It's just an anti-football team. "If I get that star, I don't care about how we play", the 27-year-old Atletico Madrid forward told a press conference at France's training base outside Moscow.

However, Griezmann argued that Courtois's own club Chelsea do not play "Barcelona football" and insists that he is exclusively focused on helping his country to win a second World Cup crown.

"I worked first with him when he was 19 and I've seen an incredible, incredible journey in his career". I always will. If I hear good things or bad things, I will keep fighting.

He finished top scorer at Euro 2016 with six goals but France lost the final to Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal on home soil.

However, France boss Deschamps started with Blaise Matuidi on the left wing for the last-four clash to give some cover.
