Uruguay v France: Quarter Final - 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia

The first quarter-final match between France and Uruguay saw Les Bleus prevail over La Celeste courtesy of a 2-0 scoreline.

With 40 minutes on the clock, Raphaël Varane put France ahead with his header from Antoine Griezmann's brilliant delivery into the opposition penalty area from the set-piece. The Atletico Madrid striker then cemented the lead via a 61th-minute goal that came off as a result of Fernando Muslera's howler.

In consequence, Didier Deschamps' side will now face either Brazil or Belgium in the semi-final.

Here's how Twitter reacted to the encounter.

"Sport has the power to change the world…it has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than government in breaking down racial barriers."
