How many World Cups have had all-European semifinals? Russia 2018 is the 5th one

With Brazil’s elimination at the hands of Belgium in Kazan, the 2018 World Cup has now become an all-European affair. It’s only the fifth World Cup in history to have only European teams in the last four- the others being Italy 1934, England 1966, Spain 1982 and Germany 2006. Three of those four Cups were worn by Italy, with ’66 being the only exception (another signing it’s coming home?)

The first semifinal at the 2018 Wold Cup will see France square off against Belgium.

The second semifinal will see England take on Croatia.
