Lionel Messi returns to Barcelona after World Cup exit

Lionel Messi returns to Barcelona after World Cup exit

Neymar has scored two goals at FIFA World Cup 2018 but more than his goals, the Brazil forward has been in news for his "dives". The two games will be played on July 6 at 7pm and 11pm respectively.

The Brazilian superstar, the most risky one-on-one player in the world, who has his country on the cusp of its sixth World Cup title, should be celebrated for his ability to beat defenders and change a match with a single run.

One thing that remains constant, amid the goals, the VAR, the penalties, the off-field action, the intrigue, the injuries, the everything, is that Neymar is a diving git and don't we all know it. The football, if it doesn't go into extra time, will finish at 5.50pm.

Brazil have played four games in the tournament and Neymar has been fouled 23 times in four games.

"Sure, Neymar - when he will win the World Cup", said Matthaeus. They can't afford any hiccups like that against the Brazilians, whose backline should make the difference in this game.

Belgium will also pose a big threat with Chelsea's Eden Hazard, Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne, and Manchester United's Romelu Lukaku and Marouane Fellaini as their potent weapons.

At odds north of 100-1 before the World Cup commenced, the Swedes emerged as the top team in Group F despite their 2-1 loss to Germany. His total time wasted on the pitch adds up to 13 minutes and 50 seconds in the entire tournament. "I think they have the quality".

Steen: Pressure is on both these teams for a different reason.

Whether or not the host country can continue its unexpected run will be one of the main storylines heading into the quarter-finals, along with the meeting of four powerhouses in a pair of games.
