Belgium vs. France – UEFA Nations League semi-final (10/7/21) | How to watch, start time
One of the most recent international tournaments organized by UEFA in the past two years is the Nations League. Similar to the CONCACAF Nations League, it was set up to allow smaller countries more competition, even though powerful teams move more often.
On Thursday, arguably one of the best strikers in the world leads a Belgian team to Italy to face France in the second semi-final of the tournament.
The two countries have faced each other since 1904, the teams have met 74 times, with the two exchange wins over the years. Belgium has a slight advantage over the French, with a 30-25-19 record.

Belgium have just finished a rather disappointing quarter-final at Euro 2020, but still have the firepower to make it the Nations League final. Star striker Romelu Lukaku recently landed his 100th selection as a member of the Belgian national team in World Cup qualifiers and is the country’s all-time top scorer.
France were stunned in the round of 16 against Cinderella Switzerland at the Euro, and are hungry for international success. They certainly have the talent to do it, along with Karim Benzema, Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba.
