The match is expected to be a battle between Frenchman Paul Pogba and Belgian Romelu Lukaku as they both play for Manchester United
France who were champions at the 1998 FIFA World Cup will on Tuesday night, July 10, face Belgium who have never won the World Cup title in the seminal of the Russia 2018 tournament.
En-route to this stage, France defeated Uruguay in their quarterfinal encounter while Belgium overcame Brazil in their own game.
Belgium have won all their games from the group stages before they got to the last four, and their credentials will be put to test by France who have also been superb so far at Russia 2018 World Cup.
France haven’t met any side more often than Belgium having played them on 74 occasions.
But they have only met twice at the World Cup which France won with their last meeting coming in the third-place match at Mexico 1986 and have played each other in just eight friendlies since.
France are making their sixth appearance in the World Cup semi-finals and have reached the final in 1998 and 2006, while this is only Belgium’s second appearance in the World Cup semi-finals losing to eventual winners Argentina in 1986.
Manchester United duo of Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku will face each-other tonight at Saint Petersburg.
