General Giroud picks his best goalkeeper 1 hour ago

This summer's edition of Les Bleus is composed of players who know France as a country that can win.

Giroud will look to break his World Cup duck in Sunday's final, where France will take on either England or Croatia.

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.

Martinez's change was a forced one, with right wing-back Thomas Meunier suspended and could prompt a change in formation.

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.

Henry, who scored 51 goals in 123 worldwide appearances, played for France at four World Cups in all.

"When you are a striker like me, you always play for the teammates", Giroud said. Because our ambition is winning that final.

Excluding shootouts, France have lost just one of their last 13 games in the knockout rounds of the World Cup (W10 D2 L1).

But Belgium are counting on stars of their own like Eden Hazard and Kevin De Bruyne.
