  • In the 2nd half, France got an early corner and Samuel Umtiti’s perfectly timed header put France in the driving seat.

  • On the other side, Belgium’s attacks intensified but to their dismay, they were constantly being hit by fouls as the French defending was looking more strong by the minute.
  • The Belgians were still dominating in the ball possession but it was their lack of shots at the opposition’s goal that cost them the match.
  • All credit goes to France who deserved to win as they dismantled the World Cup 2018’s best attack with ease.
