Brazil favourites in ‘dream’ clash - Belgian coach

Croatia were as good as Argentina were bad in their group stage clash

"[Casemiro] and Fernandinho are similar, they both mark very well", Brazil's Willian said, according to ESPN.

Although Luis put in a solid display against Mexico, Tite may be tempted to recall his preferred left back Marcelo, who missed the match with a back injury but returned to training.

Brazil have named Miranda as their captain for the World Cup quarter-final against Belgium.

Martinez feels his side, despite being stacked with individual talent, cannot be regarded as favourites due to their inexperience but he is convinced they can flourish.

Belgium will need their wing backs to be operating at full tilt if they are to get back and assist. The most important aspect tomorrow is our chance to play in the quarter-final.

"We can't wait. I feel we are as ready as we can be". The signs are positive and of a real desire to be on the football pitch. Still, I hope he stops being so dramatic because it could harm the team. However, this is the kind of encounter towards which the Red Devils have worked in the last two years. We're going to be very excited to see Brazil in front of us.

Manchester City midfielder Fernandinho will come in for the suspended Casemiro. But mistakes such as the ones that allowed Japan to grab a two-goal lead are sure to be punished by a more creative Brazilian squad.

Netflix Tests Pricey Ultra Tier For 4K Streamers
Some reports have said that Netflix's existing plans might be altered to change how many devices could be used simultaneously. It sure is, but Netflix is reportedly testing a new tier that is pricier than the current Premium tier.

This will be the fifth meeting between these sides.

That respect was evident in the Spaniard's every utterance on Thursday but, while acknowledging the dangers presented by Brazil forward Neymar, Martinez was confident the skills of the likes of Eden Hazard would also be influential for Belgium. But, they were largely comfortable in their Round of 16 game against Mexico, as the Selecao saw of El Tri in an efficient 2-0 win.

That meant they finished atop of group G, but it also sent them to what by all accounts is the stronger side of the tournament bracket, given it features France and Uruguay in addition to Brazil, five-time winners of the tournament. They have made it through to the next round on 4 of those occasions while getting knocked out twice - in 2006 vs France and in 2010 vs the Netherlands, both sides ended up as runners-up that year.

Belgium are the top-scorers in this World Cup with 12 goals, while Brazil have had the most attempts on goal in the tournament (77) despite scoring just seven times.

Brazil coach Tite dismissed talk that his team is the favourite to win the match against Belgium, let alone the World Cup.

Four years after opening his World Cup account with a crucial extra-time victor over the United States in the group stages, Lukaku started Russian Federation 2018 with a bang.

England's Marcus Rashford scores from the penalty spot in a shootout at the end of the round of 16 match between Colombia and England at the 2018 soccer World Cup in the Spartak Stadium, in Moscow, Russia, Tuesday, July 3, 2018.
