Raphael Varane reaches World Cup semi-finals with France after defeating three Man Utd team-mates


England came out into the second half flying, and just five minutes in were gifted a route back into the game from the penalty spot. Quick one-two play down the right saw Bukayo Saka dribble into the box, where he was taken down by Tchouameni, leaving the referee no choice but to award a spot-kick. 

Three Lions captain Kane stepped up, face to face with his Tottenham team-mate Hugo Lloris, and he scored emphatically, sending France’s keeper the wrong way and shifting the momentum in his team’s favour. 

Maguire came close to heading his nation ahead after latching onto a Jordan Henderson free-kick, but his header narrowly skimmed the post and went wide. 

Less than 10 minutes from the end, Giroud restored France’s lead. His nation’s all-time leading scorer, he came agonisingly close to putting them ahead initially, but for an excellent save from Pickford. Minutes later, however, the Milan striker was on the end of a ball into the box to head home.
