Arsene Wenger reveals his three favourites to win World Cup 2018

Watch: The best social media memes as fans troll Neymar roll Japanese players leave locker room spotless after crushing World Cup loss

After Russia 2018 was shorn of two of its greatest stars on Saturday, Neymar ensured he would not be joining the exodus of headline talent by dragging Brazil through to the quarter-finals two days later.

He is an excellent player, one of the five best players in the world", the 57-year-old Matthaeus, who won the 1990 world Cup with West Germany, told reporters."Why does he need the acting?

Much of the focus surrounding Brazil's bid for a record-extending sixth world title has inevitably been on Neymar.

So often the man to save Portugal, Cristiano Ronaldo couldn't work his magic on Saturday against Uruguay, as they bowed out of the tournament.

Casemiro being suspended for a World Cup quarter-final should be a cause of panic.

Neymar has faced criticism for his theatrics during Brazil's World Cup 2018 campaign, but fellow countryman Ronaldo believes the Paris Saint-Germain forward is not getting enough protection from referees. In those 25 minutes, Belgion scored three times, ousting Japan from the competition and sending them home. England are the only former winners of the four teams.

But it turns out that even while out in Russian Federation, the players are using some of their time off from matches, travelling and training to sit down at their PC setups and get some matches in. Already assured of berths in the knockout stage, both sides elected to rest their regulars, and England was happy to suffer a 1-0 loss and avoid a quarterfinal clash with tournament favourites Brazil.

France never got out of first gear in easing through the group stage, but turned on the style as Mbappe dazzled in a classic 4-3 victory over Argentina to set up the clash with Uruguay.

In other quarterfinals, Brazil will play Belgium at 6am Saturday, England will play Sweden at 2am Sunday while hosts Russian Federation will play Croatia at 6am Sunday.
