Nations League: France stage epic comeback to beat Belgium



Belgium have missed an enormous opportunity to book their place in the Nations League final, and it might take them some time to recover from this result. Martinez’s side never got going in the second half, and it is France that have the chance to play for silverware. Belgium and Italy will meet in the third-place playoff earlier on Sunday afternoon, but more questions will be asked of Belgium’s golden generation..

A truly incredible comeback from France sees them reach the Nations League final, where they will take on Spain on Sunday. At half-time, they looked down and out after two first-half goals from Carrasco and Lukaku, but they showed tremendous spirit to come back into the game. Benzema gave them a fighting chance when he converted Mbappe’s cross before the Real Madrid man scored a penalty after Tielemans brought down Griezmann. Lukaku had a goal disallowed for offside in the final few moments, while Pogba hit the crossbar, but there was still time for a winner. Theo Hernandez, of all people, charged forward for a counter-attack, and he smashed the ball into the far corner to beat Courtois.
