Olivier Giroud says France lining up against Thierry Henry will be 'weird'

Olivier Giroud snubs Chelsea teammate when naming World Cup's best

France will go into their World Cup semi-final against neighbors Belgium with a "hunger to win" and a desire to show their 1998 World Cup victor Thierry Henry that he picked the wrong side, forward Olivier Giroud said on Sunday.

"For me, he is one of the three best players I have ever played with in my whole career".

"For me Kylian Mbappe is the best player in the French selection". The two sides will meet on Tuesday to decide who plays in July 15's World Cup final.

Speaking to reporters via BBC Sport Deschamps said: "It is true Olivier has not scored yet, but - I repeat - yet".

Russian Federation is holding its first-ever FIFA World Cup, which kicked off in Moscow with a spectacular opening show at the Luzhniki Stadium on the night of June 14. "Our ambition is to go on and win the final", Vermaelen told a news conference, some 48 hours ahead of the semi-final against France in St Petersburg. Tottenham's Mousa Dembele, a central midfielder by trade, comes in and could deputise on the flank or see Kevin De Bruyne pushed wide in an attacking set-up from Martinez.

Out-jumping the towering presence that is Marouane Fellaini, Umtiti opened his account for the tournament and came through with one of the most memorable celebrations of the World Cup to date. But we will be ready because we have an extremely good state of mind and it is the semi-finals in the World Cup. That evenness is why France is the team to beat in the mind of Jeffrey Marcus, publisher of the World Cup newsletter "The Banter".

"At that time I didn't know him but now he's been playing for a year and a half".
