#FRABEL thoughts: This #WorldCup is a gift that keeps on giving. This semi-final matchup lived up to its potential, with 22 stars producing excellence all over the pitch. Watching Mbappe play this well on the biggest stage is inspiring and he's younger than me...
Just about every player showed up today for both teams. Do not fault Lukaku, he has been great all tournament, and arguably the best striker during this world cup. Deschamps drew up a game plan to cancel out Lukaku's presence with two world class centerbacks, Varane and Umtiti.
Not to mention, Kante & Pogba were phenomenal in the midfield, blocking & intercepting key entry passes from De Bruyne/others through the middle for Lukaku. Very tough task for Romelu, give full credit to the french partnership of Varane & Umtiti rather than quickly bashing him.

#BELBRA thoughts: Exactly the star studded offensive minded matchup I expected. #BRA were very unlucky to not have led early and even more unfortunate to have conceded twice shortly afterwards.The trio of Lukaku, Hazard, and De Bruyne was lethal today. Courtois was exceptional.
Brazil missed Casemiro. Fernandinho struggled to replace his role effectively. Although to be fair not sure how much better Casemiro could contain the likes of Hazard & co. Miranda did well to tame Lukaku in the 2nd half. Martinez/Henry were right to start Chadli over Carrasco
and Fellani too. Replacing Lukaku with Tielemans was risky but the right decision to trust your defense to finish the job. If Brazil had tied @mbatshuayi surely would have come on in extra time. Both Jesus & Firminho struggled to make an impact, #BRA midfield created most chances

#BELJPN thoughts: Easily the best game of the tournament so far, how can you not love football!!! Japan deserves utmost respect for their performance, and Belgium likewise deserves praise for not panicking and finding a way to win. Both teams laid everything on the line.
Japan is such a fascinating team to watch. They are not the fastest, strongest, tallest, or most athletic, but their technical ability and composure on the ball is a thing of beauty. Japan rarely if ever complained about fouls/ moments that did not favor them. Great coaching
with a team that has bought into a specific system, willing to live and die by their style of play. Belgium, on the other hand, were very unlucky during several stretches of the game, hitting posts, having shots saved, and narrowly missing shots that they'd normally convert.
