France beat Uruguay 2-0 in Nizhny Novgorod on Friday. Uruguay have been eliminated from the tournament.

"I think we deserved the result. We played against a beautiful Uruguayan side, but we were better than they were today, especially in the second half. We have a young team, we've already played together before, but the requirements today were higher. We could have played better," Deschamps told journalists.

France are through to the semi-finals, where they will face the winner of the Brazil-Belgium game.
