Brazil's Neymar says World Cup defeat is 'saddest moment of my career'

"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". "I feel that's probably the biggest strength that we have as a football team". It allowed greater flexibility among players and helped them hone their individual skills. "I did my job and made sure the team was calm in hard situations". "I felt that we had the match in our hands".

After a brace in Atletico Madrid's Europa League final win over Marseille, firing France to their second World Cup would cap a glittering year for the newly contracted 27-year-old.

"World Cups don't happen every day, you get to play in them perhaps two or three times in your life, if you're lucky".

After a heartbreaking loss on home soil in the final of EURO 2016, France have a point to prove and will be determined to secure their spot in the World Cup final.

"Neymar can come back in Paris with the envy to win everything".

Neymar played the entire 90minutes, as Belgium beat the South Americans 2-1 on Friday night.

This will be the first competitive meeting between the two sides since the 1986 World Cup, when France won 4-2 in the third-place playoff. Over the past decade, Belgium have grown stronger and stronger to the extent that they are being tipped as dark horses to end the dominance of the eternal favourites like Brazil and Germany.

Excluding shootouts, France have lost just one of their last 13 games in the knockout rounds of the World Cup (W10 D2 L1).

Romelu Lukaku has been directly involved in 20 goals in his last 13 games for Belgium in all competitions (17 goals, 3 assists).

Scoring has increased since the start of the World Cup, putting the average at 2.62 goals per match, slightly below the 2014 average of 2.71.

For Didier Deschamps Les Bleus side the time is now for their star-studded roster to show what they are truly capable of after a run of less than thrilling performances on the way to the semi-finals.

The Chelsea star has been involved in 14 goals in his past 14 internationals, with eight goals and six assists.

This is going to be a cracker! "I can understand that it causes problems, some people think he dives too much..."

Although Sweden rallied in the final 30 minutes, forcing two good saves from goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, England comfortably held on for its first shutout of the tournament. The young English squad deviates from their traditional approach of putting only high profile players in the national team.

For me, he is the best young footballer on the planet.

He told the crowd: "I see a lot of Brazilian flags: Have courage!" This is his time to shine.
