France vs Belgium Preview:

The month long summer festival is coming to its end and the last stage will see two equally potentially matched teams locking horns with each other in the first semi final of the FIFA World Cup 2018.

This world cup journey couldn’t have started better for Belgium as they have already equalized with their greatest world cup campaign in the history when they reached the semi finals and lost to Argentina in 1986. But, three decades have passed ever since and the golden generation of Belgium is expected to deliver their greatest achievement in football if they can go past Les Bleus. The task at hand won’t be easy for them but they would use the confidence of knocking out the five times world champions in the quarters to get to here. Belgium will be solely dependent on their attack which has been a terrific one so far scoring bag full of goals. Belgium needs to work on their defense because the speed of teenager Kylian Mbappe could see them struggling like Argentina early in the game.

France, the world cup champions of 1998 at home would want to go for glory after missing out on the 2006 world cup because of a Zinedine Zidane head butt to an Italian player in the middle of the game. Ever since, France’s quest to reach the final and lift the trophy one more time has always been out of their league but in this world cup, things have gone great so far for them and they would want to maintain that so that they can book a spot in Moscow for the winner of the second semi final which is to be played the next day.
