The world cup keeps getting so exciting and the game has showed us that its beyond experience and expertise, we can’t nullify the place of hard work and hard work sometimes disqualifies talent.
France has our hearts as they officially made their way to the finals in the 2018 world cup, they advanced to the World Cup final with a 1-0 victory over Belgium.
The goal was scored by Samuel Umtiti at the 51th minute,he dropped his marker Toby Alderweireld, outjumped the very tall Marouane Fellaini and headed home an Antoine Griezmann corner. The ball was in the net before Belgium keeper Thiebaut Courtois could do anything about it. It was such a wonderful goal!
An unbelievably disciplined defensive showing from the French team left a talented, attacking Belgium team with few options. Two years after losing the Euro 2016 at home, France is now one win away from its second World Cup title as it seeks redemption at the highest of stages.
The lone goal was enough. It was a deserved win by Didier Deschamp’s team, which had 19 shots, 10 more than Belgium. Hugo Lloris made some incredible saves, but as did Belgium’s Thibaut Courtois, who kept his team in it late.
France now flies into Sunday’s final on a hot streak, having defeated Argentina, Uruguay and Belgium in the knockout stage.
The team will take the winner of England or Croatia in the final, with those two playing today. The loser faces Belgium in Saturday’s third-place match.
This is the third time France has reached the final in the last six World Cups.
