Belgium face France in the first World Cup semi final on Tuesday evening in Saint Petersburg after dumping out five-time winners Brazil last Friday.

Roberto Martínez and his men will be full of confidence after their quarter-final win over the Seleção, a result which could prove pivotal in this ‘Golden Generation’ finally kicking on.

However, having reached the last four for first time in their history, the expectation will be ramped up as they look to make good on their enormous promise.
