King, Queen of Belgium, Macron to attend World Cup semi-final

Thomas Vermaelen considers Belgium to be genuine World Cup title contenders

With initial high starting prices, the Red Devils attackers have failed to provide enough points to compete against more modestly-valued defenders from other sides. On paper, France, the 1998 champions, is expected to triumph over the Belgium, but many fans here are saying that an upset could happen, going by the rising profiles of a talent-laden Belgian side.

Giroud has played 380 minutes of France's 2018 World Cup campaign, but is yet to score.

"Thierry Henry is really important for us".

"I'm not jealous. There's a lot of mutual respect".

Belgium coach Roberto Martinez has shown that he can make changes to his system, using a 4-3-2-1 for most of the tournament, but adapting to a 4-3-3 to exploit Brazil's weaknesses down the flanks.

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

In an arguable parallel with Pogba, De Bruyne was shackled by a deep-lying midfield role earlier in the competition.

Deschamps added that Martinez had benefited from the strong foundation he inherited from Marc Wilmots, who was sacked after Belgium lost to Wales in the Euro 2016 quarter-finals.

"It is good to see that with such a young team France is progressing well". He was unleashed in a roving attacking position to devastating effect against Brazil, scoring with a wonderfully sweet strike.

- 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.

Former cricketer and member of India's 1983 cricket world cup winning team, Sandeep Patil, coached Kenya to a historic semi-final in 2003 before Sourav Ganguly's brilliant century dashed their hopes.

"It is unbelievable. It is the dream of dreams, the dream of the future, everything", said 19-year-old Mbappe, who tormented the Belgian defence with his runs. To get the latest soccer news, text "SPORTS" to 22840.
