Every since England played Sweden at the weekend, the entire nation has been excited to find out who we will play if we manage to get through the World Cup semi-finals – and the answer is France.
Last night (July 10th), the French national team beat Belgium 1-0 in the semi-final competition, with Samuel Umtiti scoring a goal.
They will now take on the winner of tonight’s match between England and Croatia, with the final set to take place on Sunday at 16:00. The winner of that match will be crowned champion of the FIFA World Cup 2018.
Nearly 20 million people watched England beat Sweden 2-0 last Saturday, making it to the semi-finals of the tournament for the first time in 28 years.
It is expected that even more supporters will come out in force for tonight’s game, with many people shocked to see the England national side – managed by former player Gareth Southgate – performing so well in the competition.
One football fan who will most likely be tuning in is newly-married Prince Harry, who was asked by reporters at a meeting with Ireland’s President Michael D Higgins yesterday if “football was coming home”.
His reply of “most definitely” revealed his excitement matched millions of Brits this week. Those who aren’t among the 10,000 who will watch the game live in Moscow will be able to catch the football team’s performance on TV, at the pub or even screened live in public spaces.
Hyde Park, London, Manchester, Bristol and Liverpool are just a few cities showing the contest on large screens to eager crowds when the game kicks off at 19:00.
