France reached the World Cup semi-finals with a deserved win over Uruguay in Nizhny Novgorod.

Raphael Varane glanced home Antoine Griezmann's free-kick to put Didier Deschamps' side ahead.

And Griezmann sealed the win when his 20-yard shot was fumbled into his own net by goalkeeper Fernando Muslera, reports BBC.

France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris made one of the saves of the tournament at 1-0 from Martin Caceres' header - with a fantastic one-handed diving stop.

Les Bleus, looking to add to the World Cup they won in 1998, will face either Brazil or Belgium in St Petersburg on Tuesday.
