Giroud Labels LIoris Better Goalkeeper Than Courtois As France, Belgium Head For World Cup Semis Clash

Arsenal's French striker Olivier Giroud stretches to try to reach the ball as Chelsea's Belgian goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and Chelsea's Serbian defender Branislav Ivanovic

On the French national team, which faces Belgium in the World Cup semifinals on Tuesday, that player happens to be its center forward, Olivier Giroud.

"It's weird because he's French and will be on the opponent's bench", Deschamps told French sports show Telefoot on Sunday.

Brazil were dumped out of the World Cup following a very impressive first-half display by Roberto Martinez's side.

France play Belgium this Tuesday evening with the victor claiming their place in the final against either England or Croatia.

- Antoine Griezmann has scored seven goals in his last six knockout-stage matches in major tournaments, beginning with his Golden Boot-clinching displays at Euro 2016. "But I'd be proud to show Titi that he chose the wrong side!"

French football authorities are more than welcome to utilise Henry's expertise once his contract with Belgium comes to an end.

"There is no revenge in football, I don't like that word", he said in his official press conference on Monday.

But Belgium are counting on stars of their own like Eden Hazard and Kevin De Bruyne.

Earlier, the Elysee Palace also stated Macron would be taking the trip Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Moscow welcomed the French president's decision to visit Russian Federation for the World Cup.

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.

"It is good to see that with such a young team France is progressing well".

"It has been a few years since he said what he said about me".
