Pogba dedicates France win to Thai cave survivors

Frank says'It's coming home

Paul Pogba dedicated France's World Cup semi-final win against Belgium to the 12 boys who survived a harrowing ordeal trapped underground in Thailand.

Thierry Henry is now working as Martinez's assistant coach with his loyalties tested when France and Belgium meet in Saint Petersburg, however the former Wolfsburg midfielder believes his influence on the group has helped.

Russian President Vladimir Putin congratulated his French Counterpart Emmanuel Macron on Team France's victory over Belgium and advancement to the 2018 FIFA World Cup final, the Kremlin press service said early on Wednesday.

France coach Didier Deschamps has faced some criticism for being too pragmatic and functional despite having so many stars in his squad, but the organization of the team was superb and Belgium were, largely restricted to only minor chances that were kept out by the flying Lloris.

Federation Internationale de Football Association had invited the team to the World Cup final on Sunday but the governing body announced the boys wouldn't be able to attend since they are receiving medical treatment after their ordeal. I've engraved the Queen's head on a blob of gold and The Last Supper but I'm really proud of my portrait of Harry Kane. They lost in extra time in Paris in the final of the 2016 European Championship to Portugal.

"Forty-nine days together, it is a lot of things, hard things, the group stage, it is the merit of everyone", he said. "We will go into this final to win it, as we have still not gotten over the final".

"I owe him a lot", said a grateful Lukaku. We'll see if it can get even better this afternoon.

The Manchester United forward has scored four goals in the World Cup, managed two assists and looks like a completely different player from just a few years ago. They worked in '98 and we worked today, we reached out target to get to the final.
