WHEN ARE THIS YEAR’S SEMI-FINALS TAKING PLACE?
6 October: Italy v Spain
The iconic San Siro in Milan plays host to a repeat of the Euro 2020 semi-final, with kick-off set for 19:45 BST on Wednesday. The Azzurri emerged victorious on penalties from that tie and their last competitive defeat came in this competition, three years and 37 games ago. Spain caught the eye in the summer, scoring five in back-to-back games with Slovakia and Croatia and De Gea will be hoping to reclaim his place in the side after an impressive start to the season with United. Athletic Bilbao goalkeeper Unai Simon played all six of La Roja’s games at the Euros and retained the gloves for September’s internationals.
7 October: Belgium v France
There will be plenty of Premier League interest on Thursday, when FIFA’s no.1 ranked side take on the 2018 world champions at the Juventus Stadium in Turin (19:45 BST kick-off). Varane and Pogba are mainstays in Didier Deschamps’s side, while Martial scored for Les Bleus on his return to the setup in September and will be hungry for more goals after his contribution against Everton at the weekend. Belgium are the only one of the four competing sides never to have a won a major international title and, with the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku in their prime, they will surely never get a better chance.
