Semifinals, of course, were played over the course of Tuesday and Wednesday. The third-place match will be played on Saturday between Belgium and England. And finally, the World Cup final will take place on Sunday, July 15.
Here’s just about everything you need to know about the World Cup final — outside of who’s in it, of course.
