France faces Belgium on Tuesday for a place in Sunday's World Cup final while England take on Croatia in the other semi-final on Wednesday.

The last time Les Bleus were in the last four at a World Cup, a penalty from captain Zidane gave France a 1-0 win over Portugal in Germany 2006.

Thoughts of history and playing greats of the past are never far away at World Cup semi-finals.

Their Semi Final opponents and neighbours France have Emmanuel Macron as president - a former Socialist Party minister who launched his own party, which he describes politically as "neither left nor right".

"So we should not be surprised that Croatia are in the semi-finals given the quality of the players". The Croatian national football team is exhausted after the penalty shootout win over Russian Federation, but is satisfied with advancing to the semifinals stage of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, Croatia's midfielder Ivan Rakitic said.

"We can see the fans enjoying it here and back home and so we have just got to try and keep it going".

At the beginning of working together with the lads and trying to sell them the vision of what's possible, what we're looking to achieve in the long-term.

"The results were below the level and quality of our players". Now, I predict that the victor of the France-Belgium semi-final fixture will go on to win the final.

Having played his club football in Belgium for almost four years (1985-1989), Bwalya can not help but marvel at the transformation of the country's football.

Southgate is expected to name the same side that started the 2-0 quarter-final win over Sweden as he has a fully fit 23-man squad.

'This acquisition would be a fantastic addition to our holdings and would come at an exciting time for us while we build the London Collection as we plan the New Museum in West Smithfield'.

Its 44 forces across England and Wales recorded 387 incidents and made more than 70 arrests over the weekend for mostly alcohol-related disorder.
