Deschamps hails French character after semi-final win

Deschamps hails French character after semi-final win

As neighbours France and Belgium take on each other in the first semi-final of the Fifa World Cup in St Petersburg in Russian Federation on Tuesday, July 10, the media is busy painting the rivalry as between two famous comic characters - Asterix and Tintin.

"But regardless of that, I think the football across the board has been really exciting, really entertaining, and the hosting of the tournament and the cities that have hosted it has been outstanding". "We're not the finished article", England manager Gareth Southgate, himself a novice at national level, said.

"Unfortunately our dream has been postponed, and it is very painful for all of us that after so much work and dedication on the part of each player, technical commission, and staff, there is vast pain", he wrote.

France President Emmanuel Macron was on hand for the game in St Petersburg and came down to the dressing room to celebrate with the players and staff. "Something had to change to get the results", Dalic said. "We always try to find comparisons, rightly or wrongly".

Marks & Spencer, which has been the official suit supplier to the England team since 2007, said demand for waistcoats has risen 35% thanks to what they say is "the Gareth Southgate effect".

"That's the most important thing, everyone comes together and we want to make them feel proud".

"Of course there's power left for the English", Dalic said.

Henry did everything he could to help Belgium bring down France, but ultimately the team with more goals than any in the tournament was unable to score in the semifinals. "I have responsibility for the team".

Henry, France's all-time leading goalscorer, was a member of the squads that won the 1998 World Cup on home soil and Euro 2000 alongside French boss Didier Deschamps.

"But now. I pray and I would give anything in the world that this squad eventually "confines us to history".

"That's the detail you get in the semi-final of the World Cup".
