BREAKING: France Becomes First To Enter World Cup Semi-Finals After Defeating Uruguay 2-0

France became the first team to reach the World Cup semi-finals on Friday after an assured 2-0 win against Uruguay.
A colossal error by Uruguay goalkeeper Fernando Muslera resulted in France taking an unassailable 2-0 lead in the World Cup quarter-final in Nizhny Novgorod. Muslera spilled Antoine Griezmann's long-range effort into his own net to double France's tally, after Raphael Varane had opened the scoring before half-time with a precisely placed header from a Griezmann set-piece. Up until Varane's leap France had been relatively subdued, following their exciting attacking display against Argentina.

Uruguay struggled to threaten upfront without the injured Edison Cavani to partner Luis Suarez, with the combination having proven so effective throughout the tournament. And their frustration boiled over in the second half, led by captain Diego Godin, after France striker Kylian Mbappe appeared to go to ground too easily following little contact.

France will now wait to see whether they will face tournament favourites Brazil or close rivals Belgium in the semi-final, which takes place on July 10 in St Petersburg.
