Who's saying what at the World Cup

Belgium came back from 2-0 down to beat Japan with a 94th-minute victor.

The simple yet touching gestures of Japanese fans and their team have elevated the Japanese World Cup delegation to a class unmatched in most global sporting events.

Brazil star Neymar put another feather in his cap during his country's World Cup last-16 encounter against Mexico. He has scored at consecutive World Cups. "I am devastated", he said.

"Maybe we gave the European crowds a message that they should bring more Japanese players, not even national players".

Despite being huge underdogs against the No. 3 ranked team in the world, Japan led the game, 2-0, with just 25 minutes left on the clock in the second half.

The Japanese squad were eliminated from the World Cup tournament in a disappointing 3-2 defeat to Belgium on Monday.


"I wanted to create a new chapter in history, but we have realized what a big wall in world football we have to climb".

The Japanese team's commitment to leaving the Rostov-on-Don stadium and the tournament itself in a courteous manner felt even more impressive, as only 15 minutes from the final whistle they were on the verge of extending their stay in Russian Federation and knocking out star-studded Belgium in the process.

"I am really happy for the match, not only individually but also for the whole team". That was the first major tournament for many of us, knockout matches have a lot to do with experience and can be complicated.

Belgium face Japan in the last-16 with a potential tie against Brazil in the quarter-finals.

"Anyway, I'll do my best".

With so many presumptive title contenders now eliminated from the tournament, and other leading candidates not looking near as impressive as most expected them to, this could be flawless chance for Belgium to make a very deep run.
