With Messi and Ronaldo gone, Eden Hazard can now shine

Belgium 2018 FIFA World Cup Dries Mertens

I want to go through the quarter-final, semi-final and maybe the final.

While firm favourites Brazil lock horns with underdogs Mexico, Belgium face a unsafe Japan in the matches on Monday.

Japan held a 2-0 lead in the second half before the Belgians stormed back to take control of the game in the final seconds, CBS Sports reports.

Only Australia, part of the Asian confederation since 2006, were unable to register a victory, once again illustrating that organisation and fighting spirit will not get you far at the World Cup if you can not find the net.

This is perhaps Belgium's best chance of going deep into a World Cup, with numerous pre-tournament favourites either out or playing in unconvincing fashion in their games so far. "We have top players and we play as a group, especially after the win over England", said Chelsea star Hazard. We don't have many resting days over the season. 'It's complicated. We're facing the best team in the world.

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 ideal chance for Belgium to make a very deep run.

"Look, I think it's more an attempt to undermine me than anything else".

"This is a group of players who know what they are doing on the pitch, so I expect a very, very hard game, one where we will have to concentrate at all times because they are capable of creating problems due to that dynamic approach they have".

Belgium are into the quarterfinals after victory over Japan on Monday. To beat Brazil, you have to be 100 per cent, 120 per cent of your mental and physical capacity. "We know what to do and what not to do, we are better off", insisted Hazard.
