France defeats Belgium to advance to World Cup Final

France has advanced to the World Cup final with a 1-0 victory over Belgium.

The goal was scored by Samuel Umtiti, who dropped his marker Toby Alderweireld, outjumped the very tall Marouane Fellaini and headed home an Antoine Griezmann corner.

The ball was in the net before Belgium keeper Thiebaut Courtois could do anything about it.

France will play the winner of the other semifinal on Wednesday, England or Croatia.

The last time the French team was in the final was at Germany 2006 when they lost to Italy. The match was decided by a penalty shoot out.
