Belgian soccer fans celebrate their team's World Cup victory against Japan in Jette a Brussels municipality on July 2

Deschamps, who captained France as they won the 1998 World Cup on home soil, hailed the character of his young team and credited his players' effort at the back.

They will now face Croatia or England in Sunday's showdown and are likely to be heavy favourites regardless going into that match.

In fact, Giroud has failed to even get any of his 13 shots on target thus far - the most off-target shots a player has had at a World Cup since 1966.

To be fair to Neville he has been gushing over England's performances in Russian Federation, so he will be quite happy to have been proved wrong by wing back Trippier, centre-back Maguire and goalkeeper Pickford, who have all been vast so far for the their Country.

Belgium's best global performances have been European Championship runners-up in 1980 and now two World Cup semi-finals, the first of which was in 1986.

They beat Belgium on Tuesday night by a single Samuel Umtiti / Marouane Fellaini goal.

And so, at that stage of the World Cup where every day without a match feels inexorably pointless - we awake with a spring in our step, and hope in our heart, because football, dear reader, is back once more.

The Spanish champions invited the team to play in their global 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". The victor will challenge France in Sunday's final. "It was not easy, but we went and got it - now, there is one match left, 90 minutes".

"I am perfectly ready and fit and I can say the same for my team-mates. It may repeat itself once, maybe never".

Olivier Giroud, who is still without a goal in Russian Federation, revelled in his childhood dream of reaching a World Cup final and hopes to emulate 1998 hero Zinedine Zidane.

It was a painful defeat for Belgium, foiled at the semi-final for the second time in their history, as the clock ticks on their so-called "golden generation" of players.

A World Cup champion will be crowned on Sunday.
