Belgian sights firmly set on World Cup victory, says defender Vermaelen

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.

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

Chelsea striker Giroud will attempt to shatter the World Cup dreams of his club team-mate when their two nations meet in a blockbuster semi-final in St Petersburg on Tuesday.

France and Belgium went into halftime drawing 0-0 in an entertaining first World Cup semi-final on Tuesday, with both teams creating half chances but neither able to break the deadlock.

Courtois boasts two clean sheets from five matches in Russian Federation while Lloris has two in four.

"When I was playing against Monaco he had only played about 10 matches".

Iran and Saudi Arabia broke off diplomatic relations in 2016 and are locked in several proxy wars in the Middle East, including in Yemen.

"I would be delighted if I can prove to Thierry Henry that he chose the wrong camp", Giroud added.

And the Belgium admits Mbappe's performance took him by surprise, because he'd never heard of the teenager before facing him on the pitch.

"When France were world champions in 1998", Giroud said on Sunday, "I think [Christophe] Dugarry scored one goal and [Stephane] Guivarc'h not at all".

The City midfielder scored a stunning effort from outside the box as Belgium overcame favourites Brazil 2-1 in the quarter-finals on Friday.

France defender Benjamin Pavard also hailed Lloris' for his World Cup showings. That evenness is why France is the team to beat in the mind of Jeffrey Marcus, publisher of the World Cup newsletter "The Banter". "But he is someone I really appreciate, I'm happy for him".
