Just four teams remain, all of them from Europe: Belgium, France, Croatia, and England.

They will now face Croatia or England in Sunday's showdown and are likely to be heavy favourites regardless going into that match.

"Trippier, Maguire, Jordan Pickford, I would put those three in a category where, before the tournament, I was thinking, 'Can they step up?"

If there's one thing the Frenchman has shown this World Cup, is that he's able to contribute to the defensive side of things when necessary.

To be fair to Neville he has been gushing over England's performances in Russian Federation, so he will be quite happy to have been proved wrong by wing back Trippier, centre-back Maguire and goalkeeper Pickford, who have all been vast so far for the their Country. I'm very proud of them.

France players celebrate Samuel Umtiti's goal.

As for the game itself, many are predicting a high-scoring game as it was when France last met Belgium in 2015, with the Red Devils coming through that one as 4-3 winners.

The men's World Cup soccer tournament is down to the final two games. "We know what it takes and in such moments you forget any fatigue you may feel", said the 29-year-old Liverpool player.

It won't just be football fans in Paris and London hoping for France and England wins this week, with a number of Kiwi punters eagerly awaiting the outcome of the semi-finals.

The BBC says one of the two videos in which Vida appeared was posted online after Croatia beat host Russian Federation for the right to play in the semi-final against England.

Players like captain Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne, Romelu Lukaku and goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois are still aged under 28 and will be eager to have another chance.

"I am perfectly ready and fit and I can say the same for my team-mates".

"I was 18 years old in 1998, it was one of the most handsome nights of my life".
