Martinez saw Belgium recover from 2-0 down to snatch a last-gasp 3-2 win over Japan in the round of 16 and book their meeting with the five-time World Cup winners.

The Paris Saint-Germain star left Russian Federation having scored two goals in five games as Brazil failed to play their best football, despite topping Group E without losing a match and then beating Mexico 2-0 in the round of 16.

Lukaku entered this summer's World Cup off the back of scoring 27 goals in 51 appearances during his first season at Old Trafford. Brazil lost to France and the Netherlands in the quarterfinals of the 2006 and 2010 World Cups and was humiliated 7-1 by Germany in the semifinals four years ago at home.

They were so complete, if a touch lucky, in their victory over Brazil in the quarter-finals that they resembled any strong defensive team of the 1970s but at double the speed and athleticism.

But England captain Kane, who leads the race for the World Cup Golden Boot with six goals, insists that Messi and Ronaldo are still the best in the business.

The news follows a threat by Iran to cut off oil reserves to the rest of the world in the wake of conflict with the US. President Donald Trump announced he was abandoning the nuclear deal and moving to reimpose sanctions on Iran.


The Belgians may want to adopt that more robust approach from the start against Brazil in order to give midfield maestros Eden Hazard and Kevin De Bruyne time to make decisive passes.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup kicked off on June 14 and will continue until July 15, with the matches being played in 11 cities across Russian Federation.

But it's also worth noting that Neymar was fouled 23 times through those four games and was the most fouled player in the tournament before Brazil's exit on July 6. "Our finishing was shambolic throughout the World Cup".

"There are some really exciting young players across the world announcing themselves on the world stage". They can defend, they are imaginative in midfield and they score goals for fun.

Belgium will go on to play France in the semi-final, with the victor going on to meet one of Sweden, England, Croatia or Russian Federation.
