Belgium knocks soccer powerhouse Brazil out of World Cup

  • A Brazilian football fan has painted his face in national colours for his team's 2018 FIFA World Cup Round of 16 match against Mexico at Samara Arena Stadium- World Cup 2018 Brazil vs Belgium What time is kick-off tomorrow what TV channel is it

Not only has Belgium not won any of its games against South American teams in the knockout stages, it hasn't even managed to score a goal.

After Fernandinho, replacing the suspended Casemiro in holding midfield for Brazil, turned a corner into his own net early on, leading Tite's side to commit numbers forward in search of an equalizer, Belgium picked their opponents apart on the break, with Lukaku, Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard all heavily involved. De Bruyne made no mistake as he lashed home a thunderous drive from distance.

The second goal was a textbook counter-attack.

Everything simply fell into place as Courtois showed just how good a goalkeeper he is, while the Red Devils enjoyed crucial bits of luck in key moments.

Brazil chased an equaliser in the last 14 minutes of the match in the wake of substitute Renato Augusto's fine headed goal.

The winners of today's two quarter-final ties will then meet in the last four in St Petersburg next Tuesday. The victor of England vs. Sweden will then meet either Croatia or Russian Federation. Brazil lost to France and the Netherlands in the quarter-finals of the 2006 and 2010 World Cups and was humiliated 7-1 by Germany in the semifinals four years ago at home.

Even some of the staunchest USA allies were begrudgingly forced to side with Maduro in condemning Trump's saber rattling. One of them was Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos , while the identities of the other leaders are not known.

Belgium coach Roberto Martinez said Brazil refused to accept that the five-time World Cup champions had more talent.

In the end, the team representing the most successful country in World Cup history was no match for the talented upstarts from Belgium. But it was breached after 13 minutes in Tatarstan.

Brazil's usually impregnable defence, which had conceded only six goals in 25 matches under coach Tite, suddenly looked very vulnerable and was repeatedly sliced apart in the opening half hour. "Brazil adapted better in the second half", he added. But as the referee started to seek a video review, Neymar appeared to urge against it. No one can come close to him at this tournament in terms of intensity'.

Kompany obscured the view of his City team-mates Jesus and Fernandinho as he leapt to reach Chadli's cross and the ball rebounded in off the latter's shoulder.

Philippe Coutinho missed a great chance to draw his team level in the 83rd minute after being set up by Neymar.
