Ironic twist to French fears in semi-final win, says Hugo Lloris

Harry Kane England 2018

He's broken out over the last 12 months, especially at the World Cup.

Rachel Williams, Store Manager at M&S Shrewsbury said: "With England making it through to the semi-finals of the World Cup, there's been an unbelievable atmosphere in the town".

This afternoon, we've got France taking on Belgium.

Mr Short, from Bourneville, Birmingham, said: 'I have watched all of England's games during the World Cup and wanted to show my support in the only way I can.

England takes on Croatia on Wednesday in the second World Cup semifinal, with the victor advancing to Sunday's big game against France.


"Two years ago, I remember what happened two years ago", he said. With 60 minutes of extra time and two penalty-kick shootouts, it's as if Croatia has played an entire extra match. Zidane was sent off in what was his final match.

The Croatia centre-back took a sly dig at Harry Kane, while the furore was escalating earlier this year as the Tottenham star claimed a dubious goal which took him closer to Liverpool star Mohamed Salah's tally in the Premier League golden boot race. Antoine Griezmann curled in the ball from the right and Umtiti got in front of the tall Belgium midfielder Marouane Fellaini to knock in his header at the near post.

"Shortly after the semifinal game between teams of France and Belgium, Russian President Vladimir Putin made a phone call to French President Emmanuel Macron, who was present at the game".

Out of the 60 football games played in this World Cup, the football governing body FIFA named hosts Russian Federation as the best defending team so far. Benjamin Pavard and Raphael Varane scored in previous matches.

Federation Internationale de Football Association awards the titles for the tournament's top scorer, best player, best goalkeeper, most disciplined team and best young footballer after the final. As France captain, Deschamps won soccer's most prized trophy in 1998.
