Eternal tinkerman Roberto Martinez has changed up his team again. Mousa Dembele has finally been introduced, but not in his preferred midfield position. Belgium will be playing him as a wingback. France has just one change, re-introducing Blaise Matuidi, who was suspended for the quarterfinal.

France vs. Belgium news to read before kickoff

How I learned to stop worrying and love Roberto Martinez

Roberto Martinez has broken me. The Belgium manager did it again on Friday, beating giants Brazil 2-1 in their World Cup quarterfinal matchup. He did it playing a never-before-used lineup, featuring multiple people playing out of position, yet another hard-to-understand decision that ended up working out brilliantly for the manager.

France may never live up to their potential, but they’re winning

This French team may never be the team that we want it to be. Every time their lineup is released, there’s surprise and contempt for what France manager Didier Deschamps has decided is the perfect starting eleven for the match.
