The Red Devils were extremely impressive in their last match against Brazil, with Eden Hazard putting in one of the tournament’s most memorable individual performances. Romelu Lukaku was sharp and hungry (though characteristically ungainly on the ball) too and Kevin de Bruyne scored a belter, but Belgium’s backline looked surprisingly vulnerable at times.
Looking to find a way around the likes of Vincent Kompany, Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld will be Les Bleus danger men Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe and Ousmane Dembele. Argentina game aside, France haven’t been particularly easy on the eye this summer, and Didier Deschamps’ men are likely to approach tonight’s game in the same pragmatic manner they’ve done the others. If Belgium get the first goal though, they might have to come out all guns blazing.
Without further ado, here’s how to tune into the game.
