Henry's World Cup experience the 'missing piece' for Belgium

Seven Blues reach World Cup semis

Belgium star Eden Hazard has admitted he used to support France as a youngster, just days before the two countries meet in the World Cup semi-final.

Apart from having something to say about how one can win a World Cup, Henry will have to teach Lukaku how to dismantle France and score against the resilient Les Blues.

"I would be very proud to show Thierry that he chose the wrong camp".

Henry joined Martinez's staff in 2016 and the Spaniard explained how his experience of pressure moments at the business end of tournaments offered something other members of the former Everton manager's staff could not. "Then he is a coach, his dedication, attention to detail and is trying to help any player in this squad, so he was the ideal missing piece in our technical staff".

Israeli unmanned spacecraft to land on Moon in 2019
The IAI-built spacecraft, which was build in 2013, will be transferred to the United States in November, ahead of the launch. The lunar mission is scheduled to last just two days after it touches down.

After a pair of the quarterfinal matches played on July 6, team France enjoyed a confident defeat of 2-0 over Uruguay in the city of Nizhny Novgorod, while Belgium went for 2-1 win over the legendary Brazilian team in the city of Kazan. Martinez wanted Henry to develop a winning mentality, and draw more out of Belgium's forwards. Last time out, he moved into a wider right-sided role but was no less influential, powering forward to set up Kevin De Bruyne's magical strike against Brazil, that proved to be the eventual victor.

Fred and his Brazil team looked the best outfit by far, dominating games and moving the ball fluidly, their strength in depth adding to the menace they bring.

The two European big-hitters have progressed to the final four of the World Cup in Russian Federation after overcoming some high-profile opposition en route.
