France forward Antoine Griezmann accuses Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois of being hypocritical by calling Les Bleus' tactics "anti-football".

France forward Antoine Griezmann has hit back at Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois's criticism of his team's style of play.

France beat Belgium 1-0 to book their place in the final of the World Cup on Tuesday night, but Courtois was unhappy with Les Bleus' tactics, labelling it "anti-football".

However, Griezmann argued that Courtois's own club Chelsea do not play "Barcelona football" and insists that he is solely focused on helping his country to win a second World Cup crown.

"Does Thibaut Courtois think he plays Barcelona football at Chelsea? I don't care how, I want a second star to be on this shirt. That is all," he told reporters.

France will face surprise package Croatia in the final of the World Cup, which takes place at the Luzhniki Stadium on Sunday.
