    Full time: Uruguay 0-2 France

    Latest change from France as Griezmann comes off and Nabil Fekir comes on. Into the dying moments here, France cruising into the semi-finals.

    5 mins of added time in Nizhny Novgorod, probably a result of that melee earlier. Uruguay with the ball in the French half, but not making the most of it.

    89 mins: Griezmann with a free-kick 25 yards out, but curls it over. Gimenez is in tears for Uruguay, he knows they are heading out.    

  • 15:41 GMT

    87 mins: Another change from France as they close out the game. Mbappe comes off, Ousmane Dembele comes on. Teen star Mbappe not at his explosive best today, but hasn't needed to be. 

  • 15:38 GMT

    82 mins: Apart from the stunning Lloris save, Uruguay really have threatened very little in this game. Going out with a whimper rather than a bang, and very unlike what we're used to from the two-time World Cup winners.

    80 mins: First change for France as Tolisso comes off, revving up his teammates as he goes. Steven Nzonzi comes on.
