Henry's World Cup experience the 'missing piece' for Belgium

11 July 2018

The World Cup is set to get back underway this afternoon.

Belgium have plenty of top class stars in their ranks with the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard helping fire them to the World Cup semi-finals.

St. Petersburg (Russia): Although the Tour de France cycle race would normally be the focus of French and Belgian sports fans at this time of year, it's a fair bet that Tuesday's World Cup semi-final here will beat the viewing figures of the annual cycle race in the two nations in question.

"If I didn't score all tournament but we won the World Cup, of course I would take that in a heartbeat", Giroud told a news conference.

Three players are the major focus of millions of soccer fans here in Russian Federation, as France faces Belgium in today's semifinal clash at the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup.The fans are waiting to see France's youthful offensive force led by 19-year-old star, Kylian Mbappe, and Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba, in action against a Belgian side led by Manchester United's Romelu Lukaku.

He praised the adaptability of his squad after changing system from a 3-man to a 4-man defense against Brazil.

The U.S. has been seeking an increased commitment by alliance members to increase defense spending. Some U.S. officials expressed their concern about a meeting without any other aides present.

Like Martinez himself, he now wants the team to try and win Saturday's battle for third place against either England or Croatia, who play their semi-final on Wednesday. They started a bit slow but have been upping their game as the tournament is progressing.

"It's a group of people who share a vision of making Belgian football proud and achieving something important and these players have done that". "We got a boost there". My job's to be good on the pitch, to help my team.

Olivier Giroud claims that France teammate Hugo Lloris is a better goalkeeper than his Chelsea teammate Thibaut Courtois.

Fellow pundit Alan Shearer felt that while players such as Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann give Didier Deschamps" team something special, victory over Belgium also showed the French are "streetwise'. Former German footballer and part of the 1990 World Cup winning squad, Jurgen Klinsmann, coached the U.S. football team between 2011 to 2016.

Just like players are free to choose which country or club they want to play for provided they abide by the law, similarly former players can not be judged by which country they decide to coach.
