Samuel Umtiti's 51st-minute header sent France into the final with 1-0 win over Belgium in an absorbing first semi-final last night in the FIFA World Cup.

It was a fascinating first half and all that was missing was a goal but one came soon after the break. Having gained the lead, France went defensive to nullify the threat from Belgium's Eden Hazard and Kevin de Bruyne, closing out the game for a win. 

The French would now look to lift the trophy for the second time following their triumph on home soil in 1998 when they face the winner of today's semi final between England and Croatia. 

Today's semi-final will be played at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow at 11.30 p.m. Final will be played on Sunday in Moscow.
