Fans Celebrate The Fact Neymar Will Be 'Rolling Home' After Brazil's Defeat

Fans Celebrate The Fact Neymar Will Be 'Rolling Home' After Brazil's Defeat

Brazil were eliminated from the FIFA World Cup 2018 on Friday after losing 2-1 to Belgium.

Brazil beat Mexico 2-0 to knock them out in the round of 16, prompting Neymar to hit out at Guardado's side in his post-match comments, saying: "They talked too much, and now they are going home".

You have to go all the way back to the 1934 World Cup to find a tournament in which more knockout games - and that tournament was played entirely as a knockout competition - were won by a team that had trailed.

Brazil star Neymar Jr has revealed that it will be tough to play football following the Selecao's exit from the ongoing World Cup in Russian Federation.

As disheartening as the loss is for Brazil, Neymar and Co. are in good company, in a manner of speaking. Like some of the others listed, the lack of a definitive Champions League campaign could act against De Bruyne in the Ballon d'Or reckoning. Germany meanwhile, has handed a 2-0 defeat at the stadium on the final matchday of group play, which ended its title defense in the first round.

While another added: "Still can't accept that Brazil is out of World Cup 2018".

Belgium boss Roberto Martinez has called the nation's footballers "quite unique" as their golden generation sit on the brink of the World Cup final.

Vladimir Putin backing boosts Russian Federation coach Stanislav Cherchesov and his players
Although Russia failed to book a semi-final encounter with England, Cherchesov claimed Putin was impressed by their display. Croatia went on to beat Russian Federation 4-3 on penalties after an emotionally draining quarter-final game yesterday.

Romelu Lukaku is the most risky player in the two teams according to xG, averaging 0.68 non-penalty xG so far at this World Cup. The players that play against him are tough.

Following Croatia's shootout win over Russia, Fox Sports soccer analyst Alexi Lalas suggested that Russia 2018 was the greatest World Cup ever.

Of course there's no official word from the Brazil's camp as yet - so no way of knowing if the video is legitimate.

This trend has powered the rise of teams that traditionally do not do well in World Cups.

"I think Madrid have interest in him, but I do not know about any offers or any potential bids but it would be almost impossible to sign a player who can sell a lot like him".

"It's great to be facing a team like France because they are very similar in terms of the individual talent they have".

"Lukaku can make it hard for any team because of his physique".
