We'll show Thierry Henry he picked the wrong side

Romelu Lukaku

If he says something, it is always turns out to be something helpful.

Olivier Giroud has admitted that he is eager to show French legend and Belgium assistant coach Thierry Henry that he is part of the wrong camp when the two continental neighbours face off in the World Cup semi-final on Tuesday night.

Like opposite number Martinez, Didier Deschamps has been much-maligned, but the France coach is on the brink of taking his side to the World Cup final.

Hazard said that his country will find it hard to beat France if Chelsea teammate N'Golo Kante "is at his best" for Les Bleus.

On Tuesday, it will be Henry versus France and Henry versus Deschamps, his former teammate for both France and Juventus.

"I've met quite a few of those players and we know exactly how they're held and perhaps, in the modern era, that would be even crazier", Southgate told British newspapers.

Belgium will be deeply disappointed if they fail to win the World Cup, defender Thomas Vermaelen said on Sunday, in the first direct acknowledgement of the team's belief in their ability to emerge triumphant in Russian Federation.

And that's not sitting well with everyone on the French side.

"For me, Roberto Martinez, the head coach of Belgium, should allow Henry to stay somewhere else and watch it alone because it wont be easy for him".

Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku were also outstanding against the Brazilians and Belgium have won their last two matches without this pair finding the net. "He has been in England a long time and personally I have very little contact with him", Le Graet said.

"He'll be happy if we win because above all else he is a Frenchman", the 22-year-old left-back said.

Croatia are through to the semi-final of the World Cup after beating Russia/ Croatia following a nerve-wracking penalty shootout. Croatia beat hosts Russian Federation on penalties after a 2-2 draw after extra time in the World Cup quarter-final in Sochi.


Paris Saint Germain forward Mbappe has scored three goals at the World Cup so far. Playing at home it didn't lose a game, blitzing defending champion Brazil 3-0 in the final. That was the last competitive match between the two countries but there have been eight global friendlies since. Maybe one day he will be able to coach that France team.

Griezmann has seven goals in his last six tournament knockout matches and nine goals and three assists in the World Cup and European Championship. He was a runner-up in 2006 and also competed in 2002 and 2010. I am not too old.

Lloris hailed Belgium as the World Cup's most "complete" team and emphasised the need for a team effort to defeat Les Diables Rouges.

Henry did not choose the Belgian bench over the French one. Henry, scorer of goals that frequently had his audiences asking "How did he do that?" when he was a player, works with Belgian strikers on the fine details of finishing; he is there to divulge secrets, and keep those secrets in a closed circle. "He is there to learn", Giroud said.

"I am convinced that we will break down this wall". But we mustn't be jealous or anything about that. "It is not something that shocks me because it is a normal move at this stage in his career".
