Reasons Lionel Messi Should Retire From Argentina After World Cup 2018

StoriesPhilippe Coutinho How Brazil's humble attacker became the critical piece in Tite's jigsaw

Just after the play resumed after the half-time break, Neymar netted a goal to take his country 1-0 up in last-16 World Cup match. Brazil captain Thiago Silva, also Neymar's Paris Saint-Germain teammate, reminded people that Neymar was legitimately injured, with a broken foot, last winter.

England will face their toughest World Cup test against Sweden in the quarter-finals, a task more daunting than taking on tournament favourites Brazil, former England coach Sven-Goran Eriksson said.

But Ronaldo said Neymar "who is one of the most fouled players in the entire tournament - needed more protecting".

"Football is interpreted in many different ways and there are many opinions". He is an intelligent player in his movements and on how to defend himself from being tackled.

France and Brazil have already booked their spot in the quarter-finals after coming out winners in their respective second round games against Argentina and Mexico. I think they have the quality.

Meanwhile, Belgium's 3-2 win over Japan wasn't a fair reflection of how dominant the Belgians were, and they shouldn't be underestimated ahead of this game.

Even though both iconic football stars Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have bowed out of World Cup 2018, the debate over their greatness has resulted in a unusual divorce case of a Russian couple. When I was repeatedly targeted with violent actions, I felt that I was treated unjustly.

A Reddit user posted an image from Neymar's Instagram story showing a lobby with some very recognizable usernames including "Menino Ney" (PSG player Neymar Jr), -J-E-S-U-S (Manchester City's Gabriel Jesus) and coutinho11 (Barcelona's Philippe Coutinho).

Maybe now, at the quarterfinal stage, the brilliance of Neymar's play will do all the talking.

Striker Harry Kane, the English captain, who has made it clear he's more than willing to put this team on his back in this tournament, has a prolific six goals off just nine shots and now leads the World Cup's race for the Golden Boot, the award given to the player with the most goals over the course of the month.
