Tuesday’s World Cup semi-final pits 1998 winners France against the ‘golden generation’ from neIghbours Belgium.

Both teams were among the pre-tournament favourites, but only one can reach Sunday’s final in Moscow.

With players such as Romelu Lukaku, Eden Hazard, Kevin de Bruyne, Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe and Paul Pogba, these sides boast some of the world’s most devastating attacking players.

But their managers utilise the quality at their disposal in different ways.

France boss Didier Deschamps – who is aiming to emulate Mario Zagallo and Franz Beckenbauer by winning the World Cup as both a player and manager – has often been criticised for failing to get the most out of his squad.

Roberto Martinez who has been tactically fantastic so far for Belgium is also assisted by Thiery Henry; France highest goal scorer of all time and won the 1998 World Cup with the same team which turns out to be his opponent in the 2018 Semi Finals.

Victory would set up a showpiece against Croatia or England – who meet on Wednesday – but who will progress?

Reports indicated that the woman, a client of the savings and loans company, where the incident occured had arrived when the company had closed.

She ostensibly got in despite the close of business and refused to leave till she could withdraw a sum of 250 cedis ($50). Social media users are calling for the immediate arrest of the police officer. 

Local media portals also report that the police heirachy has confirmed that a probe had been opened into the alleged incident and that due process was going to be pursued.

Somalis living in the United States under protected status have been given permission by the Trump administration to remain in the country for at least another 18 months, because of ongoing violence in the North African nation.

At least 500 Somalis in the United States with Temporary Protected Status will be able to re-register for an extension of their status through March 17, 2020, according to a Thursday statement from the Department of Homeland Security. The status grants beneficiaries the ability to legally work while they are in the United States.
