France coach Didier Deschamps warned there is more to come from his side after they comfortably beat Uruguay 2-0 yesterday to become the first side to reach the 2018 World Cup semi-finals.

A fine header from Raphael Varane and an Antoine Griezmann shot that was fumbled by Uruguay goalkeeper Fernando Muslera gave France victory over a South American side that sorely missed injured striker Edinson Cavani.

Yesterday, Uruguayans were gracious in defeat.

“France crushed Uruguay!” admitted Observador, one of Uruguay's main newspapers. “They handed out a football lesson, dominating the light blues from the first minute to the 90th, and deservedly qualified for the World Cup semi-finals.”
