Russian Federation 2018: Semi-final combatants set for showdown

Belgium's Moussa Dembele makes a point to Thierry Henry at training

Hugo Lloris expects Thierry Henry to have divided loyalties when France face Belgium for a place in the World Cup final on Tuesday night.

The 25-year-old Varane has been does well in Russian Federation, scoring the first goal against Uruguay with a header. "It is a hard situation - freakish - it is not easy for him".

Belgium coach Roberto Martinez brought Henry into the Belgium set-up two years ago to impart not just his knowledge of goal scoring he is France's all-time top scorer with 51 goals in 123 appearances, and Arsenal's with 228 but also his experience of winning with a team weighed down by great expectations.

"I want him to be as efficient as possible for our team". Neymar, whose 2014 World Cup campaign was cut short by an injury; Neymar, who is in the prime of his career; Neymar, who orchestrated a move to Paris Saint-Germain exclusively so that he could present a strong case for Ballon d'Or; Neymar, around whom 200 million Brazilian's hopes revolved was ready to paint the canvas with his pristine strokes of genius, but when the melee settled and Belgium stood victorious, it was Eden Hazard who walked away with the plaudits. Now France's head coach, Deschamps admits it will be "strange" to see Henry in the opposite dugout. "As long as we win, that's fine with me".

British newspaper calls on England fans to wear their waistcoat with pride
If you do go on to win the tournament - and I hope you do - it would have an indescribable effect. I want England to have that feeling of staying grounded - until you have hold of the trophy.

Victory against France - a team against whom they have historically, and somewhat surprisingly, enjoyed an upper hand; of their 73 games Belgium have won 30 to France's 24 - will only add to their growing legend.

The biggest story of the first World Cup semi-final is on the bench.

"He has given so much to the France team and we have got a lot of respect for what he has done".

Hazard has arguably been the outstanding player of the tournament and pulled Brazil and their right back Fagner around the field in their quarter-final.

But France also have the ghost of previous high-profile failures behind them, specifically the Euro 2016 final that they should in theory have strolled against Portugal only to choke on home turf.

"It happens sometimes when you play in a foreign club and come back and play against a French team".

Deadly duo: Kylian Mbappé and Antoine Griezmann have scored six of France's nine goals between them.

Top stat: Lukaku has been directly involved in 20 goals in his last 13 games for Belgium in all competitions - three assists and a whopping 17 goals. I think he's the leader at the back. "Because they are young, they are determined and they are still growing as players".

24,000 fans thank Russian players for fantastic World Cup display
While they have a case when it comes to political symbols and the like, this is merely a player remembering his friend who died. Denis Cheryshev said the most important thing about the World Cup was that it gave joy to the entire country.

"You might get that chance again, but it's better to seize it when you get it", France coach Didier Deschamps said. There's still a sense that he could be doing more with the brilliant set of players at his disposal, France frequently a fairly stodgy team to watch, relying on moments of brilliance from Pogba, Mbappe or Griezmann. "He is there to learn", Giroud said. But we mustn't be jealous or anything about that. "It is not something that shocks me because it is a normal move at this stage in his career".
