A Single Goal Sends France To The World Cup Final

Didier Deschamps issued a warning that France will continue to "climb mountains" after reaching the World Cup final. As long as I can help the team, it's all that matters to me.

"I don't mind", said student Alpha Omba. Belgium fans filed quietly out of the arena, while back home they drowned their sorrows in beer after their dreams of a first World Cup final were shattered by their bigger French neighbours.

"I said to my family afterwards that it was weird because I didn't feel nervous or anything like that. The boys - and their manager - are a credit to the shirt and the country, I'm extremely proud of them".

Ironically, Alli says he felt he did better with the less familiar tasks than with his usual forte, making penetrating runs and providing a threat in the box.

The likes of Jordan Henderson and Marcus Rashford opted for a more physical activity as they played a bit of basketball at their training base near Saint Petersburg.

London pub renames itself The Trump Arms ahead of presidential visit
The request as Trump is expected to meet with multiple protests during his first visit to the country since taking office. President Trump lands in London on Thursday night for a dinner in his honour at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire.

"We know there are going to be hard moments and we'll have to be ready to suffer".

After scoring against Sweden in the quarter finals on Saturday, Alli watched Tottenham team-mate Kieran Tripper net a stunning free kick after just five minutes to put Gareht Southgate's side into the lead. With Croatia or England awaiting in Sunday's final, the formula is one game away from working again.

It was a fascinating first half and all that was missing was a goal but one came soon after the break. "He wants you to try things, he wants you to express yourself and as a player that's what I've always been (about)", Alli said. It is a fantastic generation and in order to beat them we will have to play a great match. "You want to be the best person you can possibly be, thinking where you've come from".

Russia's president Vladimir Putin called Macron to congratulate him on France's victory.

Paris Saint-Germain forward Mbappe, though, has his full focus on Russian Federation 2018 as France look to go one step further than their loss in the final of Euro 2016 against Portugal.
