Uruguay started brightly but were lacking a certain panache going forward following Edinson Cavani’s injury sustained against Portugal and were unable to register any clear-cut chances in the game’s early stages.

” France earned their place in the semi-finals of a World cup for the first time since 2006 after securing a tense 2-0 victory over Uruguay at Nizhny Novgorod. Goals from Raphael Varane and Antoine Griezmann either side of half-time saw Didier Deschamps’ men secure the win on what was a contrasting day for the two goalkeepers.

3 Griezmann’s strike from 20 yards surprisingly put France 2-0 up Hugo Lloris made an incredible save to keep out Martin Caceres’ firm header when the game was at 1-0 while La Celeste glovesman Fernando Muslera was at fault for France’s second. Tensions nearly spilled over towards the end of the game after a scuffle broke out on the pitch following an incident between Cristian Rodriguez and Kylian Mbappe.

Uruguay started brightly but were lacking a certain panache going forward following Edinson Cavani’s injury sustained against Portugal and were unable to register any clear-cut chances in the game’s early stages. France’s teenage sensation Mbappe – who starred in their 4-3 win over Argentina in the last round – should have done better with a free header on 15 minutes.

Les Bleus grew into the game and got the crucial lead five minutes before the break when Varane glanced in Griezmann’s curling free-kick from the right. 3 Lloris was alert when needed during the game Moments later, Lloris brilliantly preserved his side’s lead after getting down low to his right to deny Caceres before Diego Godin could only put the rebound over the bar.online bookmaker And Griezmann got his name on the scoresheet to double France’s lead on the hour.

The striker’s speculative strike was too hot to handle for Muslera, but the keeper really should have done better with the effort. Clearly frustrated at the way things went, Uruguay appeared to lose their discipline as the game ebbed away from them. And this nearly descended into chaos after Mbappe went down after running past Rodriguez. Replays suggest there was no clear contact between the two, however.

STAR MAN 3 The captain earned all sorts of plaudits for his save on Caceres France’s incredible flair was too much for Argentina but they were presented with a new challenge against Uruguay of having to win ugly. Les Bleus passed with flying colours. And they have their keeper to thank for his incredible save just before the break. Lloris’ stop came at a crucial time and also did enough to put off Diego Godin on the rebound.

Had that gone in, it would have been 1-1 and could well have made for a different story. MOMENT OF THE MATCH Lloris save is the best moment of the match as a result. It was not the most enthralling game but the keeper brought an incredible piece of quality which has put his side through to the last four where they will face the winners of the Brazil v Belgium tie – a game you can listen to live on talkSPORT Lloris earned plenty of praise on Twitter for the save too from Tottenham fans – some claiming it was the “save of the World Cup.” Latest World Cup news DON’T MISS England vs Argentina: Exclusive coverage of Women’s World Cup clash, team news Diary dates When does the Women’s World Cup start?

2 It is believed Pogba and Mourinho never truly saw eye to eye In the build up to Mourinho losing his job, he stripped Pogba of the vice-captaincy, had a training ground confrontation with the midfielder, and even reportedly branded him a ‘virus’ during a dressing room bust-up. Pogba, 25, has burst into life since Mourinho’s sacking last month, with his assist in Sunday’s defeat of Leicester making it six goals and five assists in just eight Premier League matches under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the club’s interim manager.

He is finally living up to the expectations which he has struggled to reach since his then world record transfer to United in 2016, but if Mourinho was still in charge Pogba might not even be turning out for the Red Devils any more.
