France forward Antoine Griezmann accuses Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois of being hypocritical by calling Les Bleus' tactics "anti-football". It's a dream. We are going through to the World Cup final - but you have to realise that dream.

"I don't want to prove nothing to nobody".

"Each team has a very strong midfield, there are also individually strong players in the attack", Amuneke was quoted as saying by Izvestia. "If I get that star, I don't care about how we play", the 27-year-old Atletico Madrid forward told a press conference at France's training base outside Moscow.

However, Griezmann has since said his only goal is to win the World Cup and doesn't care how.

"I know that a victory can change many things, but we're not really thinking about Monday".

After a slow start in Russia, France have picked up form.

The 24-year old Barcelona player scored the all-important goal in the contest played Wednesday night.

The two stars met in the final four on Tuesday and Samuel Umtiti's second-half header was the difference as France progressed to the final. Young Kylian Mbappe has emerged as the new superstar of French football, and alongside Antoine Griezmann, has terrified defences.

"The tears have dried from Euro 2016 but it's still there in a little corner of people's minds", Matuidi said on Friday. It will serve as a lesson to us and it means we know what it is to play in a final. "I play for football", he said.

"They weren't better than us".
