England has not been as far as the semi-finals since they last hosted the tournament in 1966.

Deschamps, who captained France as they won the 1998 World Cup on home soil, hailed the character of his young team and credited his players' effort at the back.

Romelu Lukaku of Belgium is seen during the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia Quarter Final match between Brazil and Belgium at Kazan Arena on July 6, 2018 in Kazan, Russia.

Thierry Henry is now working as Martinez's assistant coach with his loyalties tested when France and Belgium meet in Saint Petersburg, however the former Wolfsburg midfielder believes his influence on the group has helped.

"I'm not saying that I'm not proud of what we did all together 20 years ago". He posted the boys' photos and said the victory "goes to the heroes of the day, well done boys, you are so strong".

The goal capped an impressive display by Umtiti, who helped to shut out the most productive attack in the World Cup with 14 goals, and meant three defenders have now scored on France's route to the final.

He said: "This team is nowhere near the level they're going to be capable of, partly because of their age, but also because they'll have more big-match experiences over the next few years with their clubs and with us".
