Man Utd superstar Alexis Sanchez reveals who he wants to win the World Cup

Brazil are bidding for a record-extending sixth world title after their semi-final humiliation four years ago against Germany on home soil, but would face a tough test against a talented Belgium outfit should the Red Devils get past Japan.

Mexico have reached the last-16 in their previous six World Cups but have not made the last eight since 1986.

But following victory over Colombia and a draw with Senegal, Japan advanced from its group despite a 1-0 defeat to Poland in its final group match.

Danilo is available to play for Brazil after missing the team's last two matches with a right hip injury, but Marcelo, who left early in the group stage finale against Serbia with back spasms, is out.

Neymar scored the first goal in Brazil's 2-0 win over Mexico to double his World Cup tally, and Meunier admitted that keeping the 26-year-old at bay in Friday's clash would be hard.

Alexis Sanchez wants Manchester United team-mate and Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku to win the Golden Boot at the World Cup . "It's in our hands, we need to give everything and see what happens".

"'" feel angry not to go, we could have been there, but I want Belgium to be world champion for my friend Lukaku", Sanchez told Fox Sports.

"Neymar is probably the best player I've ever played with or against. All our players are top class, their clubs are always favorites", Casemiro said.

Belgium's Nacer Chadli scores their third goal.

Nishino, who was the JFA's technical director, was given the task of rebuilding trust in the Japan camp, and the team's performances in Russian Federation show that the players responded positively.
