Misfiring Olivier Giroud making unwanted World Cup history for France

England world cup

France star Paul Pogba has dedicated his team's World Cup semi-final win over Belgium to the group of 12 Thai youngsters who were rescued from a cave after being trapped for more than two weeks.

Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have ripped into Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud after his France performance at the World Cup.

Pogba played an instrumental role for France in last night's 1-0 win, man-marking Manchester United team-mate Marouane Fellaini to combat his aerial threat. The second semi will take place in Moscow's Luzhniki - also the venue for the final - on Wednesday evening.

"I think Pogba today showed why he went for so much money", Ferdinand said on BBC Sport's Match of the Day. "They are young, but there is character, and mentality - it was tough for them against this Belgium side".

The Spanish champions invited the team to play in their worldwide academy tournament next year as well as watch a first-team game at the Nou Camp, while the Red Devils said they would love to "welcome the team from Wild Boars Football Club and their rescuers to Old Trafford this coming season".

Umtiti was also looking to exorcise the ghosts of Euro 2016. We had the chance to win the final of the Euros, but we missed a wonderful thing and we must not let this chance pass. "I hope it's going to be different this time, I hope we will able to bring the World Cup back to France".

Federation Internationale de Football Association boss Gianni Infantino had also invited the boys to attend Sunday's World Cup final, although it is unlikely to happen as "due to medical reasons, the boys will not be in a position to travel to Moscow".

"I am perfectly ready and fit and I can say the same for my team-mates".

"We had to take advantage a bit more in the counter-attacks, but congratulations to my players and my staff". We will give this final match everything. I can't talk to them about players from 20 years ago, even from 10 years ago.

Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris made another excellent save to help his team to victory and he called reaching the final "crazy". "We were all happy, all hugging", Mbappe said. "It was an important step and we hope to be celebrating on Sunday - it is fantastic". "We worked hard. I scored but we delivered a good match and I'm very proud of everyone. The pressure of a World Cup, can they handle it?", Neville told ITV.
