Olivier Giroud Thierry Henry France Belgium 2018 World Cup

MOSCOW, July 9 ― Belgium will be deeply disappointed if they fail to win the World Cup, defender Thomas Vermaelen said yesterday, in the first direct acknowledgement of the team's belief in their ability to emerge triumphant in Russian Federation.

When a Monaco player, Mendy branded Mbappe "Razmoket" - the French translation of children's television programme "Rugrats" - as he was so young.

Retired French striker Henry is now a member of the Belgian coaching staff. "But I'd be proud to show Titi that he chose the wrong side!"

Talking about Croatia and England, they have played each other 7 times previously, 4 are won by the latter.

"Now we want to continue until the end". Because our ambition is winning that final.

Fernandinho put into his own net after just 13 minutes before De Bruyne struck home into the bottom corner from the edge of the box past Alisson on 31 minutes. He was unleashed in a roving attacking position to devastating effect against Brazil, scoring with a wonderfully sweet strike.

The Manchester City man commented: "Too much Razmokets".
