France President Emmanuel Macron at World Cup semifinals

Arsenal's French striker Olivier Giroud stretches to try to reach the ball as Chelsea's Belgian goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and Chelsea's Serbian defender Branislav Ivanovic

Vermaelen has started just one of Belgium's five World Cup matches so far after only recovering from a hamstring injury just in time to travel to Russian Federation with Roberto Martinez's squad.

Forward Kylian Mbappe, one of France's best players in Russian Federation, was not at the first 15 minutes of training open to the media, but Deschamps said he had a full squad to choose from.

St. Petersburg (Russia): Although the Tour de France cycle race would normally be the focus of French and Belgian sports fans at this time of year, it's a fair bet that Tuesday's World Cup semi-final here will beat the viewing figures of the annual cycle race in the two nations in question. The victor will play the victor of England-Croatia in the World Cup Final this weekend.

North Korea talks either 'very productive' or 'deeply regrettable'
And he said progress had been made towards agreeing "the modalities" of North Korea's destruction of a missile facility. Just hours after Pompeo arrived in Tokyo , the North blasted the discussions, saying the visit had been 'regrettable '.

According to Martinez, another aspect of Belgium's emergence is the role of Thierry Henry, who will be put in the delicate position of having to plot the downfall of his former side having been appointed as assistant coach two years ago.

Belgium coach Roberto Martinez has shown that he can make changes to his system, using a 4-3-2-1 for most of the tournament, but adapting to a 4-3-3 to exploit Brazil's weaknesses down the flanks. "They played a great game against Brazil with a specific game plan", the 49-year-old Deschamps told a news conference yesterday. Pele hit a hat-trick against France in the semi-final of that tournament and is the last player under 20 to score in the final four. "We got a boost there".

France will now wait to see who they will face in Sunday's final with England taking on Croatia in Moscow on Wednesday evening.

Kremlin statement says Vladimir Putin 'proud' of Russia's World Cup 'heroes'
In the text titled "The World Cup final will include one of these teams - England, Croatia, Sweden, Russia". "We tried. But with five minutes to go before the end of extra time Mario Fernandes scored to force penalties.

"I feel very proud for my group".

Olivier Giroud claims that France teammate Hugo Lloris is a better goalkeeper than his Chelsea teammate Thibaut Courtois. "We will go into this final to win it, as we have still not gotten over the (2016) final".

Didier Deschamps' side take on Belgium in Tuesday's (July 10) St Petersburg semifinal - a game that will be graced by a raft of prime attacking and creative talents on both sides. "It's peculiar because there are many players on my team who will be facing their own club team mates".
