Manchester United have seven players spread across three different nations in the 2018 World Cup semi-finals.
The first of those was Paul Pogba as France beat Uruguay 2-0 on Friday to reach their sixth World Cup semi-final. The majority of our remaining players are with the England national team, as Gareth Southgate’s side include Jesse Lingard, Marcus Rashford, Ashley Young and Phil Jones.
Romelu Lukaku and Marouane Fellaini are the other two after Belgium beat favourites Brazil 2-1 on Friday night.
Former-Manchester United captain Rio Ferdinand was part of the BBC team cover the Belgium victory on TV. And when the team were discussing Romelu Lukaku, the football-turned-pundit gave a great compliment to our striker.
“It’s like playing in the school playground and you have a 16-year-old playing against the 11-year-olds, It’s like that – he’s too big and too strong for everyone.
“He shouldn’t be allowed to play with them almost!”
Romelu Lukaku had bullied the Brazil defence in another decent performance up front for Roberto Martinez’s side, though he has not scored in either knockout game for Belgium so far.
Belgium take on France in the first semi-final on Tuesday 10 July.
