Les Bleus striker Olivier Giroud has raised the stakes with his comment that he hopes to prove why former French great, Thierry Henry, has chosen the wrong side.

However, he is now working as a assistant coach for Belgium, who will face his home Country in the World Cup semi-final on Tuesday evening.

France will go into their World Cup semi-final against neighbours 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.

Speaking to reporters via BBC Sport Deschamps said: "It is true Olivier has not scored yet, but - I repeat - yet".

Giroud insists he will not allow Henry's presence on the opposing bench to distract his focus with a place in the World Cup final at stake. I'm proud of my players.

An increase of 600,000 b/d would not be sufficient to close the 2H expected supply gap, which could reach as high as 1.8 Mbd. So an OPEC deal to increase output could also influence the balance of power in the Middle East.

The forward has been criticized by Henry in the past, but he said there were no hard feelings - just his hunger to win.

Henry looked dejected in the dug-out but spent plenty of time congratulating the France players for their victory and progression to the final.

France has a young team with players like Raphael Varane and Antoine Griezmann and the coach believes that despite recent success, they can continue to improve.

The Red Devils" "golden generation' face the losers of England's game with Croatia in Saturday's third-fourth play-off before going home. "I would have preferred that he was with us and that he was giving his advice to me or to the other attackers. It doesn't shock me at all". It means, if I'm on the field, the boss thinks I can help the team.

Giroud, acknowledges the physical differences between the pair but joked they do have one thing in common. The official back-story of the mascot states that he is an aspiring football player who is "charming, confident and social".
