Dier tackled Croatia's midfield kingpin Luka Modric twice last season - and the Real Madrid star is likely to be the biggest threat to England's hopes of reaching the World Cup Final.

England have been based in Repino near St. Petersburg for the tournament, but their campaign has taken them to five different host cities.

"I didn't see France running away with the game", Martinez added.

RM: Philippe Coutinho - Brazil: With Neymar stealing the limelight, Coutinho quietly became Brazil's key man at this World Cup and was particularly excellent against Mexico.

"It's nice to hear people enjoying it again, anyway". We played a very good match in terms of our organization.

Henry, France's all-time leading goalscorer, was a member of the squads that won the 1998 World Cup on home soil and Euro 2000 alongside French boss Didier Deschamps. Of the tournament's star players, Romelu Lukaku has performed as strongly as we expected him to. "We will see after this practice session", he said.
