The World Cup is set to get back underway this afternoon.

After ousting Brazil in the semis, Belgium go into their match up against France high in confidence. Deschamps may have bitter memories from that Euro final in front of a home crowd, but he is now on the verge of joining an elite club of coaches who have also won the World Cup as players.

Belgium's "golden generation" finally delivered a big scalp on the worldwide stage in a thrilling 2-1 win over Brazil in the last eight to erase memories of disappointing quarter-final exits to Argentina four years ago and at Euro 2016 to surprise package Wales. They started a bit slow but have been upping their game as the tournament is progressing.

Martinez claimed a lot of the credit for the win as his tactical changes worked to perfection, including moving Kevin De Bruyne into a more advanced role.

Belgium's forwards are receiving similarly sage words from France great Thierry Henry, who is a key member of Roberto Martinez's backroom team.

This summer's edition of Les Bleus is composed of players who know France as a country that can win. Pele hit a hat-trick against France in the semi-final of that tournament and is the last player under 20 to score in the final four. Asked what Macron, who had been in the stands, said, he replied: "He said he would come back for the final, to see us with the Cup". "I don't feel pressure, but I'm excited about playing in a very special match".

Eden Hazard was a lively presence on Belgium's right, dragging a shot wide and Toby Alderweireld forced a smart save from Hugo Lloris while at the other end Olivier Giroud flicked a header narrowly wide. Former German footballer and part of the 1990 World Cup winning squad, Jurgen Klinsmann, coached the USA football team between 2011 to 2016.

While the duo of Mbappe and Pogba are attracted by their expansive, aggressive play, Lukaku is in the picture for his power play.Today's semi duel is expected to live up to its a worthy its billing.
