France through to World Cup Finals

France are through to the finals of the World Cup after defeating Belgium in the first semi-final in St. Petersburg.

Defender Samuel Umtiti glanced in a header from an Antoine Griezmann corner in the 51st minute to lead Les Bleus to a 1-0 victory.

Meanwhile, French goalkeeper Hugo Lloris shone in net with two big saves to deny Toby Alderweireld and Axel Witsel.

The 1998 champions now await the winners of the second semi-final between England and Croatia, which takes place later Wednesday in Moscow.
