France's main sports paper L'Equipe, on the other hand, changed the cover of Tintin's "Destination Moon" to feature former French World Cup winning captain Didier Deschamps and Olivier Giroud heading for a space-bound rocket guarded by Belgian players, including their goalie Thibaut Courtois, who has earned a name for himself in this edition.

No screens for watching the World Cup had previously been installed in public places in France before due to security concerns.

"He has a strong defence in front of him, but I am sure we will be able to break through that wall".

"France were one of the favourites before the World Cup and I think the game will be tougher than against Brazil due to their individual quality", he said.

Giroud said his teammates knew Belgium very well with many players from both teams competing in the English Premier League, including himself.

"They are both geniuses", added Giroud. Kylian is more of a striker than Eden.

Giroud predicted a tight game against Belgium, saying he felt it would be "a 50-50 match".

France has a young team with players like Raphael Varane and Antoine Griezmann and the coach believes that despite recent success, they can continue to improve. "We have a big rivalry with Belgium - it is a derby, so this game will have an English feel to it".

Still, Kevin Miles of the Football Supporters Federation expects between 5,000 and 7,000 fans for Wednesday's semifinal against Croatia, but admits "a lot of people are doing it last minute, so it's very hard to put numbers on it". "We want them to bring it home - and we want everyone on our roads to get home safely".

"We never had doubts about him - you [media] doubted him", said the full-back. However, we are scared of nobody. Villager Elena Vasilyeva says she's cheering on Belgium because "they're a real team". We have played against [Lionel] Messi and [Luis] Suarez, though, so we are afraid of nobody - we will work to keep them out too. "It is true that it is odd to have him against us for this match".
