'I think he plays with a freedom in this France team where if he makes a mistake it's accepted, ' said Shearer.

However, his exploits at this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation, including scoring the decisive second goal in the Three Lions' 2-0 quarter-final triumph over Sweden, have seen his stock rise even further.

Samuel Umtiti scored the only goal of the game in Saint Petersburg as Les Bleus kept the Belgians at bay and Deschamps, who captained the 1998 World Cup champions, was pleased for his young squad.

"Today I'm happy but it's not like the Euros".

Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have ripped into Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud after his France performance at the World Cup. The 32-year, who recently signed for MLS side DC United, spoke to reporters at the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new stadium of the club and said that he believes that the Three Lions will bring the trophy back to the country.

"I've got a amusing feeling that the momentum is so good, and, you know, especially now that we're all going to turn up with special Gareth waistcoats, and that can only help can't it", said fan Lee Walkup, 50.

"There is still one more step to take, but we are proud of what we have done".

Deschamps also recalled France's defeat to Portugal in the Euro 2016 final in Paris two years ago, and revealed it's still weighing on the team. More than 95% of the money has come in for over 2.5 in the total goals market, including one bet of $6,000 at $2.15. There are 90 minutes to go to win France this World Cup, and we hope to go until the end.

Some may see this as a negative, but England's set-piece prowess is only a good thing, as they look a threat at every corner and free-kick that they get.

The Fatling also pointed out that some people who are not interested in the football may just want to get to work and carry on with their daily business.
