Thierry Henry backs France to succeed

Former France striker Thierry Henry backs the current team to be successful at the World Cup and future major tournaments.

Former France striker Thierry Henry has backed the current generation of players to succeed at major tournaments.

Les Bleus are enjoying a strong World Cup campaign out in Brazil, where they have already booked their place in the last 16 with one group game left to play.

When asked what advice he would give the younger members of the French squad, Henry told "The two pieces of advice that I would give them is to make the most of it, and to understand that experience comes from playing in tournaments like these.

"They'll learn a lot, and it won't always be easy, but this generation really does have the quality to do well and lift trophies. I hope they do it quite quickly. When you play in a World Cup, you never know if you'll get the chance to do it again."

France play their final Group E fixture on Wednesday when they face Ecuador in Rio de Janeiro.
