Goal achieved. The fight promised to be tough , it will not have kept all its promises but that does not matter, since the Blues have provided the essential: a place in the VIP square of this World-2018 . Its semi-final, against Belgium, Tuesday, July 10 , the team of France went to seek without effects of sleeve, forceps, against a physical Uruguay but especially very handicapped by the absence of his Matador Edinson Cavani.
Opposed to the third South American opponent of its global campaign, France responded with pragmatism, marking his first attempt framed just before the break, then taking advantage of a huge error Muslera to close the debate. A victory 2 to 0 sufficient to the happiness of these Blues, who have now rendezvous in half with the Red Devils, winners of Brazil (2-1).
It was written that this Uruguay – France would not be the breeding ground for legs and other creams. At the start of the game, the Uruguayans took on the task of highlighting their qualities: speed, fighting and … fighting. The first ten minutes of play were mainly marked by the harsh interventions of Gimenez Giroud (2nd) and Stuani Hernandez (9th), both blessed to have conceded a free kick for their work.
