France, on the Brink of a World Cup Win, Has the Bleus

Fans across France are ecstatic as Les Bleus prepare to face off with Croatia on Sunday in the World Cup final.

However, during the ongoing World Cup tournament, he has really impressed with his latest display evident when France beat Belgium 1-0 thanks to Samuel Umtiti's goal.

After the match Courtois and fellow Belgium star Eden Hazard expressed their disappointment at how France had conducted themselves.

"France are just an anti-football team".

'Their striker plays 30 metres from his own goal.

Belgium did most of the probing in the game but were contained by Didier Deschamps' side, who progressed to the final courtesy of Samuel Umtiti's victor just after half-time. France heads a corner and does nothing more than defend.

Courtois claimed he would have rather have lost to Brazil in the quarter-final, as they played good football, rather than go out to a team like France.

He said: "Does Thibaut Courtois think that at Chelsea he plays Barcelona football?"

Thirty-two teams qualified for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

"I don't want to prove nothing to nobody", he said.

"He played at Atletico and won a league title". He scored a penalty in a 2-1 home defeat at the Wanda Metropolitano after failing to net in a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge.

On Sunday, when France goes for global soccer glory against Croatia in the World Cup final, they will do so almost 20 years to the day from when the country first won a World Cup.
