France will go into their World Cup semi-final against neighbors Belgium with a "hunger to win" and a desire to show their 1998 World Cup victor Thierry Henry that he picked the wrong side, forward Olivier Giroud said on Sunday.

Speaking ahead of Tuesday's game, Deschamps said it looked awkward for the former Arsenal goal poacher to be plotting his nation's downfall.

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

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

"Thierry Henry is really important for us".

Martinez had predicted previous year 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. "His presence, his World Cup experience, it is all a very positive influence", said defender Toby Alderweireld before the start of the tournament.

"France has always been one of the favourites to win the tournament".

"He has brought us that important element of experience", the coach said on Friday.

Many are calling this match the real final of the tournament, and, with nothing less than the world cup on the line, rivals France and Belgium will collide in the most high stakes fixture to be played in Russian Federation. Pele scored a hat-trick against France in the semi-final of that tournament, the last teen to score in the last four of the competition.
