France boss Jacques Brunel disappointed by contentious Wales winning try

Who will qualify for the World Cup semi-finals

Ross Moriarty was sin-binned moments after coming onto the pitch as a substitute, but it was Vahaamahina's second-half red card which proved pivotal.

Lines were clearly drawn, with both Japan and South Africa knowing precisely what they had to do to reach next weekend's semifinal against Wales - this was always going to be a battle between the Boks' forwards and the Brave Blossoms' lightning backs.

"So that's why I'm saying the outcome of the match is hard to accept". We showed courage, we showed a lot of panache.

This was just the second World Cup meeting between France and Wales.

France's Sebastien Vahaamahina leaves the field after receiving a red card during the Rugby World Cup quarterfinal match at Oita Stadium on Sunday.

Vahaamahina had scored the first try of the game after five minutes.

"We're pleased. There is plenty for us to work on, but ultimately we are pleased with the result".

Japanese fans in Tokyo were visibly upset after they failed to make it to the semi-final round. "I think it was a reflex action". "In fairness to France they played exceptionally well tonight".

"The red card, I don't contest it".

And where the South Africans had been careless early on - they could have gone in at halftime three or four tries to the good - they tightened everything up in the second period to devastating effect.

"They just kept waiting for an opportunity that was going to come, a big scrum at the end of the game, fantastic by Thomas Williams and it was a one-point victory, kind of the other way but similar to 2011".

The Brave Blossoms have been capturing hearts and minds across Japan and around the world and the broadcast figures show a picture of attraction, with audiences progressively building across the pool phase. "But I want to stress the quality of our team".

"We wanted to be the best and I told them the important thing is what they do tomorrow".
