France vs Belgium: A 'Final Quality' Match

When is Belgium vs France? TV channel time and odds for World Cup semi-final

Just three matches remain in the 2018 World Cup, the first of which is scheduled to kick off on Tuesday when France is scheduled to take on Belgium in a highly anticipated semifinal matchup. The Red Devils and Les Bleus are competing for a spot in the World Cup final, and both teams are bringing world-class attacking talent to the match.

Samuel Umtiti's 51st-minute header sent an impressive France into the World Cup final with a 1-0 win over Belgium in an absorbing first semi-final on Tuesday.

France have been the best team at this World Cup - and they proved it here. Here is a quick reminder of the team news before we get started. The right-back is doubtful for the match but Benjamin Pavard has stepped up at this tournament and put in great shifts and even scoring one of the greatest goals in the tournament against Argentina. "I think his heart will be split tomorrow because before anything he remains French". Two years after losing the Euro 2016 at home, France is now one win away from its second World Cup title as it seeks redemption at the highest of stages. "Prediction: France 2-1 Belgium".

France also boasts a talented squad.

Matuidi, who was suspended for the 2-0 quarterfinal win over Uruguay last Friday, comes into midfield to replace Corentin Tolisso.

The match opened up towards the hour-mark as France were finding big spaces left behind by Belgium who were eager to find the equaliser.

He has a specific job on the Belgium coaching staff, to coach the attacking players and counsel on strategies; it is part-time role, outside his broadcasting work in English television, and his rank in the Belgian staff hierarchy is well beneath that of manager Roberto Martinez.

"He gives his precise and important advice to the Belgians".

Did you know? When French goalscorer Samuel Umtiti first moved to Barcelona, his mother went with him and always made him finish his homework before he could go to training.

"I feel very proud for my group".

Oddsmakers widely consider France the favorite in the matchup. As Newsweek previously wrote, it has been a tournament chock-full of favorites going down and underdogs rising.

His predecessor, Marc Wilmots, recalled putting De Bruyne up against Serbia defender Aleksandar Kolarov in a qualifier for the 2014 World Cup.

The victor Tuesday will earn a spot in the final, and will be the favourite to win the title.

Belgium, who have never won a major tournament, impressed in Russian Federation - knocking out Brazil in the quarter-finals - but fell short against a solid French side.

It is the first time since 1998 that the nation of just over four million people have reached this stage of the competition, after they eliminated Russian Federation in a penalty shootout at the weekend.
