Vertonghen 'gutted' after semi-final loss

John Stones has been England's third-biggest attacking threat at this World Cup, being on the end of 1.45 xG, and scoring twice from the chances he has had.

Paul Pogba dedicated France's World Cup semi-final win against Belgium to the 12 boys who survived a harrowing ordeal trapped underground in Thailand.

"I'm not saying that I'm not proud of what we did all together 20 years ago".

The Three Lions once again scored from a dead ball situation, their eighth set-piece goal of this World Cup.

They're young, they're brash and they're collectively worth a billion dollars. "This game belonged to the players". However, this is not like Euro 2016. We were there [in 2016], we were close to winning the title and we missed.

"When you have such a solid foundation, you have the basics and clear understanding of what we want to do and achieve, it's not a surprise that it's going well for us".

Dier's Tottenham team-mate Dele Alli is also appreciative of her efforts.

"We need to regroup and recover and see the opportunity".

"It is an unforgettable moment - I remember Zizou at the Arc de Triomphe, and I hope that we will have our chance".

France coach Didier Deschamps fell into Umtiti's arms after the final whistle.

N'Golo Kante spoke of his "immense joy" and "pride" at the feat and promised to give everything in the Moscow final. We were lucky enough to be in that final and we missed out on something handsome. She's done a lot of stuff with us, takes a lot of meetings.

"I am here with them today to write a new page in history, the most lovely page".

Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris made another excellent save to help his team to victory and he called reaching the final "crazy". It's probably why they are so good at sport and we aren't.

However, they will take on a Red Devils squad that is widely regarded as one of the most talented they have ever possessed.

It was February 2015 and Alli scored in a 2-1 defeat at Valley Parade, but neither that, nor the appearance of England No 1 Jordan Pickford in goal for the Bantams, is lodged in his mind. We worked hard defensively.

However, that did not stop hundreds of thousands of Les Bleus fans wildly celebrating the team reaching the 2018 showpiece in Russian Federation with a 1-0 victory over Belgium.

It's going to be a wild party in France tonight.
