Belgium and France face off in mouth-watering semi-final

Brazil, the overwhelming favorite to win the World Cup, has been knocked out, and now the tournament is wide open Fastest Players At The World Cup So Far, Mbappe Not In Top 20?
| 09 July, 2018, 04:47

Here's the unofficial count for Brazil's quarter-final match against Belgium.

Neymar has fast become one of football's household names after bursting onto the scene as a precocious teenager for Santos, before his big money move to Barcelona. He is a great player with wondeful talents, but he spends most of the time in every game working out methods to cheat his way to winning free-kicks and penalties. The 1998 (six OGs) and 2014 (five OGs) editions are in second and third place in that list.

"I can say this is the saddest moment of my career", Neymar wrote on his Instagram page.

Fernandinho scored the 11th own goal of the 2018 World Cup, which is a tournament record. Although an exceptional start to next season from Messi or incredible finish to the World Cup from someone like Neymar could make things very interesting, the only way I could really see Ronaldo relinquishing his crown is if Kane or Modric inspire their country to glory in Russian Federation.

To get past Belgium in the quarterfinals at the World Cup, Brazil has to do something it has not been able to do since it last won the tournament in 2002: overcome European opposition in the knockout stages.


"What Mbappe is doing at his age, I have never seen before", said the 28-year-old. Fans thought the Selecao would finally end its World Cup title drought.

Claiming the World Cup scalp of Lionel Messi ensures France have nothing to fear against Belgium star Eden Hazard, according to Lucas Hernandez.

"France are one of the favourites to win this World Cup", Vermaelen said.

The victory boosted France's morale, and they followed it up with a workman-like 2-0 win over Uruguay that was impressive because of how well they managed to control the game against tricky opponents.

Brazil have won the World Cup 5 times followed by Italy and Germany, who have won it 4 times. England had a comfortable victory against Sweden in their quarterfinal match whereas Croatia had to fight with Russian Federation to win the game in penalties.
