Fans welcome Brazil team with stones after crashing out of World Cup

Seven Blues reach World Cup semis France fire World Cup shot - We'll show Thierry Henry he picked the wrong side
Cassandra Castillo | 11 July, 2018, 04:57

France beat neighbors Belgium 1-0 in St. Petersburg on Tuesday to reach the World Cup final, where they will face either Croatia or England.

Henry, France's all-time leading goalscorer, was a member of the squads that won the 1998 World Cup on home soil and Euro 2000 alongside French boss Didier Deschamps.

"I would be very proud to show Thierry that he chose the wrong camp". He speaks to us, we can talk about football as we can talk about other things with Thierry. "Then he is a coach, his dedication, attention to detail and is trying to help any player in this squad, so he was the flawless missing piece in our technical staff".

De Bruyne also admitted that it felt like a "now or never" moment for this Belgium squad who, after quarter-finals together at the last two worldwide tournaments, have already take a step forward in beating Brazil last Friday to reach the last four.

"He had only played about 10 matches and at that time I didn't know him", said De Bruyne.

"He brought us tighter together with more belief of winning it", said the Manchester City midfielder.

Roberto Martinez's men troubled the five time champions all through the first half to get more goals but their efforts weren't good enough to find the back of the net. "When you are here, you want to go on till the end".

Vincent Kompany, Kevin De Bruyne, Fabian Delph, Kyle Walker, John Stones, Raheem Sterling and Benjamin Mendy will all keep the sly blue flag flying in the World Cup semi-finals.

"The frustration is there because we didn't lose to a team who are better than us, we lost to a team who play nothing, just defend".
