Belgium politicians and media thank national team

Troublesome trio France will have to contain Eden Hazard Romelu Lukaku and Kevin de Bruyne if they’re to have any hope against Belgium

Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois said his team's defeat by France in the World Cup semi-finals today was a "shame for football", criticising Didier Deschamps's side for a defensive style of play.

Martinez claimed a lot of the credit for the win as his tactical changes worked to perfection, including moving Kevin De Bruyne into a more advanced role.

Fred and his Brazil team looked the best outfit by far, dominating games and moving the ball fluidly, their strength in depth adding to the menace they bring.

Whatever the outcome of England's semi-final, the team will remain in Russian Federation at the very least until next Saturday when the Third Place Play-Off is contested - the final will be played on Sunday 15 July.

Martinez, however, will be hoping his man Lukaku continues to have such a huge impact at the World Cup as the attacker is clearly in top form. But there might be split loyalties for Hazard after he admitted he followed Les Bleus after their victory in the competition in 1998.

Brazil haven't won the World Cup since 2002 which is their second longest run without winning it.

Lukaku heads in the ball during the ongoing 2018 FIFA World Cup at Russian Federation.

"He's a living legend of French football and we have a lot of respect for him".

Two of the World Cup's outstanding players will now go head-to-head in St Petersburg, with De Bruyne aware of the threat that Mbappe will pose.

Recently, Belgium captain Eden Hazard praised him as one of the world's best strikers.

The two have struck an extremely close relationship that is proving fruitful on the pitch.
