French great Thierry Henry could hurt France's pride tonight

French great Thierry Henry could hurt France's pride tonight

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

France, who are looking for glory for the first time since 1998, has traditionally had the largest representation of African players in Europe. Retired French striker Henry is now a member of the Belgium coaching staff. "I would be very proud to show Thierry that he chose the wrong camp".

"If you beat Brazil you should not be frightened by anyone", Chadli told reporters.

"The fight against Japan was already a turning point, after a 2-0 deficit and still winning within 90 minutes".

"We want desperately to get to the final and go on and win because if it doesn't happen it will forever be a disappointment".

Deschamps has led his side to the semi-finals of this year's World Cup in Russian Federation after overcoming the group stages, beating Argentina 4-3 in the round-of-16 and lastly besting Uruguay in the quarter-finals.

"He's a different player now", De Bruyne added. If the Manchester City man can produce more of the same France are in for a long night.

The match is to be played later on Tuesday.

- Romelu Lukaku has been directly involved in 20 goals in his last 13 games for Belgium in all competitions, with 17 goals and three assists.

There were, however, fears he might miss the St Petersburg showdown against their neighbours after he missed a session along with Samuel Umtiti, N'Golo Kante and Benjamin Pavard, who have also been stalwarts of Deschamps' starting XI as France have gone deep in the tournament.

However, the clash between Les Blues and Belgium will see players from West Africa nations featuring in Didier Dechamps squad having adopted France as their country.
