Mbappe: Even in my wildest dreams I didn't imagine this

"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.

"It is unbelievable. It is the dream of dreams, the dream of the future, everything", Mbappe said.

Goalkeeper Danijel Subasic had a hamstring injury during extra time against Russian Federation but remained in the match and played his role when the game went to penalties.

It became an instant hit and was belted out in pubs, night clubs, on the streets and in football stadiums throughout the tournament as an England team featuring centre back Southgate reached the semi-finals.

"We're disappointed, we wanted to get into the final, we need to put this behind us and look forward to the next game".

England did not have an overly hard route to the semi-final but they have overcome every obstacle they faced with some solid performances.

And spirits were high in central Moscow as fans sang and cheered late into the night on the eve of the biggest game in almost three decades - a first World Cup semi-final since Italia 90.

Sir Bobby, who launched the Foundation in 2008, described his charity as his "last and greatest team". By no means are they assured a spot, as world No. 7 France, who oddsmakers are favouring, stand in their way.

"Two years ago, I remember what happened two years ago", he said in reference to his team's 1-0 defeat to Portugal in Paris in the Euro final.

Belgium reached the quarterfinals at the 2014 World Cup and the European Championship in 2016 but has yet to fulfill its lofty expectations. It was like an early final.

"We faced a really good Belgium team, but we hurt them and we could have hurt them more if we had been more precise, but we were prepared for anything and we showed once again everything that is positive", commented Deschamps.

Neither Belgium nor Croatia has ever won the tournament. They have performed to a consistently high level. We're pleased with the intelligence and style of our play. His excellent performances are another example of Southgate's positive coaching. Football can unite. We can feel the energy and support from home, and that's a privilege'.
