Belgium's forwards are receiving similarly sage words from France great Thierry Henry, who is a key member of Roberto Martinez's backroom team.

As France and Belgium prepare to fight it out for a place in the World Cup final, some towns along their shared border are anxious that the evening may not be altogether neighbourly.

Soccer Football - World Cup - France News Conference - France Training Camp, Istra, Russia - July 8, 2018 France's Olivier Giroud during news conference. "But I'd be proud to show Titi that he chose the wrong side!"

Giroud has still managed to help France to their third World Cup final in the last six tournaments, the most of any country in that time period.

"I have a soft spot for France given the number of years I stayed there so I hope they continue to do well", said Shereni. "Personally, I just care about winning". 'If Mbappe was watching videos of me when he was younger, now it's me watching videos of him. That evenness is why France is the team to beat in the mind of Jeffrey Marcus, publisher of the World Cup newsletter "The Banter". Belgium will be tough but I really think France have a good chance of making it into the final.

While Asterix is a Frenchman, Tintin - the daring journalist - has Belgium as his home.

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.

"Courtois is hard to play against".

Giroud insists he will not allow Henry's presence on the opposing bench to distract his focus with a place in the World Cup final at stake. "There will be gaps that will have to be used", the forward added.
