World Cup Prediction France – Belgium
France’s national team did not lose any match at the World Cup in Russia, where it had 4 wins and a draw, with 9 goals scored and 4 goals scored. In Group C, the team coached by Didier Deschamps defeated Australia 2-1 at Kazan (Antoine Griezmann 58 penalty, Aziz Behich 81 autogol – Mile Jedinak 62 penalty) and Peru 1-0 in Yekaterinburg (Kylian Mbappé 34) and ended in a tie with Denmark, 0-0 in Moscow. In the finals, the “cocks” eliminated Argentina with 4-3 at Kazan (Antoine Griezmann 13 penalty, Benjamin Pavard 57, Kylian Mbappé 64, 68 – Ángel Di María 41, Gabriel Mercado 48, Sergio Agüero 90 + 3 ) and in the quarter-finals Uruguay scored 2-0 at Nizhny Novgorod (Raphaël Varane 40, Antoine Griezmann 61). “Les Bleus” played much better in the eighth and fourth, and now aim to win the world title after a 20-year break.
At 2014 CM Brazil, France was eliminated in the quarter-finals of Germany (0-1, Mats Hummels 13), but at Euro 2016, where he was host, he played Portugal (0-1, Éder 109). Players and supporters really want to eliminate Belgium and play the 15 July final in Moscow. What could be more beautiful for the French than to win the World Cup in a final with England?
The Belgian representation had a perfect run at the World Championship in Russia, where it had 5 wins in 5 games, the goal being 14 goals scored and 5 goals scored.

Belgium’s best World Cup performance was 4th in CM 1986, where he lost to Argentina in the semifinals (0-2, Diego Maradona 51, 63) and the small finals with France (2-4 after overtime). At CM 2014 in Brazil, Belgium was eliminated in the quarter-finals of Argentina (0-1) and Euro 2016 in France also lost to Wales (1-3) in the finals.

France – Belgium Prediction
The stake of the game is huge, with the winner playing the World Cup dynasty with England or Croatia. Both countries have super players, “Les Bleus” on Kante, Pogba, Fekir, Mbappé, Griezmann, Giroud, and “Les Diables Rouges” on Vertonghen, Fellaini, Witsel, Hazard, De Bruyne, Lukaku. Selector Didier Deschamps has no injured or suspended players, with the exception of the right defender Djibril Sidibé, who is uncertain. After a suspension stage, midfielder Blaise Matuidi, who did not play with Uruguay because of yellow cards, will come back. Roberto Martínez, who is wanted by the Spanish national, does not have injured players but can not count on a player, right-wing defender Thomas Meunier, who is suspended after receiving two yellow cards with Panama and Brazil. Tolisso, Hernández, Pogba, Pavard, Giroud and Mbappé, respectively Dendoncker, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Tielemans and De Bruyne already have a yellow card and will have to be very careful, because in the event of a warning, they could miss the final. It will be an attractive and balanced game where anything can happen.
Prediction Today: Belgium will score at least one goal
