  • World Cup 2018: Is Belgium's golden generation finally about to deliver?

Brazil in the second half, twice found the way to the gates of Mexico and the seventh time in a row, reached the quarter-final stage of the world Cup.

Should the 26-year-old reign in his reactions or does he have every right to overreact?

The 20-second-clip features children running on a field, each dodging their own football. "I'm stepping aside so that tomorrow, when I want to to run around in the park with my children, I'll be able to do so".

The world's most expensive player has 11 goals and nine assists in his last 19 games for Brazil.

A Reddit user posted an image from Neymar's Instagram story showing a lobby with some very recognizable usernames including "Menino Ney" (PSG player Neymar Jr), -J-E-S-U-S (Manchester City's Gabriel Jesus) and coutinho11 (Barcelona's Philippe Coutinho).

Meanwhile, former Germany captain and World Cup victor Lothar Matthaeus said Neymar is a world class footballer who does not need to exaggerate when he is fouled because it does not earn him any sympathy with the fans.

Cutting out the play-acting would also help Neymar win votes, 1990 World Cup victor Lothar Matthaeus said Wednesday.

Spain's Andres Iniesta retires from global football following World Cup exit
With 131 appearances, Iniesta was Spain's fourth-most-capped player , behind Iker Casillas, Sergio Ramos and Xavi Hernandez. We've achieved great success, things that we all dreamed of since we were kids, but also great deceptions and hard moments.

This Brazil team is not just about Neymar, even if his theatrics and intermittent magic, like his opener against Mexico, are what immediately catch the eye and dominate the headlines.

"This is normal because [Neymar] has many qualities", Silva told reporters.

All goals and risky moments of the next game day of the world Cup.

Ronaldo, a three-time victor of FIFA's best player award, and Matthaeus spoke at a briefing about the individual accolade that Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have won five times each in the past decade.

Neymar needed four minutes treatment after clutching his shin following a possible aggression by Mexican substitute Miguel Layun although TV replays show that any contact, if I existed was extremely slight. The victor will face the victor of France and Uruguay in the World Cup semi-finals. And many wondered whether Japan deserved to be in the round of 16 at all.

With the early elimination of Germany, Argentina and Spain, Brazil are now strong favourites to win their sixth World Cup as the competition enters its final 12 days.

Another fan from Colombia taught his cat to scream "goooal" to celebrate his team's goal-scoring moments.
