Center back Samuel Umtiti put France on the board in the 51st minute with a header off of a corner, and the team managed to hold that narrow lead for the last 40 minutes and change.

Croatia needed extra time and penalties to overcome Denmark and Russian Federation before outlasting England in another marathon knockout-stage match.

England's attacking midfielder Dele Alli admits he has not been at his best so far in the FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation, but that could be bad news for Croatia when England play them in the World Cup semi-finals on Wednesday.

Mario Mandzukic struck in extra time to end England's hopes of making only their second World Cup final, but for Milton Keynes, all eyes were on Dele Alli, a 20-year-old from town.

Seven members of Belgium's 23-man squad competing at the World Cup in Russia (Simon Mignolet, Thomas Vermaelen, Vincent Kompany, Jan Vertonghen, Marouane Fellaini and Mousa Dembele) are aged 30 years and above and may retire before the 2022 World Cup in France.

A Reading Buses spokesman said: "We believe".

"When Gareth came in it was the first time we relived it". I've waited 28 years for another.

Thousands of football fans have flooded the streets of Paris after France won their match against Belgium to secure a place in the World Cup final against the victor of England's game tomorrow.

"We'd like to have got to the final", said Omba, 18.

"It's me that scored", Umtiti said, "but we all delivered a big game". They worked in '98 and we worked today, we reached out target to get to the final. As long as I can help the team, it's all that matters to me. We worked hard defensively. "You have to congratulate France and wish them well for the final".

"Rami's moustache brought good luck", he said.

I had memories (mainly of the sticker album and song, rather than the matches) of Spain '82, but Mexico '86 was the first World Cup I'd really embraced. "The boys - and their manager - are a credit to the shirt and the country, I'm extremely proud of them".
