The first semifinal of the 2018 World Cup takes place on Tuesday when France and Belgium face each other. This match has the quality and star power to be the World Cup Final, but we have to watch it as a Semifinal.
Corentin Tolisso is the only Bayern Munich player remaining in Russia. He got the start against Uruguay in the Quarterfinals. The 23 year old has started two of France’s five matches in Russia, while appearing in another. It’s hard to know until the lineups are released if Tolisso will be in the starting lineup for this one.
The winner of this match will be considered the favorite in Sunday’s Final. Will it be France or Belgium?
Location: Krestovsky Stadium, Saint Petersburg, Russia
Time: 9:00 pm local time, 2:00 pm EST

- The goal celebrations are for everyone to participate in. Even if you’re lagging behind the others, keep replying to the most recent call of the player’s name. Even if you missed the first call, just start from the second, and so on.
- While swearing is allowed within reason, please be polite to your fellow posters and avoid gratuitous obscenities.
