A living legend of French football, Henry was one of the stars during their 1998 World Cup win.

"He's quick and strong, a complete defender", Vermaelen said. "Portugal is not the Belgium side we face tomorrow, we have to give everything to get there", said Deschamps.

Russian Federation is holding its first-ever FIFA World Cup, which kicked off in Moscow with a spectacular opening show at the Luzhniki Stadium on the night of June 14.

"Even if four players were missing from our session today as a precautionary measure, everyone will be available for tomorrow", Deschamps told the media.

There were no more than a few dozen England fans there as of late Tuesday afternoon, with those singing team songs heavily outnumbered by passers-by filming them on phones.

Arsenal legend Henry enjoyed a glittering global career, winning the 1998 World Cup and 2000 European Championship.

Speaking to reporters via BBC Sport Deschamps said: "It is true Olivier has not scored yet, but - I repeat - yet. You have to congratulate France and wish them well for the final".

"All I am going to say now is that we are in the semifinal and we have the chance to play in the final of the World Cup, so let's try to do everything".

"Thibaut is hard to beat and he has been very good at this World Cup", he told a news conference on Sunday.

"Belgium are gaining momentum - they have great players, but we are sure of our qualities, and we have an exceptional squad that is very together", he said. France and Belgium have met each other 73 times in all competitions and the latter has an upper hand as they have won 30 times.

France goalkeeper and captain Hugo Lloris is rallying around his team Les Bleus prepare for their crucial World Cup Semi final clash with Belgiun here tonight.
