Neymar Breaks His Silence On Brazil’s World Cup Exit

Brazil, the overwhelming favorite to win the World Cup, has been knocked out, and now the tournament is wide open

What was Neymar up to at this World Cup?

There is even a possibility that the final can be played between Belgium and Croatia, where we will see first-time runners-up and a victor.

The irony of Thierry Henry, one of France's all-time soccer greats, plotting his own country's downfall at the World Cup in Russian Federation has not been lost on his former team mate Didier Deschamps, who calls it a freakish situation.

"It's hard for me to talk to you", Tite said at the news conference after the match. This Belgium team have also scored their 14th goal, now a record for most goals by Belgium at a World Cup, beating the 12 scored in 1986.

It's also looking like he'll end up getting three of the final four, as England have a 2-0 lead on Sweden in injury time of their quarterfinal clash right now.

Some fans even went as far as to say that Neymar's action on the pitch had ruined Brazil's solid reputation and lost them respect others branded him a "disgrace". But Belgium has looked good as well, and could be primed to capitalize on its golden generation of players.

Manchester United striker Lukaku set up Belgium's second goal before half-time when his powerful run enabled Kevin De Bruyne to smash a finish into the corner.

Fernandinho was badly criticised four years ago when he was substituted at half-time during Brazil's 7-1 defeat to Germany in the semi-finals of the 2014 World Cup.

"It's a heavy, bitter feeling".

Neymar left in tears at the final whistle, refusing to talk to waiting media.

France return to the semi-finals against Belgium tomorrow and, while the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann and Paul Pogba stand as the potential superstar heirs to Zidane, Henry and Djorkaeff, the most striking parallel is to another undroppable striker who can not now score.

"We had done something big against Argentina and today we have again raised our level", Deschamps said.

"You can see our lack of experience sometimes, but we have so many qualities too".
