Robert Kidd, Forbes: "I backed Brazil to get the better of Belgium in the quarter-final and won't make the mistake of underestimating the Red Devils again". This means that the club will have at least one representative in the 2018 FIFA World Cup final.

Once in front, France had even more space to exploit Mbappe's pace, but it was a majestic piece of skill that almost created a second with a backheel that again freed Giroud only for Mousa Dembele to block.

"Vive la France! Vive la Republique!"

Henry, France's all-time top scorer, and second-most-capped player after Lilian Thuram, is trying to help Martinez mastermind a win over his own nation. We can be very happy and lucky that we can have the team what we have.

Eden Hazard, Romelu Lukaku and Kevin De Bruyne make up a potent three-man attack.

Two of the most gifted attacking teams around produced a spectacle that would've been worthy of any final, a thrilling, back-and-forth affair throughout despite a cagey and tension-filled first half.

Belgium was left Tuesday still clinging to the elusive ambition of reaching a first World Cup final.

At the final whistle, the France bench erupted onto the field and the players broke into dance. "We weren't in control two years ago against Argentina". From a corner, the defender beat Belgium's Marouane Fellaini to the ball and expertly angled it into the back of the net with the side of his head for what would be the game's only goal.

Deschamps now has the chance to become the third person to win the World Cup as a player and a coach, after Germany great Franz Beckenbauer and Brazil's Mario Zagallo.

Deschamps, coach at Euro 2016 and captain of the 1998 World Cup winners, suggested as much.

'I would not say that the team in front was better than us, ' he told BeIN Sport, via Eurosport.

At 19, Mbappe wasn't even born when France won the World Cup for the first and only time with a squad that is just as diverse as the one Deschamps is leading 20 years later.

"You don't run you don't spend any of your energetic sources, you do it in a relaxed way, you do it as part of your recovering session and you go for the set pieces and you develop the set pieces and you become really risky on that then that can be in this case happen in the space between of Witsel and Fellaini".

One lovely trick in the 57th minute left little doubt about whose night it was as Mbappe played in teammate Olivier Giroud with the kind of pass that you only ever see in video games from the Federation Internationale de Football Association franchise.

Along with the French and Gabonese presidents and the king and queen of Belgium, there was rock "n" roll royalty watching the game. "It was hard against a very good Belgium team".

Mick Jagger was one of the many famous faces in the stands at St. Petersburg Stadium.

France and Belgium will meet in the 2018 FIFA World Cup semifinals later today in St. Petersburg, Russia, pitting the neighboring countries (the game is being billed as "La Fête des Voisins", or The Neighbors' Party) against each other for a chance to play for the title Sunday against the victor of Wednesday's England-Croatia matchup.
