Pogba dedicates France win to Thai cave survivors

The players today are going to be even stronger in two years' time and in four years' time, but today they are already competitive.

After an emotional appearance, Mark tells, Bobby asked: "How did Gascoigne play?"

Both custodians deserved the Man of the Match awards, for after a frenetic first-half, the score was still 0-0.

Gascoigne, visibly emotional having heard that recounting of the story for the first time, and his reaction serve as a display of how impactful Robson had been in his young life at that time.

Match-winner Samuel Umtiti is targeting World Cup glory as he attempts to erase the memory of his Euro 2016 heartache.

"It is going to be a hard moment for us to manage, but we have to do it quickly and get going". "We don't want to stop". England has been craving a top title since it won the World Cup in 1966 and has a tremendous, unforseen opportunity ahead, with the weight of its country on its shoulders.

The playmaker believes that Belgium's "golden generation" of players have benefited from the exposures overseas.




"We've played five hard games and I know they are exhausted but there can't be any excuses", Lovren explained to reporters.

"Of course, it's not the same if you play two 90min matches and two 120min matches, but I still believe we have had ample time to recover and we are professional enough to know who needs what with what kind of recovery". They have a good squad depth and know what they need to do in order to win a game. That made it back-to-back shootouts for Croatia following its narrow win over Denmark in the round of 16.

"I was here last summer for the Confederations Cup, and it was exactly the same, there were a lot of stories going into the tournament that I knew weren't going to be true, and that's proved to be the case", former England worldwide Southgate added. Fans should expect a fierce midfield contest, and can hopefully look forward to fluid, flowing play.

The other semi-final pits England (No. 12) against a beat up team from Croatia (No. 20).

"I'm not going to be too humble, either", he said.

Belgium paid the price for failing to take their chances against France but will now have to shake off their disappointment and focus on finishing third at the World Cup, coach Roberto Martinez said after his team's defeat in the semifinal.
