Deschamps hails Paul Pogba's performance in France semi-final win

Romelu Lukaku of Belgium

"It's not the same feeling - we know we still have one game to win".

England's defender Kyle Walker reacts after the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup semi-final football match between Croatia and England at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on July 11, 2018.br / Croatia will play France in the World Cup final after they beat England 2-1 in extra-time on Wednesday thanks to a Mario Mandzukic goal in the second period of extra-time. "I think he had a very good game", he said on Russian TV.

Umtiti was also looking to exorcise the ghosts of Euro 2016.

"France were in the final of the Euros - nearly they are used to being in these sort of big games, and I thought we coped with that side really well, so I don't want any of my players to be frustrated, disappointed".

"He's a very loved person in France, on the pitch he shows he's a big guy, and I want him to score a goal in the final on Sunday".

The Real Madrid midfielder, touted as a Golden Ball contender, is likely playing at his last World Cup, and Dalic is delighted to see him at his best.

"It is a childhood dream - we are proud to share it with all of our friends, and the French people", the Chelsea man told TF1. "We are not. There is still a chance to exhaust ourselves".

Of course it helps that he has N'Golo Kante at his side.

Prime Minister Charles Michel tweeted: "Bravo, Red Devils, for your performances and for having thrilled us all the way to the semi-finals". We will give this final match everything. I can't talk to them about players from 20 years ago, even from 10 years ago.

"It is handsome, it is good", he said. "But we have our hearts, our pride and our players and that is what is really important to us".

"We know their set-pieces are unsafe, they have scored seven times from them, but we have no reason to be nervous, we are relieved of any pressure and are here to enjoy ourselves", he said.

"So we´re excited about the future but we also want to make the most of the opportunity we have tomorrow".

Pogba took to Twitter shortly after France beat Belgium to advance to the World Cup final.

"Rami's moustache brought good luck", he said.

"It's been great to get to this stage but we wanted to go on and win it". "I'll be 29 in four years; who knows if other young players will come through to take my place?" It is in the knockout rounds that I hit my stride, though, and I hope to continue like this.

Paris has erupted in firecrackers, flares and shouts and tears of joy after France advanced to the World Cup final.
