Pogba dedicates France semi win to rescued Thai boys

Samuel Umtiti's 51st-minute header in the semifinal sent the French into the final, where they will be seeking their second win since 1998.

The boys, between ages 11 and 16, and their 26-year-old coach were rescued in stages over the last several days, with the final four boys and the coach brought out on Tuesday.

"FIFA's priority remains the health of everyone involved in the operation and we will look into finding a new opportunity to invite the boys to a Federation Internationale de Football Association event to share with them a moment of communion and celebration", a spokesman said.

Didier Deschamps' side will now face the victor of Wednesday's tie between England and Croatia in Moscow.

Israel wants to send landing craft to the Moon by year’s end

England team predicted to face Croatia in World Cup semi-finals Sun, July 8, 2018 England face Croatia in the World Cup semi-finals - but how will Gareth Southgate's men line-up? We did not forget the doubts about us at the beginning of the competition, about our ability to play together. We will enjoy ourselves a little, not for long - we must be focused for the final. We worked hard defensively. I'm proud of my players. I do not want to relive that.

Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo confirmed the move after France's victory against Belgium on Tuesday night. "We will go into this final to win it, as we have still not gotten over the final". England has been craving a top title since it won the World Cup in 1966 and has a tremendous, unforseen opportunity ahead, with the weight of its country on its shoulders.

Goal scorer Umtiti said the win had come on the back of the work of the entire team. "And in my role I've got the eyes into Euro 2020 so it's not the right moment to make an assessment (about the team's performance in World Cup) just yet". They worked in '98 and we worked today, we reached out target to get to the final.
