Belgium boss eager to face Brazil as underdogs at World Cup

Belgium boss eager to face Brazil as underdogs at World Cup

The former AC Milan player also scored one goal at the 2014 finals in Brazil and was on target in Russian Federation, coming off the bench to salvage a 2-2 draw against Senegal in Japan's second Group H match.

"Last but not least, I am also a supporter of the national team".

Wrote one Twitter user, "I love this!" "We know what to do and what not to do, we are better off", insisted Hazard.

And in the final seconds, a slick counter from the Red Devils ended with Chadli, also a substitute, slotting home into the net to book a quarter-final meeting with Brazil.

"The game is a huge challenge, Belgium are a formidable foe, they are among the top three in the world so we have to think hard about how we attack them as we are ranked 61st".

So much for this being a "World" Cup.

Roberto Martinez's risky side have lived up to their billing so far, winning all three group games. He is someone who has, over and over again, scored key goals for United at times when flashier players were nowhere to be seen.

However, Adnan Januzaj, who scored the victor in that match, has suffered a knee knock in training.

Japanese football fans fought back tears and wondered what could have been after a last-gasp goal by Belgium crushed their dreams of a historic World Cup quarter-final berth in heartbreaking fashion.

"This is our time to shine, definitely".

Following a man-of-the-match performance in Japan's opening 2-1 win over Colombia, Yuya Osako's offseason move from Cologne to Werder Bremen looks like a coup for his new club.

Despite advancing out of the group stage in the previous six World Cups, Mexico has failed to reach the quarterfinal in any of those tournaments.

Belgium coach Roberto Martinez said Nishino's negative tactics against Poland showed he had a ruthless edge.

"I feel angry not to go, we could have been there, but I want Belgium to be world champion for my friend Lukaku", Sanchez told Fox Sports.
