Fastest Players At The World Cup So Far, Mbappe Not In Top 20?

Brazil exit means only Europeans left standing at World Cup

Rio de Janeiro - Brazilian midfielder Fernandinho and family members have been victims of racist insults on social media since his World Cup own goal on Friday, when Brazil was eliminated by Belgium in the quarter-finals of the World Cup in Russian Federation.

The Samba Boys are course for their sixth World Cup title but will have to compete with the talented Belgian golden generation. "They have many good players and the danger will come from everywhere".

Lukaku entered this summer's World Cup off the back of scoring 27 goals in 51 appearances during his first season at Old Trafford.

Belgium showed plenty of attacking flair in their 2-1 win over Brazil in the other quarter-final and Varane singled out forward Romelu Lukaku and playmaker Eden Hazard as two of the players the French would have to be wary off.

They were so complete, if a touch lucky, in their victory over Brazil in the quarter-finals that they resembled any strong defensive team of the 1970s but at double the speed and athleticism.

"He's been very close (to Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo) for a few years now, but you can't be doing that", Foster said.

"And then you see the third goal and only Kevin De Bruyne can do what he did".

Brazil played their 109th World Cup game, joining Germany for the record for most matches in World Cup history.

Belgium will now play a semifinal match against France. They are one of those teams which have evolved as the tournament progressed and have learnt from their mistakes especially after the Japan game, where they had to come back from a two-goal deficit.

These kids training to play soccer like Neymar in the World Cup all deserve an A+. Italy, France, Germany and Portugal were the semi-finalists at the 2006 World Cup, the last time this had happened. Only Guillermo Ochoa of Mexico, who were knocked out in the round of 16 by Brazil, has had more saves in the 2018 World Cup with 24.
