Olivier Giroud: 'Hugo Lloris better than Thibaut Courtois'

General Giroud picks his best goalkeeper 1 hour ago

Belgium have scored 14 goals in five matches and were hugely impressive in their 2-1 quarter-final victory over Brazil, with Romelu Lukaku, Eden Hazard and Kevin de Bruyne combining to devastating effect to oust the five-times world champions.

Hazard said that his country will find it hard to beat France if Chelsea teammate N'Golo Kante "is at his best" for Les Bleus.

Giroud suggested Henry's real aim is to learn enough to earn a spot on the French coaching staff some day.

What's certain is that with one more win Les Bleus are back in the World Cup final for the first time in a dozen years.

Olivier Giroud is eager to show-up Thierry Henry when France meet Belgium in the World Cup semi-final.

"He has given so much to the France team and we have got a lot of respect for what he has done". "He always tries to help us win games".

Didier Deschamps tweaked his formation, effectively freeing up Kylian Mbappe on the right to run at the Argentine defence, and what followed was a wonderful display of attacking football that France won 4-3. Pep Guardiola's side broke plenty of records as they stormed their way to the Premiership last season, but Mourinho is eager to get one over his arch-rival.

Henry played 123 times for France, retiring from worldwide football after the 2010 World Cup. He's one of only four players to score and assist a few times for both, while only Isco and Lionel Messi (both 23) have completed more dribbles than the wing-wizard (22).




Mbappe is being extensively praised by football observers from all over the world right now, with Belgium's Hazard deeming the 19-year-old a strong candidate for the Ballon d'Or award.

But if some critics of France have been silenced by superb performances, it had been a different story in Belgium until recently.

Belgium has height and heading ability in defenders Vincent Kompany and Jan Vertonghen and Marouane Fellaini.

Both have played key roles in helping their teams to the last four.

His display against Brazil was sensational despite the fact that he didn't find the back of the net or assist a teammate as his mazy dribbling skills confounded the Samba Boys as they were at a loss to recover the ball from him.

I'd lean towards Belgium - they're [2.2] to qualify - if picking a victor but I'm happier to invest in goals both overall and individually.

Paris Saint Germain forward Mbappe has scored three goals at the World Cup so far. Eden Hazard's World Cup prediction.
