Since announcing that he was leaving Arsenal, Wenger has been linked with a number of high-profile jobs, including at European champions Real Madrid and big-spending French outfit PSG.

After one of the most entertaining international tournaments in recent memory, the 2018 FIFA World Cup will finally come to an end tomorrow night at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow. France and Croatia are the two teams who have made their way through six gruelling games in order to get to the final, and now, they’re just 90 minutes away from becoming the world champions. Both have what it takes to cross the finish line, but in the end, there can only be one.

On Saturday afternoon, Belgium and England meet in the World Cup 2018 third-place play-off game in Saint Petersburg. Neither side will have wanted to participate in this game, but both will be keen to end their adventures in Russia on a high.

Belgium

For much of World Cup 2018, Belgium has looked like a team that could lift the trophy. In fact, the Red Devils were unbeaten in 24 games heading into their semi-final with France, only to suffer a 1-0 defeat against Les Bleus.

In case you hadn’t heard or have been living under a rock, England are playing in a World Cup semi-final today against Croatia for the right to face France in the final. That’s not a joke and that’s not some kind of wind-up ahead of the new domestic season, because it’s true. While we fully understand that the title of this video will probably confuse some of you given that most people reading this are likely English, there’s always a chance that you haven’t been fully embracing the World Cup fever that’s been sweeping across the nation.

We’ve arrived at the semi-final stage of 2018 FIFA World Cup, and very few people could’ve imagined that this would be the final four we’d end up with. France, Belgium, Croatia and England are all in with a phenomenal chance of becoming world champions, but only one nation can fulfil that prophecy. The French and the Belgians will kick things off tonight, and then tomorrow, the second place in the World Cup final will be determined as dark horses Croatia and England battle it out.

On Tuesday night, France and Belgium go head-to-head in the first semi-finals of World Cup 2018. Both teams have impressed in Russia so far, but only one can make it through to Sunday’s final.

France

France have not hit their top form of yet in Russia. However, Les Bleus have won four of their five matches at World Cup 2018 and shown flashes of quality in the process. After a reasonably comfortable passage from their group, Didier Deschamps side has beaten Argentina and last time defeated Uruguay 2-0 thanks to goals from Raphael Varane and Antoine Griezmann.

We’ve arrived at the quarter-finals of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, and what a journey it’s been. In arguably the most unpredictable international tournament of the last few decades, we’re set to see an unfancied team make it all the way to the World Cup final – but the question remains as to who that will be. Two of the leading contenders are hosts Russia and Croatia’s golden generation, as the two prepare to battle it out this weekend in the biggest game these players have likely ever been involved in.

On Saturday afternoon, Sweden and England clash in the quarter-finals of World Cup 2018. Neither has made the last four of a World Cup in recent history, so both will see this as a big opportunity to move into the latter stages of the competition.

Sweden

Sweden have been one of the surprise-packages of World Cup 2018. The Scandinavians needed a play-off against Italy to qualify for the finals. However, Janne Andersson’s side has won three of their four games in Russia. In the last-16 they recorded a 1-0 win over Switzerland courtesy of a goal from Emil Forsberg.

We’ve made it down to the final eight at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, and while there are certainly some teams that have a better chance of winning the trophy than others, this year’s tournament has proven that nothing is impossible. Every single nation to have reached the quarter-finals deserves to be here, and tomorrow, we could see one of the games of the year when Brazil face Belgium to see which one of the two juggernauts will progress to the semi-final stage.
