Samuel Umtiti headed France into the World Cup final in Saint Petersburg Tuesday with a 1-0 win, consigning Belgium's "golden generation" to another bitter disappointment.Belgium's Kevin De Bruyne warned that Kylian Mbappe was ready to take the world by storm on the eve of the game and the most expensive teenager in the history of football showed why inside the first 60 seconds.He skipped past Jan Vertonghen with ease and it was only a last-ditch tackle by Vincent Kompany that prevented Griezmann from latching onto his cross. Lloris and Courtois played a huge part their sides' quarterfinal wins and it was only thanks to two of the best keepers in the world the game remained goalless at halftime.Giroud did at least have a part to play in the decisive opener as, after his shot was deflected wide, Griezmann's corner was flicked in at the near post by Umtiti.For Courtois, France's margin of victory would have been even greater as he made saves from Griezmann and Corentin Tolisso in stoppage time.
