France striker, Olivier Giroud is confident the Leu Bleus will defeat Belgium to prove to former French striker, Thierry Henry that he made a wrong choice to coach Belgium.
Thierry Henry is now a member of the Belgian national team coaching staff and Roberto Martinez right-hand man in Russia and will be in the dugout when France clashes with Belgium.
Giroud in a pre-made match conference on Sunday said France are hungry to reach the final of the World Cup, as well as win it.
He said, “It is bizarre to have Thierry against us in this match. I would be very proud to show Thierry that he chose the wrong camp”
“It has been a few years since he said what he said about me. My job is to be good on the pitch, to represent France as well as possible. It is also a particular match for him”
“I really want to communicate to my France team-mates my hunger to win”
Belgium defeated favourites, Brazil to reach the semi-final while France brushed aside Uruguay in the quarter-final also.
