"If I didn't score all tournament but we won the World Cup, of course I would take that in a heartbeat", Giroud told a news conference.

Villager Elena Vasilyeva says she's cheering on Belgium because "they're a real team". The two sides will meet on Tuesday to decide who plays in next Sunday's World Cup final against either England or Croatia.

"He might not have the flamboyant style of other players but the team needs him in each and every match", said Deschamps.

"He does many things for the team to be balanced, and it is the players around him that benefit from his presence because he attracts a lot of attention from the defenders".
