France have defeated Belgium 1-0 to reach the final of the World Cup in Russia as Samuel Umtiti’s 51st minute header was enough for Didier Deschamps men to get the victory.

This game saw four Chelsea players go up against each other as Thibaut Courtois and Eden Hazard were up against Olivier Giroud and N’Golo Kante, but it was Giroud and Kante who ended up as winners on the night.

Hazard and Courtois have been good in the World Cup but lost to a better French team. They played the entire game, while Michy Batshuayi was a late substitute. For France, Kante and Giroud both started the game, and Giroud who has had a good tournament so far was taken off late in the game.

France are now through to the final and will meet the winner between England and Croatia.

For Kante and Giroud, a World Cup winner’s medal awaits them in Moscow on June 15.
