France through to the world cup final after beating Belgium in semi-final


France will face England or Croatia in the World Cup final after edging past European neighbours Belgium 1 nil, in the semi-final in St Petersburg.

Defender Samuel Umtiti scored the winning goal for the 1998 champions in the second half with a towering header from Antoine Griezmann's corner.

Didier Deschamps' side were on the back foot for large periods of the game, but emerged victorious to reach their third final, having been beaten by Italy on penalties in 2006.
