France captain Lloris: Henry faces difficult night

Tottenham's France captain Hugo Lloris believes Thierry Henry is facing an emotional rollercoaster tomorrow night.

The Les Bleus legend goes into Tuesday's World Cup semi-final helping to plot the downfall of his own country.

A win for employers Belgium, and he will celebrate his contribution to that nation's first-ever major tournament final. But it would also plunge the very French fans he thrilled 20 years ago into a despair for which they may never forgive him.

"His heart will be split," said Lloris, the France captain. "Before anything, he is French. He has been a great player.

"He has scored the most goals, second in caps. He left a mark on the history of the Les Bleus. He has a lot of passion for football inside him."
