the Internet when he executed a truly incredible back heel pass in the 2018 World Cup semifinal against Belgium. "It has a slightly different feel for me, but it's nice to hear people enjoying it again".

In addition to touching on England's preparations for the nation's biggest game in almost three decades, Southgate took the time to praise World Cup hosts Russian Federation.

Mahrez completes long-awaited Manchester City move
City were left furious when Leicester set a price tag of £90m which saw City pull out of the deal at the start of the year. The midfielder who has been unsettled at Leicester following failed moves last season is now undergoing medicals at City.

Will it be France; Belgium; England or Croatia?

18 of the 20 World Cups of all-time have gone to nations that aren't these four - have we ever seen such an open contest?

Out of the 60 football games played in this World Cup, the football governing body FIFA named hosts Russian Federation as the best defending team so far.

The French players danced on the field after the final whistle and shook the hand of Thierry Henry, who helped Les Bleus win the World Cup in 1998 and is now Belgium's assistant coach.

"The way we've been received here has been fantastic", Southgate said at a pre-match press conference at Luzhniki Stadium.

"Two years ago, I remember what happened two years ago", he said.
