France beat Belgium 1-0 to reach final

When is Belgium vs France? TV channel time and odds for World Cup semi-final

France and Belgium are set to square off Tuesday with the victor reaching the 2018 World Cup final game.

Roberto Martinez's surprise 4-3-3 was just insane enough to confuse the Brazil defence throughout the first half of their quarter-final, which puts them in a strong position to do something similar on the counter-attack against France - particularly through the middle.

Adding fuel to the rivalry flames is the fact that former French national team legend Thierry Henry serves as an assistant to Belgium's Martinez-meaning the French hero will likely be doing his best to make sure his home country loses.

Belgium took early control of midfield with France content to sit deep and eliminate the threat of counter-attacks Hazard and De Bruyne. They are trained by Didier Deschamps, who won the Cup in 1998 as a player and is now trying to do the same as a coach.

Striker Romelu Lukaku has four goals and an assist in his four games and has drawn praise for his unselfish play.

When do Belgium and France play? No, I play at City. Dubbed by many as the two best teams left in the competition, we could be in line for a thrilling encounter between two attacking-minded teams.

Thousands of delirious French fans celebrated the victory on the Champs-Elysees avenue and at a giant screen viewing area at the town hall in Paris, letting off smoke flares and waving flags.

Mourinho also praised the young French side consisting of Raphael Varane, Antoine Griezmann and Theo Hernandez, that had two seasons ago reached the Euro 2016 final, and expressed belief that the team would reach many more final matches.

Red is seen telling interrogators just how strong her girls are, stating that they have "iron wills and f*cking nothing to lose". It's jarring to see these women that we've followed for so many seasons in a new prison, immediately evoking a feeling of dread.

The defeat is painful for Belgium, foiled at the semi-final for the second time in their history, as the clock ticks on their so-called "golden generation".

Martinez bemoaned the goal his team conceded from a corner.

"Because of the seven years I spent in France I feel 99 percent Belgian and one percent French, but the idea of taking French nationality never crossed my mind" Hazard once said when asked about the possibility.

"It's essential to have a player like Kevin, that he can play different roles", Martinez said.

Following the victory, France will play the victor of tomorrow's game between England and Croatia.

Paris Saint-Germain forward Mbappe, though, has his full focus on Russian Federation 2018 as France look to go one step further than their loss in the final of Euro 2016 against Portugal.

Both squads have earned their way to the semifinals, with a stellar Belgium knocking off the tournament favorite, Brazil, in its quarterfinal match. "We want to finish on a high".

There are concerns that fatigue could be a factor for Zlatko Dalic's side, given they were forced to come through 120 minutes and penalties against both the hosts and Denmark in the last two rounds. From the beginning I have said that everybody had to keep calm. We know there are going to be hard moments, and we'll have to be ready to suffer.
