Samuel Umtiti scored the lone goal of the match as France beat Belgium 1-0 in the first semifinal of the FIFA World Cup here on Tuesday night.
With this, Didier Deschamps’ men remained on course for their first global title since 1998, when France last won the World Cup. However, Belgium had chances throughout the game, but it was not Romelu Lukaku’s day as he hardly got hold of the ball.
France head to the final on Sunday, while Belgium will play the loser of the second semifinal between England and Croatia on Saturday. Umtiti marked the occasion with a special dance move as French players jumped over him to celebrate on the sidelines of the Belgium box.
