Ironic twist to French fears in semi-final win, says Lloris

"This team is nowhere near the level they will be capable of, partly because of age and partly because over the years they'll have more big-match experience".

The World Cup Final is scheduled to kick off at 4pm on Sunday, July 15.

After being dominated in the first half, due to the awesome Hazard, they took responsibility and the control of the match after half-time.

Now in its 10th year, the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation has raised over £12million to date - and Lady Elsie took pride of place at its most recent fundraising event. That penalty save against Colombia was huge, a brilliant save.

Belgium has never been to the final of a World Cup, but that's exactly what they look poised to do as the highest-ranked team (No. 3 in the latest Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings) left in the tournament.
