Colombian who broke Neymar and Brazil's hearts retires

World Cup 2018: Is Belgium's golden generation finally about to deliver?

"He is probably the best player I have ever played alongside or against".

A goal, an assist and infuriating a worldwide audience and the opposition - just another World Cup day for Neymar. "Our transitions were really quick", said Brazil coach Tite after their 2-0 defeat of Mexico on Monday night and he was half right.

"I'm going to tell you something: Neymar went three and a half months without playing a match".

Brazil is heading to the World Cup quarter-finals in Russian Federation after beating Mexico 2-0 in the round of 16.

Abhijit: It's hard to not feel for Japan after yesterday's match, but the win for Belgium is an absolute bonkers news for any football fan.

Neymar needed four minutes treatment after clutching his shin following a possible aggression by Mexican substitute Miguel Layun although TV replays show that any contact, if I existed was extremely slight.

Thiago Silva is preparing to face a "very strong" Belgium in the quarter-finals and knows Brazil can not become complacent amid their status as World Cup favourites.

Manchester United's Marouane Fellaini scored the equalizer five minutes later from Eden Hazard's cross, and winger Nacer Chadli slotted in the victor deep in extra time to secure a spot in the last eight and protecting Belgium's unbeaten run in the tournament.

This is supposed to be Belgium's golden generation, and perhaps for the first time we are beginning to see why.

"We wasted a lot of time because of one single player", Osorio said. If we give Brazil a chance, they will take it.

After watching holders Germany, Spain and Argentina all exit the competition in the last week in various states of disarray, the Selecao eased into the quarter-finals with a 2-0 victory against Mexico on Monday.

Even that goal conceded against Switzerland in their opening game was a controversial one as Miranda was pushed by Steven Zuber but VAR didn't intervene much to the chagrin of the Brazilian football federation, who launched an official complaint to FIFA.

Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar was often at the centre of things, as he scored and played a key role in Roberto Firmino getting the second.
