In total 60 matches has been played in the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia, and it has been without a doubt one of the best tournaments anybody can see. All teams have performed exceptionally well, alas only a few can make it to the last four. Let’s take a look at the first semi-final which will be played between Belgium and France.
Belgium’s golden generation has finally delivered at the biggest stage of them all. They have all the games they’ve played in the tournament, and are the only side to achieve that feat.
Coach Roberto Martinez has been spot on with his tactics in this tournament and would be proud that his players have gone through every single emotion, be it facing adversity or having the highest of highs, in this tournament. They also knocked out Brazil in the quarter-final, and this feat says a lot in itself.
Captain Eden Hazard has been sensational as well, and his contribution needs to be looked at how well he rallies his troops. He leads from the front and gives every ounce of energy to the cause, an inspiring trait to be seen from a skipper.
With the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Kevin De Bruyne and others, the team has performed like a unit, and it will be tall order for their opponents to beat them.
Meanwhile, France has come into their own lately after subdued performances early on in the tournament. Their performances against Argentina and Uruguay showed how clinical this team is when they want to be.
Didier Deschamps changed the formation of the team before the second game, and it took the players some time to adapt. But, this tweaking of the system has come good, as France look to be back to their normal self.
They have one of the most fearsome squads in World football with the likes of Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe, Paul Pogba, Raphael Varane and others. In fact, this team is also one of the youngest in the tournament, showcasing how athletically adept the system would have to be to make it work.
This matchup is arguably the best we will witness till now in the world cup, and it’s the one you cannot miss at all.
