France topped Uruguay 2-0 despite taking only two shots on target to advance to the semifinals, squaring off against a Belgian side that topped tournament-heavyweight Brazil 2-1 on Friday. England, winners over Sweden 2-0, will take on Croatia after the squad took down host Russia in penalty kicks late Saturday night.

The winners will meet in the World Cup final on July 15th.
