Riviera Luxury Rentals is giving their utmost support to France in their semi-final showdown against neighbours Belgium tonight! World Cup fever has spread across the whole globe and tonight, we will find out who will be one half of the World Cup final, to be played on Sunday 15th July!
Having not lifted the World Cup since 1998, France will need to be at their imperial best to negotiate past a brilliant Belgium squad full of many superstar footballers – notably premier league winners Eden Hazard and Kevin De Bruyne. France, too, have a ridiculously talented squad, with the likes of Paul Pogba, Antoine Griezmann and kid sensation Mbappe ready to run riot against the Belgian defense, this game could be one of the best matches of the tournament.
The bars of Cannes and the neighbouring areas in the French Riviera will be heaving with French supporters, with cries of Allez Les Bleus being rung around every corner of every bar, café and pub showing the football.
French manager Didier Deschamps, a member of the historic team who indeed lifted the 1998 World Cup, knows exactly how it will feel to be in these players shoes. His experience of reaching the final as a player will no doubt be crucial in his team’s preparations for this semi-final battle.
Belgium, on the other hand, is led by Roberto Martinez, who took the helm just a couple of years ago, and will attempt to take Belgium to their first international final in decades. To add some drama to the story, none other than past iconic France striker Thierry Henry deputies for the Belgian team as Assistant Manager to Martinez! A battle between head and heart ensues for the legendary Arsenal striker.
The disappointment of losing to heavy underdogs Portugal in the final of EURO 2016 will surely be hurting this France national team – with everything to prove, can the French beat the Belgians in this derby showdown?
We’ll see tonight! Catch it at 8PM French time.
Allez Les Bleus !
