France and Belgium have clashed on the field for more than 120 years, but on Tuesday, in the World Cup semifinal in Saint Petersburg, the stakes will be higher than ever before.

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

'He hadn't played a lot of football and to tell the truth I didn't know him.

Henry bagged 51 goals in 123 games, and featured for the Les Blues in four editions of the global showpiece - 1998, 2002, 2006 and 2010.

But Henry is neither the first nor will be the last footballer to represent one country as a player and coach another.

"He's quick and strong, a complete defender", Vermaelen said.

Queen absent from christening of Prince Louis
Harry Aubrey-Fletcher: He went to Ludgrove School and Eton with William and his father is the Lord Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire. It was a family affair for the Middletons, who all stepped out on Monday afternoon to celebrate Prince Louis' christening .

According to earlier reports, Macron will visit Russian Federation to attend the semifinal match between France and Belgium on July 10. As per the schedule, we have a couple of games today.

Martinez had predicted a year ago after Belgium became the first team to qualify from the European preliminaries, that Henry would have a positive impact on the Belgian players at the tournament.

Henry and Giroud have not always had the best of relationships with Henry previously being heavily critical of the France frontman during his time at Arsenal, but Giroud insists his main focus is on performing well for his Country.

'He's become a star in France but when I was playing against him for City against Monaco he'd only played 10 matches, ' De Bruyne said.

Mbappe burst onto the scene during the 2016-17 season when he helped fire Monaco to the French league title and the Champions League semi-finals.
