Brazil's Tite to face Should-I-Stay-or-Should-I-go decision

Brazil superstar, Neymar Jr., has admitted that their quarter-final exit at the 2018 World Cup, "is the saddest moment of my career".

Much of their determination on the global stage comes from their 1950 failure which spurred them on to win the tournament as they eventually did for the first time in Sweden in 1958.

So spare a thought for Roberto Martinez and Belgium, who conspired to eliminate the favourites this time around in a tournament where the term "favourites" no longer seems to apply.

The player, who is now on global duty with Brazil's World Cup squad, is seen as a long term replacement for Michael Carrick and an ideal partner for Paul Pogba.

The world's most expensive player following his move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain in 2017, Neymar has scored 57 goals in 90 games for Brazil since making his debut for the national side in 2010.

Belgium's shape-shifting also leaves Deschamps guessing as to how Belgium will set up in another match it won't be fovoured to win.

Brazil came to Russian Federation with a strong team, a well-liked coach and a great star.

"I met Felipao before the World Cup and we had a very good conversation", Martinez responded with a smile that hinted he appreciated the coincidence.

However, the fans of the south American team were unimpressed with the performance of their team in that game as they rained stones on their bus on their return home over the weekend.

Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku also spoke up for the Brazilian: "For me, he is not an actor".

It was no surprise that Brazil entered this World Cup as favourites to lift the trophy on July 15, as under boss Tite this team had stormed through the qualifiers, having lost just once in 18 matches en route to Russian Federation.

"Very happy to be part of this team, I am proud of everyone, they interrupted our dream but they did not remove it from our head nor from our hearts".

The Chelsea winger showcased his individual skill numerous times against Brazil, especially with a mesmerizing dribble from wide in the second half, and the statistics showed that all 10 of his dribbles in the game ended with his team still in possession. Then the second goal by De Bruyne was simply a magical shot which hardly any goalkeeper could have saved. "If he wants to lie down, he should go home and sleep".
