Paul Pogba expresses his delight after reaching the World Cup final

English fans cheering for England

"France are used to these big games but we coped with that side really well". We'll see if it can get even better this afternoon.

Les Bleus are headed to the World Cup final.

Mbappe appeared unsafe throughout, creating six scoring chances for his side, who will wait the winners of Wednesday's other semi between England and Croatia. "We worked hard. I scored but we delivered a good match and I'm very proud of everyone. We will do everything it takes to ensure we are on the right side this time, and not repeat what happened two years ago".

Belgium will play the loser of England v Croatia in Saturday's third/fourth place play-off.

Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti is full of praise for France teammate Paul Pogba.

After a diligent and hardworking performance was pivotal to France's victory over Belgium in the World Cup semi-final, Pogba dedicated the victory to the 12 boys who were pulled out of a cave in Thailand after they were trapped for 12 long days.

Papa John's founder resigns as chairman after apologizing for racial slur
Papa John's 2017 annual report records total revenues for the year of $1.78 billion, with a net income of nearly $103 million. Papa John's International, Inc. announced Schnatter has resigned as chairman in a statement late Wednesday night.

Mbappe's brilliant backheel, following a give-and-go involving Lucas Hernandez and Blaise Matuidi, was one of several plays that had Belgium's defense in a tizzy all night.

"We're going to the final, we're going to the final", scores chanted in one central Paris bar before breaking out into an impromptu rendition of the La Marseillaise national anthem.

Mbappe made the statement as he apologised to the Belgian team for any offence he might have committed against them during the France-Belgium encounter on Tuesday that netted 1-0 in favour of France.

Deschamps himself was mobbed by members of his coaching team.

They will contest Sunday's World Cup final at Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow against the victor of Croatia-England. The victor will challenge France in Sunday's final.
