Belgium Boss Defends His Tactics Surrounding Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne

Watch: The best social media memes as fans troll Neymar roll

"I think Kevin De Bruyne's influence in our team has been a lot deeper; a little bit earlier, allowing his team to have the influence that we have in the final third and being a real playmaker for us".

"I've been speaking about it with a few of the boys", said England defender John Stones, according to British media.

"We are following all the news and hoping every second that you see daylight again", Klopp said.

Speaking on the radio network, Martinez, who spent much of his playing career and all of his coaching career in England before taking over with Belgium, said he hadn't expected to be linked with the post.

"I am more mature and have more experience than at the last World Cup, and the team is more consistent", insisted Willian, who appeared from the bench in the 7-1 semi-final humiliation against Germany in 2014.

"The whole of our nation is euphoric, they are upbeat, there are parties going on when Croatia play, they are out in the squares, out in the's great that our president is going to be there tomorrow", Dalic said.

"I try to make people understand that nothing will change in our preparation".

"We can enjoy it from the first minute", Martinez said. If we talk about their individual qualities and the fact they are well organised, there's no point in comparing ourselves one on one.

The core of that side remains in place in Russian Federation, where Belgium has won all four of its matches, including coming back from 2-0 down to beat Japan in the round of 16 with a thrilling counterattack in the final seconds of injury time.

Neymar won his race to be fit in time to make Tite's final squad for Russian Federation after suffering a fractured metatarsal while playing for French champions Paris Saint-Germain in February, and he has scored two of Brazil's seven goals at the tournament so far. Ah, I see you're too scared to reply.

As has been the case throughout this World Cup, Brazilian forward Neymar will likely garner much of the attention during the match, both for his skills and speed as well as his on-field theatrics. The game will be held in Kazan will start at 21:00. "We're not afraid. We're want to come up against the best". It'll be a very special day for us, but I believe in our chances.
