After a thrilling group stage, the 2018 World Cup is about to really kick into gear.

It seems Russian Federation have been somewhat found out, which doesn't bode well for their chances against Spain, who have won their last four World Cup knockout games by a 1-0 scoreline.

Neymar has not yet captured his best form, but the five-time champions have other match-winners, not least Philippe Coutinho, and have looked strong at the back. "Indirectly, they've had a big bearing on what we're doing now".

Kane has the more hard task of facing Colombia, so Lukaku is likely to have caught his Golden Boot rival by the time the quarter-finals come around, should they both progress.

Top stat: Sweden's game against South Korea saw the most fouls (43) of any game at Russian Federation 2018 so far.

In Russia, the Germans got off to a bad start with a 1-0 loss to Mexico, and their campaign ended on an even more bitter note after a stoppage-time victor from Toni Kroos against Sweden gave the false impression they had finally kick-started their tournament.

Yet he has never wavered from his view that the only policy should be to keep winning, keep building momentum and if Belgium are taking a different view, as appears to be the case, let them feel that way.

One of them is likely to make it all the way to the last four or further with Spain, winners in 2010, and England, winners in 1966, as the only established forces in that half of the draw.


"I always remember one player in the second World Cup in Mexico, Negrete, he scored an fantastic goal, a bicycle kick in the Azteca, which stays for the history of football".

"From now on the games are life or death, you can't play for a draw, you either win or you go home", he said.

More likely, he is being true to his word.

"Today, the coach and team have to be put under serious scrutiny".

By winning the match and thus the group, Belgium moves to the "side of death" for the knockout round, where four of the top five teams in the world according to Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings - Brazil, Belgium, Portugal, and Argentina - will all compete for one spot in the final. "We have to take responsibility". "We are in the fortunate position", Southgate said.

There is a general feeling Brazil are yet to get out of first gear despite the fact they topped their group with seven points. "In the second round everybody would have liked to play against us".

"The press usually just looks at the result, they criticise us a lot without knowing all the internal aspects of it, they don't know how we prepare in detail". "I think these games are going to be different and we will recover our best form".

He added, however, that the World Cup does produce moments that go down in football folklore - often from unlikely sources. "It just wouldn't be authentic for what we've been trying to build for the last two years".
