Nigerian descent Dele Alli on bringing the nation together

Gary Lineker heads the ball against West Germany in the 1990 World Cup semi-final

Didier Deschamps' side will now face the victor of Wednesday's tie between England and Croatia in Moscow.

That being said, Croatia has never made it to a World Cup final, so it's equally hungry to make history.

"I'd love to have been there to see it live, but I couldn't afford to go to Russia: It would be a dream to see my son play in the World Cup". "I don't have the words".

France coach Didier Deschamps fell into Umtiti's arms after the final whistle. "But it was Europe which won, and it would be amusing if we were to beat the English", said 45-year-old Francois Garnier who watched the game near the Eiffel Tower.

Russia's president Vladimir Putin called Macron to congratulate him on France's victory.

"We are a hungry squad, we want to keep achieving and improving together. We have seen the reactions back home and it's been unbelievable, so we will hopefully give them many more great moments".

Israeli military says it shot down a Syrian drone
The Israeli military said on Wednesday that it had shot down a drone from Syria that had entered its airspace. Earlier on Wednesday, the Israeli army said the downed drone may have been on an intelligence mission.

Paul Pogba dedicated France's World Cup semi-final win against Belgium to the 12 boys who survived a harrowing ordeal trapped underground in Thailand.

"It was exceptional", Deschamps said in a pitch-side interview. "As players, we know that sometimes you can have games where your control isn't as good as it should be or your decision making isn't as sharp - and I felt like it was one of those games", he said.

Crawford spoke about the influence manager, Gareth Southgate has had on this group of players, adding: "After the 1990 and 96 tournaments, we all felt a bit flat because Bobby Robson and Terry Venables left their post once it was over".

"Forty-nine days together, it is a lot of things, hard things, the group stage, it is the merit of everyone. I think the Belgian team is the most exhaustive team in all aspects of the game during this tournament - they are strong everywhere", Lloris told reporters at a pre-match press conference.

"A lot of pride", said the defender.

"We did what the coach asked of us, we were competitive in every aspect of the match, and we finally scored from a set piece. But we also hurt them".
