"The Belgium goalkeeper slammed Les Bleus" tactics following their 1-0 loss in the semi-final of the World Cup on Tuesday.

France advanced to the finals following a 1-0 win over Belgium, thanks to a header by defender Samuel Umtiti in the second half.

"Red Devils" captain Eden Hazard said that "I would have preferred to have lost in the quarter-finals to Brazil, at least that was a team that wanted to play football".

Griezmann said: "In Didier Deschamps we have got a manager who was in the dressing room in 1998". I don't care about that.

"I want to win this World Cup and to do that you have to make sacrifices".

De Bruyne also denied that he was annoyed by France's tight defense, saying he is accustomed to playing against defensive-minded teams in the Premier League.

"[In the 2016 Euros] we thought it was done and that we had won the trophy by beating Germany in the semi-finals".

Both have proved highly useful in attack, though: Pavard struck a sensational equaliser against Argentina, striking first time a pass made by Hernandez.

"We know that we can be offensive at any moment, but the defence remains our base".

Explosion at chemical plant in China kills 19
In 2015, giant chemical blasts in a container storage facility killed at least 165 people in the northern port city of Tianjin. The fire has since been extinguished, however, authorities are continuing to investigate the cause of the explosion.

A French superstar says he doesn't care about the Ballon d'Or award and is only focused on securing the 2018 World Cup title.

"He knows the way".

"It's a chance to win the World Cup, not the Ballon d'Or", he stressed. "His choices are paying off, and I hope it will continue".

Seeing how things have come full circle for Griezmann is just lovely and we're eager to see how he performs on the grandest stage tomorrow.

"We have to be proud to be French".

"He has created a team in his own image and I think that's important", Matuidi told a press conference on Friday.

"The good atmosphere prevailing in the group is reflected on the field. We're all better together, helping each other in our efforts to play as a team".

He added: "Maybe if I was the top scorer in the competition, we would have lost".
