World Cup Predictions Who Will Face Off in the World Cup Finals?More

"This team is nowhere near the level they´re going to be capable of, partly because of their age and partly because over the next few years, with us and with their clubs, they´re going to have more and more big-match experiences".

Sunday French paper Le Journal du Dimanche also devoted several pages to the friendship and rivalry between the two countries and attached an excerpt from an Asterix comic book showing a dispute between Belgian and Gallic chieftains.

"I want to win the World Cup - the Ballon d'Or is not my problem".

Tintin and Asterix have always been rivals in the world of the comic strips for both are popular for their entertainment and art.

The victor will play the victor of England-Croatia in the World Cup Final this weekend.

While Giroud also stated that he has massive respect for Henry, who collected 123 caps for France and won the 1998 World Cup, the Chelsea attacker would like to get one over on the Arsenal legend in the Saint Petersburg Stadium.

Pogba and France will advance to the World Cup Final on Sunday, where it'll take on the victor of Croatia vs. The England women's side are now in the qualifying stages for the 2019 Women's World Cup in France .

France will face either England or Croatia in Sunday's final. Right back Sime Vrsaljko limped off during extra time but Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic has described the injury as a "niggle".

"We wanted to reach this final, and now we have made it", he told TF1. The first of the two semifinal matches are set to be played.

"I am perfectly ready and fit and I can say the same for my team-mates". "It was not easy, but we went and got it - now, there is one match left, 90 minutes". That evenness is why France is the team to beat in the mind of Jeffrey Marcus, publisher of the World Cup newsletter "The Banter".

Pogba delivered another excellent performance in the 1-0 semi-final win over Belgium on Tuesday evening, and Wenger praised the midfielder's display.

But if there is any consolation, it will be that many will return to try again at the Euro 2020 tournament where, should they qualify comfortably, Belgium will be among the favourites.

"I was 18 years old in 1998, it was one of the most attractive nights of my life".
