Brazil's Ronaldo defends Neymar

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

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

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

Martinez signed a new contract to lead Belgium to the 2020 European Championships and said he lived "from project to project" and that in football "you can only look at the present".

Both player and manager will hope that the football does the talking on Saturday evening, as Brazil face Belgium in a game to take them to the last 4 in Russian Federation and set up a game against France.

Whilst playing in a more attacking position in the Premier Leauge right behind the strikers, which guarantees more goals and assists to his name, in his national team De Bruyne features in front of the defence alongside Tianjin Quanjian midfielder Alex Witsel.


After automatically qualifying as host country and entering the tournament as the lowest-ranked side, Russian Federation reached the World Cup knockout stage for the first time in post-Soviet history after victories against Saudi Arabia and Egypt. "The players that they have. both teams deserve to be facing each other a little further on in this tournament and not in the quarterfinal". I don't think referees have been protecting him enough. Our biggest regret would be to play an insipid match and lose 1-0 like against Argentina in 2014.

Not only has Belgium not won any of its games against South American teams in the knockout stages, it hasn't even managed to score a goal. If we talk about their individual qualities and the fact they are well organised, there's no point in comparing ourselves one on one. We have to repeat what we have been doing in the last four games, be well organised and defend well.

He added: "From what I have seen, Brazil are compact everywhere".

The 26-year-old was widely criticised for his theatrical reaction when he claimed that Mexico's Miguel Layun stood on his ankle in Brazil's 2-0 last-16 victory, but Tite previously said he supported Neymar's view of the incident.

Brazil forward Neymar has had 24 shots in Russian Federation, more than anyone else at the tournament. The game will be held in Kazan will start at 21:00. If it becomes a match of individual performances we've got no chance.
