Eden Hazard celebrating after Belgium knocked out Brazil in the quarterfinals

BTTS has landed in both Belgium's knockout games - 3-2 v Japan and 2-1 v Brazil - and it's [1.9] for 'Yes' paying out again.

He said Henry had made Belgium into "a team that likes to attack".

Only the first 15 minutes of the session is open to media and it was unclear if he joined the team once reporters, photographers and camera crews were ushered out. "Our ambition is to go on and win the final", Vermaelen told a news conference, some 48 hours ahead of the semifinal against France in Saint Petersburg. "You know, I have already said this - we grew up more on the French side than the Belgian, in terms of being football fans - we grew up with 1998". Left-back Hernandez named Hazard and Romelu Lukaku as key dangers but is undaunted by the challenge of shackling the Premier League pair.

Hazard did admit that he was initially unsure of the tactical tweek from Martinez, but eventually realised that the plan would be able to trouble the Selecao. I will make sure that my players are ready to play in different shapes and systems, which we alter mid-match.

"He has brought us that important element of experience", the coach said on Friday. Not only that, but if Hazard can captain the Red Devils to victory, there's no reason why the Belgium skipper can't be named the tournament's best player upon its culmination next week.

Belgium faced a heart-stopping moment of uncertainty in the first knockout round against Japan, when Martinez's decision to rest players in their final group match against England nearly backfired spectacularly. 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. To think that he will wish France to lose is even weirder.

Seoul stocks fell amid selling by foreign investors on brewing concerns of a full-fledged trade war between the USA and China. Computer stocks such as Aisino Corporation and Suzhou Chunqiu Electronic Technology Co both edged up by over 4 percent.

Five games, five wins, 14 goals.

With the two sides just a day away from the highly anticipated clash, Giroud has revealed that Belgium star Hazard is one of the best players he has ever had the privilege of working beside, with France wonderkid Kylian Mbappe closing in on that honour day-by-day. Henry had just helped France to its only World Cup title and Griezmann, who could barely reach the player's waist on tippy-toes, wanted an autograph.

Paris Saint Germain forward Mbappe has scored three goals at the World Cup so far.

"It will be freakish to have him up against us", said France striker Olivier Giroud. Individual skills are always shown, but team play is the characteristic of the French play.

"Yes, it is weird, because he is French and that he will be on the bench of the opposition", Didier Deschamps said on Sunday morning on French television. "The game will be complicated but we are ready for it".

One of the most legendary players the country has ever known, a World Cup and European victor with Les Bleus, the greatest goalscorer the national team has ever seen (51 goals in 123 caps), a former captain and an icon for a lot of French kids growing up.
