Tabarez brings Uruguay in from the wilderness

World Cup

It has fueled confidence inside the Belgium camp that it can deal with adversity and make the World Cup semifinals for the first time since 1986. Friday evening's game in Kazan brings together the two highest-ranked teams left in the tournament following Germany's early exit.

Griezmann didn't celebrate what was his third goal of the tournament.

"I saw the game and I've commented on Colombia twice and I really enjoyed them and the way they played, they were excellent".

Raphael Varane gave France the lead with a header in the 40th minute.

Without having much pace in the team, when Ivan Rakitic and Luka Modric get on the ball it's hard to get teams down.

Netflix is testing out a more expensive tier
Depending on the browser used, the Ultra plan was priced at both €16.99 and €19.99 when the website was accessed in the country. It appears that Netflix runs a test right now in Europe and possibly in other regions as well that unlocks a fourth plan.

Griezmann scored his goal, which was similar to the one scored by Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale against Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius in the Champions League final, in the 61st minute.

"For me and the other young players coming through, they're still inspirational - they set a bar that we have to go and try and reach". "This is the kind of thing that I will discuss with the players in the locker room". "The teams that have been dominant for a long time, maybe their team has an era of players who are very strong". He likes the traditional South American drink mate, he speaks Spanish like someone from the South American country and he's been pictured wearing the team's jersey.

There were also warm words for Uruguay's efforts from Griezmann, who was named man of the match.

The 27-year-old later spoke of his "love" for "Uruguayans and Uruguayan culture" formed by close relationships with club team-mate Diego Godin and former Real Sociedad mentor Martin Lasarte.

We round up Friday's talking points from Russian Federation, as France earned a 2-0 win over Uruguay for their first semi-final appearance in 12 years, and Belgium knocked out five-time champions Brazil.

We have not been practicing penalties, says Russia keeper Akinfeev
Iniesta said the players could not blame turbulence off the pitch for their failure to live up to expectations. Everything has its importance. "To whom supported, suffered and criticised us with respect, thanks".

Cast your mind back to Tuesday night - when we all lost our collective shit over the fact England actually managed to win a World Cup penalty shootout.

The match at Nizhny Novgorod Stadium pitted France's speed against Uruguay's stubborn defence and its occasional attacking threats.

The failure of Messi and Ronaldo to haul their teams to success has coincided with a new wave of worldwide talent, including Kane and France's Kylian Mbappe, starring on the big stage in Russian Federation.

Deschamps said his side had "again raised our level" after the 4-3 win over Argentina in the last 16.

Thanks to a brace by their striker Edinson Cavani, Uruguay eliminated Portugal to advance to the last eight, sending Cristiano Ronaldo home.

But Todd swooped in and saved her, she said. "Please say a little prayer for my sweet hero". Godwin believes it's because of Todd's quick actions that she was not bitten.

Four minutes after Varane gave France the lead, Uruguay almost equalized.
