World Cup 2018: Scenes of despair in Belgium, jubilation in Paris

Belgium failed to reach their first final of the FIFA World Cup after their dreams were shattered by France in the semi-final in St Petersburg.

Belgium’s best finish at a World Cup so far has been fourth when they lost the third-place playoff to France in the 1986 showpiece tournament.

The win also saw Deschamps become the first French coach to reach the final of two major tournaments – Euro 2016 and World Cup 2018.The current crop of players regarded by many as the “Golden Generation” will now concentrate on winning the third-place playoff on Saturday.
