93 Hazard, 92 KDB, 91 Griezmann in Friday FUT 18 World Cup MOTMs

France and Belgium punched their tickets to the World Cup semi-finals Friday, beating Uruguay and Brazil, respectively. Les Bleus got off to solid start thanks to a glancing header from Real Madrid centerback 87 Raphael Varane, and a rocket from Atlético forward 91 Antoine Griezmann put the game to bed. In similar fashion, Belgium took a two-nil lead and fended off a late Brazilian comeback to move forward on a 2-1 scoreline.

Varane's header came off a set piece five minutes before halftime, and Griezmann topped things off in the 61st minute. The french striker's powerful shot ricocheted off Uruguayan goalkeeper Fernando Muslera to double France's advantage.

The Belgians wasted no time getting on the scoresheet; in the 13th minute, a corner flew off Manchester City defender Vincent Kompany's head before hitting Brazil's Fernandinho for an own goal. Twenty minutes later, another Manchester City player, this time midfielder 92 Kevin de Bruyne scored to make it 2-0 early, with an incredible strike from long range. Though he didn't have a goal or assist to his name, Chelsea FC's 93 Eden Hazard showed his class all night long and was some typical TOTW influential sources' Man of the Match.

Brazilian supersub Renato Augusto scored with 15 minutes left to start a late comeback but the Brazilians ultimately came up short. Real Madrid left back 89 Marcelo put in quite a shift in defense, with five interceptions and two clearances.
