Deschamps says France proved mettle; ready for Brazil or Belgium

Les Bleus punched their ticket to the quarterfinals for the third time in their past four tournament appearances after outlasting Argentina in a thrilling 4-3 victory as +140 chalk on Saturday, while Uruguay knocked off Portugal 2-1 as a +200 bet. But the ball popped off his palms and looped over his head and into the net.

Belgium take on France in St. Petersburg on Tuesday, while the winners of tomorrow's two quarter-finals will meet in Moscow on Wednesday. Griezmann was on the scoresheet, buthe refused to celebrate his goal, and he explained why in the post-match interviews.

"I cannot complain that I have players who can take up several offensive positions", Deschamps said earlier this year.

Raphaël Varane (France defender): "This is pure joy; it's attractive".

"The set piece situation will be a clear factor - for the first time I think we are coming up against a country that is more or less on par with us in that respect", warned Andersson.

Godin is godfather to Griezmann's daughter, and he explained his love for the defender and his nation ahead of the game. "But I think he would be worth it", said the legend.

The recriminations for Brazil will start in earnest after failing to reach the final for a fourth consecutive World Cup, with coach Tite sure to come under fire despite being widely praised in the build-up to the tournament.

They beat Poland again, then West Germany to lift the World Cup.

Uruguay suffered without striker Edinson Cavani, who was ruled out with a calf injury.

Four minutes after Varane gave France the lead, Uruguay almost equalized.

His coach Didier Deschamps echoed this sentiment, saying his team had been disciplined and strong in defence, but admitted that his side "can play better", especially in attack.

Many of them stopped in the Shannon bar in the centre of the city, on the banks of the Volga river, hours before the game to sing songs and hang up flags. And the 49-year-old added that he believed were gathering momentum at the right time.

Mbappe scored twice against Argentina to become the first teenager with multiple goals in a World Cup knockout game since a 17-year-old Pele in 1958.

Heading into the match, Uruguay had been unbeaten in 2018 and Muslera had the best save percentage of any goalkeeper at the tournament who had played more than one match.

Guidetti teed up strike partner Berg in the 71st minute but Pickford, who kept his first clean sheet of the World Cup, tipped the effort over the crossbar.
