Paris to install giant screen at Eiffel Tower for World Cup final

Paris to install giant screen at Eiffel Tower for World Cup final

France beat Belgium 1-0 in the World Cup semifinals on Tuesday in St. Petersburg, Russia, advancing to their first World Cup Final since 2006.

Giroud the weakest point for France, Mbappe's pace will scare the daylights out of most defences - not sure how Maguire and Stones would cope with him running at them. Hundreds of thousands of fans had poured on to the Champs Elysees and around the Arc de Triomphe as bars, cafes and restaurants enjoyed a bumper evening of revelry after the World Cup equivalent of a local derby between the neighbouring rivals.

The victor will play the victor of England-Croatia in the World Cup Final this weekend. "It's been a few years since we got this opportunity". "We worked hard. I scored but we delivered a good match and I'm very proud of everyone".

Martinez, who has signed a new contract with the Belgian federation, has backed his team to bounce back from the semi-final loss to France and put up a strong performance in the third place play-off match on Saturday.

That means they will not be accepting Fifa's invitation to Sunday's World Cup final in Russian Federation.


France booked their spot in the final after a narrow 1-0 win over Belgium, as defender Samuel Umtiti headed in the vital goal.

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. I wouldn't say that I'm young but I'm not old, yet, and we are going through nice things and want to finish it.

Deschamps himself was mobbed by members of his coaching team.

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. The victor will challenge France in Sunday's final.
