When the tournament began, not many people predicted a final four consisting of France (No. 7 in Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings), Belgium (No. 3), England (No. 12) and Croatia (No. 20).

The Belgium victor produced a pre-tournament bracket on the entire World Cup knockout stages three days before the opening match. France have always been a footballing stronghold but as we have seen in this World Cup, reputation precedes determination.

Belgium's quarter-final battle with Brazil will be a classic encounter between an unstoppable force and an immovable object when the tournament's joint best defence comes up against its most free-scoring attack in Kazan on Friday.

"Bolivia might not be as strong as Germany and Uruguay not as strong as England". A match won is only over 90 or 120 mins.
