The 2018 FIFA World Cup champions were looking to add more silverware to their trophy cabinet after surviving an elimination scare in the semifinals against golden generation Belgium.

The Frenchman had 84 percent passing accuracy, won 11 ground duels, registered six successful dribbles, had 3 successful tackles, made 2 clearances, and created one chance. This is an impressive performance for a midfielder who helped both in attacks well as defending.
