Neymar will be 'the best player in the world' according to Romelu Lukaku ahead of World Cup quarter-final

Danilo ruled out for the rest of the World Cup

Neymar described Brazil's World Cup exit at the quarter-final stage as "the saddest moment" of his career.

"Very happy to be part of this team, I am proud of everyone".

The Manchester United striker has scored four goals at Russian Federation 2018 and mixed them with some more delicate moments, such as the sublime dummy that set up Nacer Chadli's victor against Japan, too.

All this aside, Twitter users and football fans from all around the world have chose to show off their acting talents by doing their very best Neymar impersonation, appropriately titled the Neymar Challenge.

"The term "golden generation" is obviously one the players didn't come up with and it's not something we pay too much importance to", he told a news conference at Belgium's training base outside Moscow.

Despite the fact the 27-year-old might be getting fewer goals and assists, Martinez says he still has a massive influence on the way the Red Devils are looking to play.

Three of the four are really experienced defenders so you have to know how to attack. Against Brazil, it will not be about ball possession, but what you do with it.

Neymar, who only just recovered from a metatarsal injury in time to play in Russian Federation, spoke of his pride in his team-mates, who failed to emulate Brazil's achievement of reaching the semi-finals in 2014.

Martinez's men put that to bed in style in Kazan, though, matching Belgium's previous best World Cup run when they reached the last four in 1986. There is something really special about this squad.

"We have worked hard over two years for this and we are as ready as we ever can be".

"The way we work sometimes causes a lot of contact, we slow down the field, the accelerations are higher".

The right-back position, however, has been a constant source of grief for coach Tite since even before the World Cup began.

"The game against Japan gave us a big boost", he said.

"Now everything's fine not only for me, but for the whole team".
