World Cup ace Kylian Mbappe 'couldn't care less' about the Ballon d'Or

Les Blues will now play in the World Cup final for the third time in 20 yearsMore

"I feel ill", said Denis Backaert, 34, after watching France prevail 1-0 in the tightest of semi-final encounters between two sharp sides in St. Petersburg. "I think we coped with him well". We could easily have come to this stage and frozen. "It will be a World Cup final, a great match, difficult".

But it is thought that Mbappe or England captain Harry Kane could yet rival Ronaldo by excelling in Sunday's World Cup final. I can improve and get better... After winning Group D, Croatia beat Denmark and Russian Federation in penalty kicks to get to this point, while England knocked out Colombia in the round of 16 in penalties before taking down Sweden in the quarterfinals.

Belgium manager Roberto Martinez has played down the notion of a missed chance for the "golden generation" after their FIFA World Cup semi-final defeat to France.

"There is still one more step to take, but we are proud of what we have done".

The French beat Germany in the Euro 2016 semi-final setting up an encounter in Paris against then-underdogs Portugal, who stunned them 1-0 in extra time to win the continental title. I wouldn't say that I'm young, but I'm not old - well, not yet.


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.

"Paul has grown in the team, he is a very expressive player".

"Finals have to be won".

It's been 20 years since France have won it all in the World Cup, and they are on the verge of ending that long drought this year following their 1-0 win on Tuesday over fellow European powerhouse Belgium in the semifinals of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation. "You have to congratulate France and wish them well for the final".
