The first semi-final of the 2018 FIFA World Cup takes place on Tuesday, with France and Belgium set to clash at the Saint Petersburg Stadium in Russian Federation.
"I hope that I'll stay undefeated through 31 games and that we'll lift this cup", said Pavard, known for his penetrating play and gritty defending on France's right flank.
So I do think they will find a way to the final - and if they make it back to Moscow four days later, I think they will win it. "We will go into this final to win it, as we have still not gotten over the (2016) final". All the celebrations inspire us as players to bring the nation together and put smiles on people's faces. "There were a lot of things, a lot of hard things".
But England's revival under Southgate at the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation, now just one win away from their first finals appearance since 1966, has shot the song back on to the United Kingdom singles charts, with the line "football's coming home" also becoming the catchphrase of their campaign.
"The tournament has been unbelievable", he said. "I do not have the words", Mbappe said to TF1. Not even in my wildest dreams, and I am a big dreamer, would I have imagined this.
"There is still one more step to take, but we're proud of what we've done".
On arrival, Didier Deschamps' side trained at their temporary home. "We will see after this practice session", he said.
"Shortly after the semifinal game between teams of France and Belgium, Russian President Vladimir Putin made a phone call to French President Emmanuel Macron, who was present at the game".
That goal was a timely one for both the collective and the individual, who had seen his place come under question from some quarters earlier in the tournament.
He said, "Moreover, the fact that we couldn't score the game's first goal was a problem to us, because of the way the France team was organised".
"They worked in '98 and we worked today, we reached out target to get to the final".
