France Book World Cup Semi-Final Spot

2018 World Cup Report: Uruguay v France 06 July 2018

By SL International - Jul 06, 2018 06:01 PM
FIFA World Cup - Quarterfinal
 
Result: Uruguay 0-2 France
 
Date: 6 July 2018
 
Venue: Nizhny Novgorod Stadium
 
France became the first nation to qualify for the 2018 World Cup semi-finals as goals from Raphael Varane and Antoine Griezmann secured a 2-0 win over Uruguay.
 
The French dominated the ball in the opening exchanges and they could have gone ahead on 15 minutes but Kylian Mbappe headed over from six-yards out.
 
The Uruguayans, meanwhile, were quite content to let France have the ball as they looked to attack on the counter.
 
Les Bleus enjoyed most of the possession in the final 15 minutes of the second half, but they were unable to carve out a serious opening in open play.
 
However, Varane broke the deadlock for Didier Deschamps’ charges five minutes before half-time with a glancing header inside the box following a set-piece by Griezmann, 1-0.
 
Martin Cáceres came close to equalising for Uruguay almost immediately after the restart with a header that was briliantly tipped away by France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.
 
Uruguay were pressurising Deschamps’ men in the opening 10 minutes of the second stanza but they could not really combine in the final third.
 
Griezmann eventually made it 2-0 for France on the hour-mark with a strike from outside the box that was spilled into the back of his own net by an embarrassed Uruguay goalkeeper Fernando Muslera.
 
The Sky Blue could not get their passing rhythm going forward with 20 minutes to play and lacked a sense of urgency.
 
In the end, Uruguay were dead and buried and never really looked like getting onto the scoresheet as France got through to the semi-finals, where they will face the winner of the tie between Brazil and Belgium.
