"We can't take this match as a point of reference that contradicts everything we've been doing", he added.

Benjamin Mendy and Paul Pogba were leading the singing and dancing in the aftermath of the 2-0 win in Nizhny Novgorod which sealed a semi-final spot.

He said: "I didn't celebrate because when I started as a professional I was supported by a Uruguayan who taught me the good and the bad in football and I have a lot of respect for Uruguay".

The World Cup is back after a two day break - and boy have we missed it!

Widely written off, including by their own supporters, before the tournament began, hosts Russian Federation know they now stand just two matches from the July 15 final at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow. He was injured near the end of that game last Saturday.

Courtois says he never mocked England ‘keeper Pickford’s height
Eyebrows were raised among the England supporters when they saw Dier making the long walk to take the final penalty. Getting over that line was huge for us. "It was nice to get it off our back and we can move forward now".

"He doesn't know what we have to do to succeed in football".

"We still have some margin to get even better ourselves but, although our match against Argentina was not easy, we grew in that game". Only a few times in your lifetime [can you come to a World Cup]. "Time will tell", said Tite.

France won with a Raphael Varane glancing header in the first half and a goalkeeping fumble in the second that gifted Antoine Griezmann a soft goal.

Next up for Roberto Martinez's Belgium is a mouth-watering semi-final with France, who comfortably beat a Uruguay side shorn of the injured Edinson Cavani to back up their thrilling victory against Argentina in the previous round.

"If you focus on the quality of the game, if you focus on the dominance, then you are not so happy".
