Martinez names star key to Belgium in Brazil showdown

Martinez names star key to Belgium in Brazil showdown

Manchester City star De Bruyne is yet to score at the World Cup but played a key part in Belgium's last-gasp victor against Japan in the round of 16, the Red Devils coming from two goals down to win 3-2.

Brazil's World Cup quarter-final against Belgium will pit two of Chelsea's best midfielders against each other, but Brazil's Willian told reporters he will be doing everything he can to send his team mate Eden Hazard home early from Russian Federation.

While they were stretched as a defensive unit at times by Mexico in the round of 16, their scramble defence is far more effective than four years ago.

Brazil are playing the quarter-final for the seventh successive World Cup tournament.

Tite believes the biggest challenge in the way of his players winning the World Cup for a record sixth time is not falling victim to the pressure.

The date and place of the meeting of Putin and trump
It's the first official summit between the two powers, though they've met twice before on the sidelines of worldwide gatherings. Moscow said Trump had invited Putin for a summit at the White House but the focus has shifted to a meeting on neutral ground.

Lukaku may find himself outdone by Neymar, who was the star of Brazil's 2-0 win over Mexico.

"We will need power".

"But it's a dream match for our players, they were born to play in a match like this".

"I don't think it's the most important game [in my career], because if we win, then the game after that will be more important, won't it?

But not one day do I go to bed thinking what if we lose", he said, though he also commented how the match would be as big for Brazil as it would for Belgium. Against Brazil, it will not be about ball possession, but what you do with it. "I don't see that as a valid result". They have several high qualities, very skillful, and can play a very vertical game.

Earlier the squad had been greeted by hundreds of supporters when they touched down in Kazan as Neymar took photos of the welcome and declared: "This is Brazil". Brazil will face Belgium in their Russian Federation 2018 World Cup quarter-final football match at the Kazan Arena in Kazan on July 6, 2018. With Casemiro out, De Bruyne can be the man to exploit Brazil's core.

Willian said that victory over Japan and adversity will have boosted Belgium's confidence but that he was sure his own team are favourites to move on to the semi-finals. They have only gone out at this stage twice in that run (against France in 2006 and Netherlands in 2010).

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

The European side has been fairly consistent in the FIFA World Cup 2018 so far and delivered a historic entertainer in the round of 16 against Japan.

"Brazil are ranked second in the world, we're number three, we know who we are and we know the magnitude of the game".

The five killed were Rob Hiaasen (59); Wendi Winters (65); Rebecca Smith (34); Gerald Fischman (61); and John McNamara. The 38-year-old suspect in the attack has been charged with five counts of murder . "Obviously, I'm disappointed.

But their marauding finish, banging in three consecutive goals late in the tie to erase a 2-0 deficit, was a sobering reminder of the firepower at Roberto Martinez's disposal.
