It’s a European revolution at this World Cup

Tite talks to Neymar during the round of 16 match between Brazil and

"I don't care where I play", said Kevin de Bruyne, Belgium's totem.

Here, we take a look at the contenders.

However, aside from the fact he failed to inspire Brazil to beyond the last eight, the 26-year-old has also been heavily criticised for his theatrics at this summer's showpiece worldwide tournament in Russian Federation. And on that basis, the golazos so far at the 2018 World Cup are certainly up there with those at any previous tournament.

Brazil were left stunned in Friday night's match in Kazan, finding themselves 2-0 down at half-time and unable to rescue the game in the second half, despite substitute Renato Augusto getting a goal back late on.

The 25-year-old said France expect "a very hard game" against Belgium, adding that his relatively young French squad "will have to give the best of ourselves" and that they are looking to show their "growth" and "maturity".

A win in last 16 could see him potentially face 12-time Grand Slam champion Novak Djokovic in the quarter-finals. I was very low energy. "I saw that he was getting exhausted in the fifth set", said the Latvian, smiling.

But the 36-year-old has hung up her pantsuits and knee-high boots, trading them in for blush pink dresses and simple pumps . Her look that day was absolutely flawless - a stunning cream caped dress, perfectly tailored to her slender frame.

The opportunity created by Argentina and Portugal's last-16 exits was not grasped by Neymar as he turned in a frustrating display in the 2-1 quarter-final defeat to Belgium.

This World Cup has proved adept at tearing up the best laid plans of much-fancied teams and individuals, perhaps none more so than Neymar. But the 2018 World Cup has seen a record number of goals off set pieces (68), a record number of penalties awarded (28) and a record number of own goals (11).

In the 2nd semi-final, Croatia will face England. The Chelsea star has been involved in 14 goals in his past 14 internationals, with eight goals and six assists. I think the difference between the teams will be Kylian Mbappe (11/1 to score twice). It's a really tough game to call but I don't see it going to extra-time as these two will be both going all-out attack.

"I think Madrid have interest in him, but I do not know about any offers or any potential bids but it would be almost impossible to sign a player who can sell a lot like him". This is his time to shine.
