Belgium fancy their chances up front against Brazil in quarterfinal

Belgium’s Eden Hazard will go head-to-head with Brazil’s Neymar in the World Cup quarter-finals

They ended up winning the tournament as well.

And now they have a great opportunity to make history by beating Brazil. If we show the same mentality as we did on Monday, we have a big chance.

"There is something special in this squad, no doubt about it", said the Spaniard. The signs are positive and of a real desire to be on the football pitch.

"Traditionally, in Belgian culture, we would feel defeated even before the game [against Brazil]", Kompany said. "Over the last two years we have been working towards this moment". Both sides come into the contest in different veins of form.

Tite also jumped to the defence of Neymar, who was widely criticised for his reaction to a challenge by Mexico's Miguel Layun in their round of 16 win, and pointed out that the Paris Saint-Germain forward has made considerable improvements to his all-round game.

Belgium completed a bonkers comeback win with a stellar counter attacking goal in the last minute of stoppage time against Japan to make it to the quarterfinals.

Park Sung-hyun Wins KPMG Women's PGA Championship
Charley Hull turned in a 67 on Sunday at Kemper Lakes to finish in a tie for sixth, her third top 10 at the majors this season. Women's Open in 2011, has had top three results at all five women's majors. "I thought the tournament was gone", Jones said.

This will be the fifth meeting between these sides.

Neymar has scored two goals in Brazil's four matches, but he has been slammed by soccer pundits across the world for diving and rolling on the ground theatrically in Russian Federation.

Only Germany and Argentina, with four wins each, have won more World Cup shootouts than Brazil.

On the eve of their quarter-final Lukaku brimmed with confidence as he called on Belgium to show they deserve to live up to pre-tournament expectations. They have only gone out at this stage twice in that run (against France in 2006 and Netherlands in 2010).

Brazil and Belgium will meet on Friday at 2 p.m. ET with a ticket to the 2018 World Cup semifinals on the line. With the "Fubo Premier" bundle, you will get access to all four of the World Cup soccer TV channels in most markets. Two goals conceded against Japan isn't a problem that should be ignored, and it's safe to say Brazil has more attacking power than that side.

Play at the 2018 FIFA World Cup gets back underway Friday, and the day's quarterfinal match-ups shouldn't disappoint.

Amlo win to usher in new era in Mexico
An official quick-count revealed that Lopez Obrador took the lead with 53-53.8% of votes, according to the electoral authority. The newly elected president has said he wants to make Mexico more economically independent of the United States.

Eden Hazard will be a key player for Belgium, having been directly involved in 19 goals in his 18 games for Belgium under Roberto Martinez, scoring 10 and setting up nine.

The five-time world champions have had 150 touches in their opponents' boxes so far at the World Cup, the most of any team left in the tournament.

"As a former defender, I love watching Silva and Miranda play", former France defender William Gallas said in his role as a consultant for French radio station RMC.

But against Brazil, the Belgians will have to do much better.

Meanwhile, the likes of Thomas Meunier, Jan Vertonghen and Kevin De Bruyne will need to be careful as their next booking will lead to a one-match ban.
