Preview – World Cup: Day 22

France Belgium

It’s the final week and the first semi-final is on tonight.

Tonight sees France and Belgium battle it out for a chance for glory on Sunday. The losers will go into the third place play-off on Saturday. It seems most people are of the opinion that Belgium will be favourites going into the match, having defeated Brazil and coming back from 2-0 behind to knock out Japan. France however have defeated both Argentina and Uruguay to get to this stage, so are used to tough opposition, and they have won a World Cup before.

Whatever happens, we know that England will face one of these sides this week. The question is who and when?

France v Belgium is on BBC One at 18.30 (kick-off 19.00).
