Brazil defeated Mexico who themselves knocked Germany out of World Cup at the group stage.

On the other side of the draw, five-time winners Brazil take on Belgium's so-called "Golden Generation", and 1998 champions France face Uruguay, who were crowned twice in the tournament's early history.

The remaining two last-8 matches will be played tomorrow.

The victor of the tie will face either England or Sweden, who also play on Saturday, in the last four at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium next week. We begin with England against Sweden, after Gareth Southgate's men finally banished their World Cup penalty shootout hell against Colombia. The Final is slated for the 15th of this month at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.

"Uruguay have so many assets, so many qualities", said France coach Didier Deschamps.

I don't think that will be a good idea against Brazil, but I am not sure what else Belgium manager Roberto Martinez will do. "I started playing for Croatia in 2008 and we have had a lot of unlucky defeats, we needed a bit of luck to get through, but we have worked for it", said Modric.

Meanwhile, FIFA President Gianni Infantino told President Vladimir Putin that visitors to the World Cup had fallen "in love with Russia", during a meeting Friday at the Kremlin. "He is out of the World Cup, but will continue with the group in Russian Federation".

Tropical Storm Beryl forms east of Lesser Antilles
The National Hurricane Center in Miami say the storm's winds had strengthened to 40 miles per hour (65 kph) by Thursday afternoon. Hurricane Beryl is located about 1140 miles east-southeast of the Lesser Antilles and is moving to the west at 14 mph (22 km/h).


The last few games were a whirlwind, with some of the best soccer players in the world getting eliminated.

Samara is due to host England's quarterfinal game against Sweden on Saturday. France sent Argentina and Lionel Messi home, Uruguay had another brilliant display as they saw off Cristiano Ronaldo-led-Portugal.

He recovered and was available for the 2-0 win against Mexico in the round of 16, but coach Tite kept his replacement, Fagner, in the starting lineup.

There are clear frontrunners but as I said before, this World Cup continues to surprise everyone who is watching it. The familiar criticism that has plagued France of late - that the talent is there but the team is unable to put it together - could rear its ugly head again against a Uruguayan side that has easily gelled. Since replacing Dzagoev in the Saudi game, Cheryshev has scored three goals and also hit the winning penalty in the last-16 win over Spain.

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

"Now we are in quarter-finals and we just want to bring pleasure to the supporters and to get further and we do not feel the pressure as we did before the tournament".
