Steve Nicol was right-- Lukau was bloody dreadful...old, slow, overweight, disinterested. The only thing right he did was when he did nothing (ie played a dummy). Other than that he was a bystander.

I think Lukaku will play as an old fashioned number 9. I will be surprised if Belgium don't boss the midfield. That will cause France problems but any speed could cause Kompany a few problems. Overall I think Belgium have the edge if De Bruyne and Hazard play well and my guess is Hazard is promoting himself out of Chelsea so he will want to play well.

France’s logic is simple Do you have the ball? No- never mind Yes- Are you Mbappé? Yes- RUN No- pass the ball to Mbappé

and who did belgium play so far? if france were in a group with tunisia and panama mbappe's stats wouldve been much much better so for me lukaku so far has been average. you obviously know your stuff but what you did is cover the best case scenario for both teams, what they could do at their best unfortunately football is not as simple. kante and umtiti will be key for france because they aim to cut passes and steal the ball early, they move a lot rather than stay static. belgium has good players but to get past kante they need teamwork and so far they havent shown much of it. sure, they have exploited spaces left by their opponents but thats it. against japan they won because they were better prepared and stronger physically but didnt quite convince with their performance. against brazil for example late in the game when brazil finally started trying to attack the back post there were huge holes in belgium's defense, the players were really static and thats their weakness. france on the other hand has been quite average as well but apart from argentina they met team with good defense and even so, they still won the majority. they've build their team around midfield stablity and control of tempo - griezmann plays in a free role mostly aiming to slow things down and calm his teammates while mbappe is solely focused into penetrating and there's giroud who so far has just watched for free. the rest are responsible for the defense. france has pacey wing backs on the bench but the fact they are not starting tells you a lot. belgium are by no means doomed here but if france's approach is something belgium generally find hard to deal with. france has enough pace and stability to deal with belgium's creative midfield but they themselves lack creativity. belgium as said can be creative and unpredictable but they find it hard to play in slow tempo games such as this one. in my opinion france wins this

how the hell are you going to talk about belgium v france and not even mention hazard in the reds attacking play?! he will do immense damage against the french side and you forget that even if fellaini is a clear threat against kante in the air, pogba can still play deeper and beat him on a header

Should've probably wrote Attacking CM about Fellaini because "Attacking MF" made me giggle for 30 seconds straight and I don't mean his initials.

If Deschamps doesn't win the demn trophy with the players he has he is dumb, there is no team that can pull a suprise n beat him, everything is too alighned for France to win it.

I feel France should start without Giroud. Use Dembele or Lemar on the left side, and Griezmann as a false 9 in the middle. I think Giroud will be completely taken out of the game with the three strong centre backs. A quick winger on the left hand side would put a lot of pressure on Belgium since Meunier is out, and that's where Kompany plays and he looks really shaky.
Matko Kuljić (4 months ago)
How many games will be played by the Waves and the Flemish and the French in this match ?? You have over 70 million and you can not give 5 players . Who is playing against who ? You are so talented for football :)

We should take a moment and be just happy how well this years world cup has been. Find it 10x better than the one in Brazil. Any team had a chance it feels like and every team scored a goal. 100% in my top 3 world cups. Also its not coming home

If you were to die today are you 100% sure you can go to heaven?. So, you must realize that you sinned, against a holy God therefore you are a sinner(Romans 3:23 - For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God), if 1 crime makes you a criminal, then 1 sin=you are a sinner. And God has to punish sin with hell forever( Revelation 20:5 - And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet [are], and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever). But, you can be saved/go to heaven because of Jesus Christ and only what He did( who is God by the way John 1:1 and 14 - In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God/And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.) by putting all your FAITH/TRUST from the HEART in the death on the cross for the forgiving of sins, burial and ressurection on the third day of Jesus Christ, the BLOOD of Jesus for the forgiving/cleasing of sins(1 Corinthians 15:1-4 - Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures), (Romans 5:9 - Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. ). Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God/ Not of works, lest any man should boast. You don't have to do anything to get to heaven, no work, just trust, RELY on what Jesus Christ did, in His blood for your salvation. Now if you put your trust in what Jesus did, you are going to heaven no matter what, you have eternal security(Ephesians 4:30 - And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption). Now of course grace is not a excuse to sin. Do not sin but not to get saved or stay saved but only to please God.( Romans 6:1-2 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?), after death going to heaven or not you will face judgement. If saved, you will go to The Judgement Seat of Christ where your works you do after being saved are judged for rewards there.Also out of a good conscience we must not bother God by sinning because he died for us to be saved.

T-man the Dude (4 months ago)
hussar Interesting facts for you: Right Back, Gotoku Sakai of the Japanese squad, was born to a Japanese father and German mother in New York. Winger, Aleksandr Samedov of the Russian squad was born to an Azerbaijani father and Russian mother in Moscow. Whereas, Right Back, Mario Fernandes was born in Brazil. S/N: Your head would have probably exploded if you were alive prior to the 17th century (Gregorian), the concept of citizenship was in its infancy and nation-states only just started emerging. People used to move across territories all the time back then.

Who is gonna replace Meuneir? Why doesn't Martinez take any full backs?!! Some guy from the Belgian league is better than playing Vertonghen and Alderweireld there? Even if he thought they would play 3-4-3, they're good to have in the squad for tactical flexibility.

As a Croat, the France vs Belgium will be a blast to watch. I dread at the Croatia - England match however. I think we are more exhausted but alas the team should press forward. Whatever happens - happens, top 4 in the world isn't a small thing. peace

why wouldn't belgium try jordan lukaku? he's more like natural left back, i think he will handle mbappe just better than carrasco
Thiby Delporte (4 months ago)

it was mainly against long shots they were always on coutinho's face
TheSinglePlayer (4 months ago)
You forgot to mention that Carrasco didn't play against Brazil. Chadli filled the LWB role. And I would like to add that he was excellent.
well aname (4 months ago)
i agree with that . and they set it up like this cause meunier is Suspended .
Is it seriously possible that France doesn't have a true left winger??? I can hardly believe that they can't find a better LM unless it's their tactics to have a defensive winger alongside an offensive winger...

SuperMutt&BMax ._. We haven’t ‘guessed’ or predicted anything. We don’t do that. We simply explain things, and from that people can make their own decisions.
Hiroku (4 months ago)
I think the key to this game will lie in how Martinez handles Meunier's suspension. Chadli has pretty much "fixed" the problems in the left side of their defense by replacing Carrasco at that flank, but with no real replacement for right-sided FB/WB in the bench Martinez might be tempted to play Chadli on that side, which would be lethal with Pavard/Mbappe exploring the space behind Carrasco on the left. On the other hand, if he plays Vermaelen as a makeshift RB, then you effectively have 2 central defenders playing as full-backs on both sides which will rob the team of width going forwards. Maybe Martinez can pull another tactical masterclass and fix this problem with something completely inventive (e.g. go with a back-3 and adapt De Bruyne or Dembele as one of the wingbacks?) then we may well have a great game on our hands.

Court Dastardly (4 months ago)
Back when Wilmots was coach we used to play a 433 all the time with Vertonghen, Alderweireld as LB and RB and Vermaelen, Kompany as CB. Our defence can adapt back to that formation easily. Especially Vertonghen, he has loads of expierience as a LB.

rhaydde (4 months ago)

What about Meunier being suspended? Assuming that forces Belgium to a back three, who comes on as right wing back? If they draft in Boyata for a back four with no natural full backs, what then?

Chadli will start instead of Carrasco
