Lee Seung-jae reports.
 
Many pundits were expecting an explosive and exciting affair with the French and Belgian squads packed with star players and attacking flair,... but in the end the game didn't really live up to the hype.
 
It was a tight first half with no goals, despite a number of decent chances to score for both sides.
Belgium played an aggressive first 45 minutes,... controlling most of the ball.
 
Belgium's keeper Thibaut Courtois played a crucial role keeping the French side out in the first half,...but it was France's Samuel Umtiti who finally beat the Belgian stopper in the 51st minute,... scoring from a glancing header,... thanks to a superb cross from Antoine Greizmann.
