Belgium Must Get Over Missing Final Match Quickly- Martinez

Belgium Must Get Over Missing Final Match Quickly- Martinez

If you follow football (or "soccer" as it's known in North America) then you'll no doubt be tuned into the 2018 FIFA World Cup, which is now taking place in Russian Federation.

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.

"We faced a really good Belgium team, but we hurt them and we could have hurt them more if we had been more precise, but we were prepared for anything and we showed once again everything that is positive", commented Deschamps.

Nicknamed "the Fiery Ones", that team has stood as an example to their successors ever since. I'm very proud of them.

"The task of getting the players to get over today's loss, I will admit, is going to be hard to deal with, but I think we have something important too before us".

"We've strived to be as good as we could be at global level and it's taken us two years to get there".


"But now. I pray and I would give anything in the world that this squad eventually "confines us to history".

"It is unbelievable. It is the dream of dreams, the dream of the future, everything", Mbappe said.

Croatia went undefeated winning Group D, including a convincing 3-0 hammering of Argentina, then beat both Spain and Russian Federation in matches that lasted 2 hours each and both went to penalty kicks.

"We've been always returning to the 1998 team. putting a new burden on Modric and his team". Certainly in the Premier League they know he's Leicester's best header of the ball so we do usually get the opposition picking him up from corners. Belgium, on the other hand, have at no point in this tournament failed to light up the stage, playing energetic, end-to-end football.

Dalic said he isn't concerned about his Croatia squad running out of steam. We have played five games, but being exhausted can not be an alibi. "We want to finish this tournament in the best possible way".
