Eden Hazard made these World Cup predictions and lots have come true

Olivier Giroud has been criticised by Henry in the past but he said there were no hard feelings

Had a video of the meeting not surfaced recently, the moment might have been forgotten to all but Griezmann.

Ahead of Belgium's semifinal against France, Thomas Vermaelen believes that he and his Belgium teammates can win the World Cup.

With the second-youngest roster at the World Cup, France has shown no fear and advanced to its first World Cup semifinal since 2006 led by 19-year-old forward Kylian Mbappe and a pair of inexperienced attacking fullbacks in Benjamin Pavard and Lucas Hernandez.

While Giroud also stated that he has massive respect for Henry, who collected 123 caps for France and won the 1998 World Cup, the Chelsea attacker would like to get one over on the Arsenal legend in the Saint Petersburg Stadium.

This semifinal will also see Deschamps cross paths with former global teammate Thierry Henry, who is now assistant to Belgium coach Roberto Martinez.

France defender Lucas Hernandez said he was sure Henry would be happy if France beat his employers on Wednesday. He does many things, it is the players around him that benefit.

None of the four semifinalists made it to the same level four years ago and two of them-Belgium and Croatia-have only made it this far once, while England has reached the semifinals only twice in its history.

Some football fans in Lafia say they foresee Thierry Henry, a French national and assistant coach of Belgian National Football team team, finding himself in a dilemma as France and Belgium lock horns Tuesday in one of the semi final encounters in the ongoing FIFA World Cup competition in Russian Federation.

And that's not sitting well with everyone on the French side.

'I have already told Henry that I have found out his technique to score goals, ' Lukaku said following the Frenchman's appointment as assistant. "He has been in England a long time and personally I have very little contact with him", Le Graet said. It will be odd to have him against us on this game.

One of the stars of that match - and of just about every Belgium match - was Chelsea attacking midfielder Eden Hazard, and it turns out that not only is he one of the world's best footballers, he's also a clairvoyant. To think that he will wish France to lose is even weirder. But that would prove to be the country's last major title.

"At the time, there wasn't the jersey of Belgium, that's why we wore the one of France". At the end, you do all you can to win and if they're better, they're better.

France's Kylian Mbappe (3 goals) is the highest scoring teenager in a World Cup tournament since Pele scored six in 1958.

Lloris hailed Belgium as the World Cup's most "complete" team and emphasised the need for a team effort to defeat Les Diables Rouges.

"A team is forming and that's important".

Giroud suggested Henry's real aim is to learn enough to earn a spot on the French coaching staff some day.

Both have played key roles in helping their teams to the last four.

"No. This is just an opportunity for him to learn the job without any pressure", says Arsene Wenger. He has good players around him, but we have those too.
