Belgium fancied to knock Brazil out of the World Cup

World Cup QF: Both Brazil, Belgium battling bad vibes

Belgium beat Brazil 2-1 in Kazan to set the first semi-final of 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ in stone, and booking their return to the final four for the first time in three decades.

Host to six matches at the 2018 World Cup, Kazan Arena is the same stadium where Brazil's fellow perennial World Cup favorites, Germany and Argentina were eliminated from the tournament this summer.

The introduction of Fellaini and Chadli in the 65th minute turned things around for Belgium as both substitutes found the net.

Belgium have a secret weapon against Brazil, and he's unlikely to even start their quarter-final tomorrow morning (Singapore time).

Moments later, Belgium would double the lead with a rapid counterattack led by imposing forward Lukaku. However, the South American nation shot themselves in the foot by scoring an own goal through Manchester City defender Fernandinho off of a corner on minute 13.

Trailing for the first time in the World Cup, a focused Seleção came out in the second looking determined to get on the scoreboard.

This should be an exciting game to watch, as it'll pit Belgium's relentless offense against Brazil's impenetrable defense.

Finally at the 76th minute, the Seleção broke through.

Renato Augusto scored late on, but Belgium held out.

Hazard continued to cause Brazil's defence all sorts of problems after the break, while Neymar, who has been heavily criticisied in Russian Federation, produced an underwhelming display.

And a lot of that was down to a wonderful save from Thibaut Courtois in injury-time from a superbly hit shot from Neymar.

"It's incredible. This team wants to win every game, against England people said it was better to lose but we won the game, we have confidence in our team".

It was a Neymar-Hazard clash, two players with similar playing quality of skill, speed and dexterity but on the night it was the Belgian man who showed objective, led with example, whilst the other in yellow, looked out of sorts, tried on many occasions to win an underserving sympathy, penalty from the referee.

"We are here to try and win the World Cup and are very united".

"If you're a neutral, you can sit back and say, 'What a match!' Anyone who appreciates football can see that this was a attractive game".

Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku won't be heard complaining that his team's reward for winning its World Cup group is ending up in what appears to be the far harder side of the draw and meeting five-time champion Brazil in the quarterfinals.
