Reigning champions, France have ended England’s hope of winning the 2022 World Cup after defeating the Three Lions 2-1 in the quarter finals on Saturday.
The match between two European powerhouses was billed to be the tie of the quarter-finals and it did not disappoint.
France took the lead in controversial fashion in the 17th minute.
Harry Kane equalised the score after the break with a penalty kick. Olivier Giroud then scored a late goal to put France back in control.
Harry Kane missed a second penalty kick, booting the ball well over the bar.
France will face Morocco in Wednesday’s second semifinal. The winner of that will meet the Croatia-Argentina winner in the World Cup final on Dec. 18.
