Les Bleus have easily gone past the group stage, finishing top of Group C in front of Denmark, with two wins and a draw, only conceding one goal in the process. Didier Deschamps’ team then defeated Argentina 4-3 in the round of 16 in what was the most attractive match of the tournament so far, after which they have eliminated Uruguay with a routine 2-0 victory. As for Belgium, they are the only team to win all five matches without going into the extra time. De Rode Duivels comfortably topped Group G ahead of England, whom they have beat 1-0 in the third round of the group phase. Roberto Martínez’s side have made a stunning comeback in the first round of the knockout stage, defeating Japan 3-2 after coming back from two goals down in less than twenty-five minutes. In the quarter-finals, Belgium eliminated top favorites Brazil by two goals to one, thus securing their first World Cup semi-final appearance since 1986.
