  • Neymar- Cropped

While some of their biggest rivals have already fallen by the wayside in Russia, Brazil have been making serene progress towards the latter stages of the World Cup. I don't like this provocation and acting and I can not understand why a player likes to cheat.

"Neymar is a star player too", Maradona said.

"He's one of the top five players in the world, why does he need to act?"

But Neymar's sparkling performance was tarnished by yet another example of his tendency to overreact to seemingly innocuous challenges.

But they couldn't find a way to stop Neymar.

Brazil, after defeating Mexico on Monday, remains the hot favorite to win the World Cup in Russian Federation, but Belgium presents arguably their biggest hurdle yet. The goal somewhat changed the momentum of the game as Brazil started playing attacking football and Mexico opted for counterattacks. "I am against all these opinions you mentioned".

"I wouldn't like to see him coming out of the doctor's surgery after getting a flu injection".

With Portugal and Argentina both leaving Russian Federation in the round of 16, the award seems open for a new victor to emerge.

"It's easy to win the title in France", Matthaeus said.

"Anyway, I'll do my best".

The German great picked out another PSG star, Kylian Mbappe of France, England captain Harry Kane and Croatia captain Luka Modric as potential candidates for the Federation Internationale de Football Association award when voting opens July 23.

What do you get when two of the best players in the world make a #WorldCup exit on the same day?

Following the worldwide condemnation, Neymar defended himself.

But it was not his match-winning intervention that fans were discussing after the 2-0 win at the Samara Arena. Belgium are not champions yet, but they look most likely to be amongst the teams left in the World Cup.

Try Kylian Mbappe! He stunned Argentina with his pace and goal-scoring ability.

"I remember Colombia [against England on Tuesday] how they were acting", he added.

The Paris Saint-Germain forward stabbed home a low cross from Willian in the 51st minute to score his sixth World Cup goal and second of this year's tournament, but first in a knockout match.

Against Mexico, Neymar burst into life after Brazil weathered early pressure from opponents determined to end a 32-year wait to reach the quarter-finals.
