One Tactical Change For Each Semi-Finalist — FIFA WC

France coach Didier Deschamps celebrates after the match against Uruguay at the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium in Russia July 6, 2018.

Two of the World Cup's most potent attacking teams produced just one goal but a bounty of unforgettable images when France and Belgium met in Tuesday's semifinal in St. Petersburg.

The French drew one group game (against Denmark), but their World Cup has been one of constant progression built around goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, central defenders Raphael Varane and Samuel Umtiti and midfielders, N'golo Kante and Paul Pogba.

Their floating positions with De Bruyne in the middle and the Manchester United and Chelsea forwards mainly wider caused Brazil back four multiple problems.

Soon we will know what is the situation with our players that had some minor problems with injuries in the game on Saturday night.

Against Belgium, Deschamps can afford to play an out and out winger because Belgian wing-back Thomas Meunier is suspended.

"Belgium didn't arrive here by chance". They started a bit slow but have been upping their game as the tournament is progressing. We saw them against Argentina perform the way they did and it was a different type of performance tonight.

"Their team is geared forward".

In a critical error, Mercedes chose to keep race leader Lewis Hamilton out and their victory hopes quickly unravelled from there. Verstappen believes his next best chance of a win will come in Hungary, rather than at Silverstone next time out.

"Kevin De Bruyne is a modern playmaker in the fact that he goes even quicker than what you can see".

Courtois boasts two clean sheets from five matches in Russian Federation while Lloris has two in four. "That was a precautionary measure", the coach added. On paper, France, the 1998 champions, is expected to triumph over the Belgium, but many fans here are saying that an upset could happen, going by the rising profiles of a talent-laden Belgian side.

Just like players are free to choose which country or club they want to play for provided they abide by the law, similarly former players can not be judged by which country they decide to coach. "It's an advantage on both sides, but we will seize every opportunity to reach the final".
