Look for Goals Aplenty in the Belgium v

World Cup 2018 | Henry Winter World Cup After 28 years – and 27 games – here was 90 minutes of heaven Sweden 0 England 2

Kevin De Bruyne even admitted that the Belgium team "would find it normal" ahead of the biggest game in the country's history, to hear their coach singing La Marseillaise in St Petersburg.

The connections between the two national team setups have become increasingly apparent in the two barren days between the last quarterfinal and the start of the last four.

Belgium coach Roberto Martinez says his French assistant Thierry Henry is the missing ingredient his team need in their World Cup bid, as the two nations prepare to meet in Tuesday's semi-final.

The Belgium vs France FIFA World Cup semifinal will see many English Premier League players on show.

While, Martinez isn't expected to mirror the entirety of his masterplan against France, this newfound setup is the flawless marriage between Belgium's high-flying offensive interplay and resoluteness at the back with the Alderweireld-Kompany-Vertonghen trio coming to the fore against one of the tournament's most potent attacking threats in Brazil.

"It is not based on the fact that they have a lot of players from Africa in their team but If you look at virtually every position of France in comparison with Belgium and England - they are a bit more steady, very balanced in their play, solid defensively and fantastic offensively, he continued".

With former France striker Thierry Henry as an assistant coach, Belgium leads the scoring in Russian Federation with 14 goals in its five World Cup matches.

"It might be a bit hard for him but he´s working for Belgium now, he wants us to win". "On a personal note it is with great pleasure that I am going to see him again".

Football is a team game and it's not all about the goal scorers.

"They have not conceded goals and struggled to come back".

Varner, Kraft tied at Greenbrier
This is Kraft's first 36-hole lead of his PGA Tour career. "It's still early", Kraft said. "Last year I didn't putt so well". Backing up his opening 64, Kraft moved into 13 under - a shot clear of Anirban Lahiri (61) and Webb Simpson (67).

These are the semi-final matchups at the FIFA World Cup (SCHEDULE)
Vardy was an unused substitute in England's quarter-final win over Sweden on Saturday after picking up a groin injury last week. Croatia have gone through two extra times and two penalty shootouts - they must be shot , physically and mentally.

"We've strived to be as good as we could be at global level and it's taken us two years to get there. But there haven't been one or two secrets to make it work, it's been common sense", he said. Belgium: Thibaut Courtois; Jan Vertonghen, Vincent Kompany, Toby Alderweireld, Thomas Meunier; Nacir Chadli, Axel Witsel, Marouane Fellaini; Eden Hazard, Romelu Lukaku, Kevin De Bruyne.

"He plays an extremely important role for Martinez", Pfaff said.

"He's a different player now, and he will be a star for the next 15 years". "Kylian told me that he watched my videos when he was younger. That's the quality that he has".

Belgium can call upon the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Eden Hazard and Kevin De Bruyne, while Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe have shone for France in Russian Federation.

Looking at the Opta stats used to power Sky Sports Fantasy Six-a-Side's scoring system, we pick out the players averaging the most points per game in Russian Federation so far...

The 19-year-old has three goals already at the tournament.

He was integral in their 4-3 win over Argentina in a last-16 stage and boasts three goals at the World Cup so far.

In 29 matches for France, both in the underage sides and the seniors, Pavard has not lost a game.

Both teams know they would be strong favorites to finish the job in Russian Federation against either England or Croatia in the final, meaning it could be now or never for the pair to fulfil their undoubted promise.
