Belgium's golden generation falls short again at World Cup

Belgium's golden generation falls short again at World Cup

"Unfortunately our dream has been postponed, and it is very painful for all of us that after so much work and dedication on the part of each player, technical commission, and staff, there is vast pain", he wrote.

"In 1986 at Mexico, Belgium finished fourth, but now in Russian Federation we can still finish third, and I think we have to look forward to that".

It might even end with an England-France final.

"Until five or six years ago I was bit vain, and in a way glad that in 1998 we set the bar so high that it was hard to even contemplate, let alone jump over it".

Russian Federation was knocked out of the competition by Croatia on Saturday, leaving the country disappointed but inspired by their team's unexpected performance.

Supermarkets Lidl and Aldi have announced plans to close stores across England early on Sunday 15 July if the national football team reaches the final of the World Cup.

"It's nice to hear people enjoying it again, anyway".

England manager Gareth Southgate says he knew that the negative press about Russian Federation leading up to this summer's World Cup would not turn out to be true.

Belgium paid the price for failing to take their chances against France but will now have to shake off their disappointment and focus on finishing third at the World Cup, coach Roberto Martinez said after his team's defeat in the semifinal.

But there is a major doubt over the participation of Vrsaljko, who hobbled off with a knee injury in extra-time during the quarter-final win over Russian Federation in Sochi.

Now is the time to look forward to our last game here, " he said. Everyone wants to finish the job and we are excited to try and do that.

"In the changing room, Didier Deschamps was happy".

"We will win and face Belgium in the final".

I expect the teams to be evenly matched, giving viewers an exciting semi-final. Of the tournament's star players, Romelu Lukaku has performed as strongly as we expected him to.
