  • Jordan Henderson England World Cup

"He has been in England a long time and personally I have very little contact with him", Le Graet said. The Red Devils and Les Bleus are competing for a spot in the World Cup final, and both teams are bringing world-class attacking talent to the match.

"There is a big rivalry between France and Belgium, it´s like a derby match".

First, let's cover the suspensions.

Matuidi, who was suspended for the 2-0 quarterfinal win over Uruguay last Friday, comes into midfield to replace Corentin Tolisso.

Giroud, who like Henry was an Arsenal forward until he joined Chelsea previous year, wishes Henry were on the French staff. Central to their success in this tournament has been their tactical flexibility, and Martinez may change the formation again to a 4-4-2 to cover for the suspension of wing-back Thomas Meunier.

"For me, Roberto Martinez, the head coach of Belgium, should allow Henry to stay somewhere else and watch it alone because it wont be easy for him". The PSG right-back received his second yellow card against Brazil. It's unknown how Martinez will set up his squad against France, who present a similar defensive challenge.

French football despite being one of the most popular players that France has ever produced. If France wins, he can not celebrate; it is the same if Belgium wins.

At 21 minutes in Belgium took a corner which fell to Tottenham Hotspur's Toby Alderweireld, who swiftly turned to take his shot leading to a superb save from French keeper and Tottenham team-mate Hugo Lloris.

"I think the Belgian team is the most exhaustive team in all aspects of the game during this tournament - they are strong everywhere", Lloris told reporters earlier this week. "They played a great game against Brazil with a specific game plan", said the 49-year-old Deschamps. England's medical team are monitoring Henderson's situation and will manage it ahead of the match. "For him tomorrow it could be a bit hard, but he works for Belgium now, he wants us to win". Here is a quick reminder of the team news before we get started. "It is an opportunity in our careers and we have to grab it with both hands".

On social media networks in France, where the nation's most hot-headed and opinionated commenters tend to hang out, Henry has even been branded a "traitor" for taking a role with the Belgian national team.

While, Martinez isn't expected to mirror the entirety of his masterplan against France, this newfound setup is the flawless marriage between Belgium's high-flying offensive interplay and resoluteness at the back with the Alderweireld-Kompany-Vertonghen trio coming to the fore against one of the tournament's most potent attacking threats in Brazil.
