Eden Hazard lavishes praise on Kylian Mbappe

Brazil, the overwhelming favorite to win the World Cup, has been knocked out, and now the tournament is wide open

Gareth Southgate's young side face the Scandinavians in Samara at 1400 GMT with a place in the last four against either Croatia or hosts Russian Federation up for grabs.

Then in the quarter-finals he said Belgium would get the better of Brazil, which they did, and that France would prove too strong for Uruguay.

"Maybe it's this sort of match that we needed for the future", said Hazard, the captain.

Brazil give themselves hope of rescuing their World Cup campaign as Renato Augusto pulls one back against Belgium in the second half.

"We want to keep making that history".

Eden Hazard is one of the French academy system's finest exports in the past decade but he could be the man to end Didier Deschamps's bid for World Cup glory.

Even for England, they have progressed into the semi-finals of the World Cup for only the third time, having also done so in 1966 and 1990. Already the only continent to win three World Cups in a row, Europe is now guaranteed to extend that to four in the July 15 final in Moscow.

Belgium assistant coach seems to have picked the wrong side.

"In football it's all about the winning of titles and it is when I've won trophies that I have had my greatest memories in the game", he said.

"Of course when the president supports you, it makes us comfortable".

There is even a possibility that the final can be played between Belgium and Croatia, where we will see first-time runners-up and a victor.

Neymar was ruled out by injury four years ago when Brazil slumped to a 7-1 defeat against Germany with Scolari in charge.

Belgium's golden generation laid down a marker by beating favourites Brazil on Friday in Kazan thanks to a Fernandinho own goal and Kevin De Bruyne's strike.

Argentina was eliminated from World Cup contention in the first of the knockout rounds.

"It's a heavy, bitter feeling. It's very hard to be here".

Neymar left in tears at the final whistle, refusing to talk to waiting media.

And Hazard's bracket is remarkably accurate, with five of eight quarter-finalists correctly predicted as well as France's meeting with Belgium in the semi-final.
