France beat Uruguay 2-0 on Friday to come a game away from making their first World Cup final in 12 years.
An Antoine Griezmann free kick was well connected with a powerful header by centre back Raphael Varane in the first half to put Les Bleus in front.
It was five minutes to end the first half of the first quarter-final game of the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Russia.
So the French went into the break with that solitary goal lead.
They returned from the second half with Griezmann knocking hard for his first open-play goal in the tournament.
And he got it 16 minutes into the half after his long-range strike was poorly handled by Fernando Muslera in post for the Uruguayans.
The game ended 2-0.
France will play the winner of the Brazil-Belgium game in Tuesday’s first semi-final game.
