Brazil exit means only Europeans left standing at World Cup

Brazil exit means only Europeans left standing at World Cup

Brazil will be without their right-back Danilo for the rest of the World Cup, after injuring his ankle in training on the eve of Friday's quarter-final against Belgium.

Brazil boss Tite has revealed Manchester United's newest signing, Fred, was not afforded game time at the World Cup due to an injury which impacted his match fitness.

"President Putin called me before the (last-16) game with the Spanish and after", Cherchesov said.

"These two teams are constructed to score and to win matches".

Lukaku was asked for his views on Neymar, and specifically whether he believed the Brazil forward was an "actor" after his controversial reactions to challenges in the games with Serbia and Mexico.

"I think Kevin De Bruyne's influence in our team has been a lot deeper; a little bit earlier, allowing his team to have the influence that we have in the final third and being a real playmaker for us". "We will need power", he said in a hint that the physical presence of Fellaini might be deployed from the beginning.

In Hiroshima Prefecture, 41 people were missing, while seven remained out of contact in Ehime Prefecture. About 1.5 million people have been ordered to leave their homes and three million more advised to do so.

For all their critics, France have moved into the last four with a minimum of fuss, ruthlessly disposing of Uruguay 2-0 on Friday, but, De Bruyne knows how risky they are and is taking little for granted.

He, however, admitted that the South Americans are the favourites to qualify for the semi-final.

The Manchester United striker has scored four goals at Russian Federation 2018 and mixed them with some more delicate moments, such as the sublime dummy that set up Nacer Chadli's victor against Japan, too.

"We had done something big against Argentina and today we have again raised our level", Deschamps said. "The players know this and it is just an extra boost for us in terms of motivation".

"There is something special about this squad".

In the other half of the draw, Belgium will play France in Saint Petersburg next week after Didier Deschamps's side saw off two-time winners Uruguay 2-0 in an impressive display. If we give Brazil a chance, they will take it.
