France secured a place in the World Cup final after Samuel Umtiti's header saw off Belgium last night. France have marched on to the World Cup final, and Pogba has been one of the best performers for Didier Deschamps' side.

Pogba has regularly come in for criticism for failing to produce consistent performances for Manchester United since his big-money move back to Old Trafford back in the summer of 2016.

Whether he plays an attacking role or more defensively, De Bruyne is instrumental in directing Belgium with his awareness and swift passes. "We are happy, but there is still one more step to take".

It prompted a glowing assessment from Mourinho, who added: "It's a great achievement for a country where the league is a minor league and the majority of the players don't player in Croatia but overseas". We were lucky enough to be in that final and we missed out on something lovely. The soccer team consisted of 12 young boys. The 76-year-old - who scored a hat trick in the final at Wembley against West Germany - told the Sun newspaper that Southgate had fostered an impressive spirit of togetherness in the squad. "The game was very close, very tight and it was going to be decided by a little bit of luck in front of goal", said the Spaniard. They were quite tough and obviously Mbappe has great quality. Hurst said Ramsey rightly gets most of the credit for creating a "tremendous team spirit". "Gareth is doing exactly the same".

It might even end with an England-France final.

Perhaps because of his club issues, he also struggled to make an impact in France's opening game in the World Cup, even prompting the call from the French fans and media for him to be dropped, which is probably what had him mulling over his global future.

Phil Jones, Jesse Lingard, Marcus Rashford and Ashley Young are all going to give it their all to make sure the Three Lions lift their first World Cup since 1966.
