France beat Belgium 1-0 to reach World Cup final

Samuel Umtiti’s 51st-minute header sent an impressive France into the World Cup final with a 1-0 win over Belgium in an absorbing first semi-final. From a Belgium corner, Toby Alderweireld tested goalkeeper Hugo Lloris with a smart shot on the turn but as the half progressed France began to create more. At the other end Kylian Mbappe set up Benjamin Pavard whose low shot was kept out by the outstretched leg of Belgian goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois. It was a fascinating first half and all that was missing was a goal but one came soon after the break. From Griezmann’s corner, Umtiti beat Marouane Fellaini at the near post and powered a header home to put France ahead.
