At the final whistle French supporters were in jubilation thanks to Samuel Umtiti decisive goal. It was pomp and color in the streets of Paris with supporters celebrating into the wee hours of the morning.
And in nostalgic reminisce of what was the 1998 world cup, France booked its ticket to the world cup finals in Moscow on Sunday.
The Belgium side was made up of highly experienced players from the Premier League and thus posing a challenge to France’s ambition.
And not for nothing, Belgium will go with a lot of people’s good wishes especially after edging out Brazil to secure this semi-final and have contributed richly to what is being acclaimed as the most attractive World Cup in memory.
France now will be waiting to see who their opponent will be between England and Croatia.
Samuel Umtiti might have scored the winning goal but what probably stole the show was actually Kylian Mbappé’s exquisite drag back, a move that attracted a lot of mixed reaction from soccer loving fans around the world.
