  • Neymar celebrates with teammate Paulinho after scoring his team's first goal against Mexico

The team, who came into the tournament as the lowest-ranked team, have defied their fans' expectations by reaching the quarter-finals.

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. When the World Cup began a few weeks ago, the teams that enjoyed maximum support were Brazil, Argentina, Portugal, Spain and Germany, thanks to the star-studded line-up of each team.

Brazil v Belgium - Saturday July 7, 3am.

Spain was expected to feature in the last eight but ultimately failed to beat host Russian Federation, who gave them a bitter flight home after 1-1 at the regular time and penalty-shootout loss.

France overran Argentina in a last-16 match that appeared to signal the passing of a torch to a new generation of superstars, as 19-year-old Kylian Mbappe scored twice to outshine Lionel Messi and dump the 2014 finalists out of the competition.

Which brings us full circle to England who, as previously mentioned, will face Sweden.

I am still backing Brazil to win this World Cup, but the French would give them a serious test.

"I think we primarily must focus on ourselves because I think our team has bigger quality, we just need to show that on the pitch and we will be able to set the tone", Rebic said.

"It´s a great opportunity, and although our team will be individually better in two years, we might not have this opportunity again", Southgate told the BBC.

The quarter-finals of the World Cup promises to be just as exciting as the round of 16, with some sumptuous fixtures in store.

Neymar is found his scoring touch for the Selecao but seems to have not got over his habit of play acting.

"If you want to achieve something, you have to fight for it every time", said Lukaku, who has impressed at the World Cup with four goals and is second in the Golden Boot race, behind England's Harry Kane with six.

"They will waste time, they will fall down, surround the referee".

The CBF said that Danilo would not have the time to recover from the injury should Tite's side beat Belgium and advance to the semi-finals. Now we are down to last 8 in the Quarter-Final round.

After Japan blew a 2-0 lead with 25 minutes left, the players and fans could have thrown a huge fit - but instead they respectfully said thank you to their hosts. Spain was one of the tournament's favourites but could not defeat one of the weakest teams on paper.

"But it is important to remember that Liverpool have been very good to us with this friendly".
