Dele Alli: looking for more against Croatia

Dele Alli: looking for more against Croatia

Samuel Umtiti headed in from a corner for the only goal of the game to knock Belgium out, and Martinez said that while he was pleased his team negated France's threat on the counter-attack, his players did not show their usual finesse in front of goal.

France coach Didier Deschamps admitted that his players have still not digested their defeat in the Euro 2016 final but suggested that winning this summer's World Cup might change that, after Les Bleus beat Belgium 1-0 in the semifinal on Tuesday.

You're disappointed because you lose the semi-final, and it's very hard to see the opportunity of playing another game as a positive.

The 19-year-old has also been suggested as a contender for the Ballon d'Or, having become the first teenager since Pele to score a few times in a World Cup game.

"FIFA's priority remains the health of everyone involved in the operation and we will look into finding a new opportunity to invite the boys to a Federation Internationale de Football Association event to share with them a moment of communion and celebration", a spokesman said.

"I don't mind", said student Alpha Omba.

Gareth Southgate's team play Croatia on Wednesday for the chance to meet France or Belgium in the final and Alli, who scored the second goal in the 2-0 last-eight win over Sweden, admitted he was not happy with his performance in that game.

Gareth Southgate ‘not ready for journey to end’
We still needed the win but I thought, "No, it's ridiculous". "If you look at all of our attacking patterns and the way that our front four have combined and played, he's been instrumental in that, so I think he's a player that's really appreciated by the team".

"We have four days to share this happiness with our families and we will come back tomorrow calmly and see who is going to face us". We gave everything we have got. I'd helped send New Order's song to number one, buying it on cassette in HMV, upstairs in Top Shop.

"As a team we are playing very well. But we also hurt them".

One would think that the pace and skill of Belgium's Eden Hazard would be the biggest sources of danger for France on the night, yet that came from within the French squad, at the sound of the final whistle.

"Rami's moustache brought good luck", he said. There are 90 minutes to go to win France this World Cup, and we hope to go until the end.

"I don't feel the Premier League or England is that much different".

Paul the psychic octopus famously predicted the outcome of several games at the 2010 World Cup.
