Soccer-France and Belgium goalless at halftime

ST PETERSBURG, July 10 (Reuters) - France and Belgium went into halftime drawing 0-0 in an entertaining first World Cup semi-final on Tuesday, with both teams creating half chances but neither able to break the deadlock.

Eden Hazard was a lively presence on Belgium’s right, dragging a shot wide and Toby Alderweireld forced a smart save from Hugo Lloris while at the other end Olivier Giroud flicked a header narrowly wide.

The winners will play England or Croatia in the final at Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium on Sunday. (Reporting by Simon Jennings in St Petersburg, editing by Ed Osmond)
