Antoine Griezmann has issued a brilliant response to Thibaut Courtois' salty comments after the Belgium goalkeeper criticised France's tactics in their World Cup semi-final victory on Tuesday.
Belgium did most of the probing in the game but were contained by Didier Deschamps' side, who progressed to the final courtesy of Samuel Umtiti's winner just after half-time.
France could well replicate their 1998 heroics against Croatia in Sunday's final but received plenty of criticism from Belgium players, including Courtois, in relation to their tactics and how they picked up the victory.
"It's just an anti-football team," Courtois was quoted as saying after the game.
"Their striker plays 30 metres from his own goal. France heads a corner and does nothing more than defend.
"I would have preferred to have lost in the quarter-finals to Brazil, at least that was a team that wanted to play football."
Griezmann, however, was having none of it in his press conference ahead of the all-important clash with Croatia.
'Does Thibaut Courtois think he plays Barcelona football at Chelsea?," the Atletico Madrid star quipped.
"I don't care how, I want a second star to be on this shirt. That is all."

The avid Fornite player dishes out L's even when he's not on the pitch. Some of the Belgium players came across very bitter in defeat and Griezmann was spot on in stressing that substance comes should always come before style.
While Roberto Martinez's side are vying for third place against England, France are in their first World Cup final for 12 years and have a very good chance of getting that second star.
